Test your luck!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Think you're in tune with nature or with Lady Luck? Buy a guess (1 guess = $5) and choose a date. The first snow date will be determined when it snows 1 inch in front of the Pioneer Monument at Donner Memorial State Park. The lucky winner will win a prize bag made up of a SSPF Lake Tahoe Backpack, Emerald Bay Vikingsholm Puzzle, Lake Tahoe Water Bottle, and Sugar Pine Point State Park Bucket Hat!

This fundraiser will support Sierra State Parks Foundation's mission to preserve our local state parks for future generations alive.

Note: Bets must be made 10 days before the first snow event. In an event of a tie, the tie breaker will be determined by the Foundation reaching out to the people who made the guess and ask for a time. The time guessed closest to the actual snow event's time will win. The Foundation will be using Weather Underground.
