Off-road vehicles at Donner Ski Ranch this weekend



Donner Ski Ranch
Donner Ski Ranch will host a 4 wheel drive “Rock Crawling” event August 18 and 19. This is the third time this year that the rock crawlers have visited the challenging Donner Ski Ranch terrain.



Rock Crawlers are specially built vehicles designed to tackle extreme rocky and steep courses. Participants are timed through a tight course and penalties are accessed for off-course excursions. A spotter is allowed on the course to assist the driver with wheel placement.

These vehicles are fun to watch. Loud exhausts, spinning tires, flying dust, and occasional roll-overs are a good thing. Up to 5 classes of vehicles will be put to the test. The 5 classes include road-going jeeps to purpose built machines.

Admission is $15 per day for adults and $25 for a two-day pass. Gates open at 9:00am, racing starts at 10:00am.


Here are some rock crawlers in action.
