Older ski resort. Parking can be a hassle so plan accordingly. Nice variety of runs for all skiing abilities. Not a fancy Tahoe resort - a sweet, small, mountain resort doing a good job providing space for a fun outdoor activity!

Very friendly ski and snowboarding resort. Spring skiing was lovely. No crowds. Not all chairs lifts were opened but there were enough to make it worthwhile. Scene is beautiful.

Perfect mountain for skiing with young kids. It is a very beginner to intermediate mountain. The restaurant is ok. Over priced but too be expected. Will definitely be back!

Living in the bay, sometimes it's great to have one day ski trip and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort seems to fit the bill. We got discounted tickets from our local Lucky Supermarket for $10 less and we woke up early 6:30AM and drove 3 hours...More

Pleasantly surprised. We like the smaller low key ski resorts with our kids and this place definitely fit the bill. Even on a busy President's Day weekend, it was not too over crowded. Our daughter's (11,8) took a two hour private lesson with Ski Instructor...More

Great place to ski as a family. Reasonable rates for equipment and lifts. Not too crowded unless you need equipment- in that case arrive early or get fitted the night before, which we did and saved a ton of time. Will be back!

Like the terrain of this ski resort. It was not very challenging, but it was a lot of fun. the only drawback is the chain requirement for the last three miles to the ski resort. Caught out of guard and have to deal out some...More

Excellent resort for families. They have a great kid's club program. Reasonably priced private lessons. Very friendly and experienced instructors. Area to drop-off your skis/snowboards before parking. Closest to bay area (just under 3 hours drive). A place for all levels and no gondola. Friendly...More

Normally Dodgeridge is best from mid Jan to mid April. But this year is bad. Even Tahoe is dry right now. Pretty risky to ski or snowboard on pre-season conditions (like now)
