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!

The ticket price is reasonable, and they have some easy lifts. They even have a conveyor belt and a rope for first timers. Also, this resort is close to the Bay Area, making it possible for the Bay Area residents to make a day trip....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)
