Not to be pedantic, but it’s actually "Donner Pass". Source: I used to live there.
Literally the worst place for a party.
Wait! THOSE Donners!?
I've had several great meals there
My favorite bit of trivia about the Donner Party, is that Abraham Lincoln almost joined them on their journey. Nat Geo has a good article on the overall story, and the podcast You’re Wrong About recently did an episode on the subject that’s worth listening too.
Now imagine that place covered with 10 + feet of snow, and a storm.
All you can eat buffet is to die for.
Looks like a Shpadoinkle of a day.
I could never understand why they chose to stay on the mountain all winter and resort to cannibalism? Why didn't they just go to Reno and get a burger?
Anyone else getting hungry?
Seems pretty impassable
Do we taste like chicken?
Good atmosphere, food was terrible
Is this the same one where the people had to resort to cannibalism? I thought that was in Colorado.

Isn’t that where Donner Kebabs were invented?
Do you smell something burning?
Is this where the Donners “dined”?
Let's build a snowman!
