Donner Lake is a true jewel of the Sierras. Viewing this lake and its surrounding peaks by helicopter provides unparalleled panoramas of the Truckee area.

The Donner Lake Summit Tour departs from the Truckee Tahoe Airport, where you’ll meet your pilot at the HeliTahoe Office and take part in a short safety briefing prior to boarding.Then, you’ll be ready for your 20-minute scenic window seat flights over the second deepest lake in the U.S!

Gazing across the seemingly endless array of forest and lakes, highlighted with snow topped peaks and passes, one can truly appreciate the vast wilderness of the Tahoe Basin. This area is internationally known for its endless outdoor recreation and is also the site of Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. Sugar Bowl is one of the oldest resorts in Tahoe and was originally funded by Walt Disney in 1939, which earned him the name of nearby “Disney Peak”. While taking in the Sierra Crest and the surrounding mountains you will also be able to see sections of the Pacific Crest Trail, which snakes its way from it’s southern trail head at the US/Mexico border all the way to the US/Canada border 2,600 miles later. Located just west of downtown Truckee, this tour is a perfect intro for someone new to helicopters and looking to view the natural beauty of our home from high above it all.
