Dodge Ridge

  Dodge Ridge is a great place for families and beginner skiers! You can't lose your kids like you can at the bigger resorts. They have a great all-day ski school program. They recently put in a new lodge, now all they need is some snow-making equipment. Says Bonnie.

I've been skiing Dodge since the early seventies. It seems to get better each year. The crowd that hangs there is warm and mixes well. It's fun to yell single just to see who turns up. See
    ya on the hill. Says John S.:.

Dodge Ridge is a pretty small resort compared to other ones nearby but it's got some really really good runs to get your adrenaline pumping. I prefer this place to many other larger resorts nearby.
Says Tom.

If you like spending all your time on the world's slowest chairs, Dodge is the place! I took my family(Dodge says its family friendly),$75 for a terrible lunch, bathrooms are a pig sty, kids took a lesson, stood around waiting for an overcrowded belt lift. What a rip off! Take your family somewhere else! Says Jay Jonstone Thu, 4 Feb 2010.
