|Donner Ski Ranch|
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.
