Depending on where you live in the bay area, I am sure this is the closest place to get some snow and skiiing. Its a great little ski place and perhaps the best for kids to learn and get their first experience with skiing. They have some WONDERFUL WONDERFUL ski instructors. Place is nice, small, and you feel welcome. Not... 更多
Compared to Lake Tahoe, I liked this place more because it is very friendly for learners. It has good cafeteria with variety of choices. Take a Ski lesson and keep practicing in slopes without a lot of crowd. If there is any one not doing any snow sports they can just sit inside warm area of cafe, enjoy views and... 更多
A hidden gem. Have been in the Bay Area for almost 20 years and have never heard of this area. Found it, like many people, by a google search for "nearest ski to san francisco." Dodge is a quick zip from the Peninsula, 2.5-3 hours PLUS a ski bus service taking you from the no-snow town of Sonora to Dodge... 更多
I've been skiing at Dodge since I was a kid in high school. I loved it back then and love it even more now. Dodge Ridge isn't a huge resort, but it have improved and there's a lot more terrain now than when I was in high school. The prices are reasonable compared to what you'd get in many of... 更多
It was much less crowded than the crowded Lake Tahoe resorts.Our kids took semi-private lessons for two days and they were much more personalized and by the end of the lessons they were skiing down the slopes.
Great place for to take lessons. Skiing is limited to 5 or so lifts but plenty of runs. Don't have to fight the Tahoe traffic and just several hours away from SF Bay Area. Well maintained resort. Cost a fraction of Tahoe skiing and so much closer.
We spent the day skiing here yesterday (during a nice little storm that brought 9 more inches to the slopes!). It was our first time skiing in the West (we are New Englanders recently transplanted to California). We read the reviews, and hoped for the best as it was a bit of a trek out there from the Monterey area... 更多
It's small and easy to get in/out. The service is excellent and the people are just so nice. Not a lot of fancy amenities, no fine dining or ski in/ski out hotels. But, if you don't mind driving up to the slopes each morning, and want someplace that is not crowded, Dodge Ridge is just great!
