Nestled in the picturesque Sierra Nevada at an average elevation of 6,000 feet, the Truckee-Donner area is a dynamic recreational area. This forested region is filled with lakes, streams, meadows, trails, parks, campgrounds, and all-season resorts in a sparkling, alpine environment. The Truckee community is the business hub of the High Sierra, as well as the transportation center for the region. Many seasonal events attract sportsmen, vacationers and second home residents.

Coldest Spot in the Nation?

Truckee has often earned the reputation as one of the chilliest spots in the nation. While it may be true, it really doesn't give a true picture of Truckee's pristine California weather pattern. Nestled between the peaks of the Sierra, Truckee's plateau often gets an inversion, whereby cold air is trapped overnight; thus the extreme, cold temperatures in the wee hours of the morning. As the sun begins to rise, so does the temperature, creating daytime highs 30-plus degrees above the lows.
