About Dodge Ridge Wintersports Area

Dodge Ridge was founded on the ideals of family in 1950. The resort has been owned and operated by 2 families: first the Purdy Family and then the Helm Family since 1976. 

As a family-owned snowsports area, we take pride in being a leader in mountain recreation, focusing on programs geared to families, promoting opportunities to learn to ski or ride and delivering excellent guest services.

Wintertime the ski resort offers 862 skiable acres, 1,600 vertical feet, 12 lifts, 67 runs, 3 dining venues, a large Snowsports School and Retail and Sport Shop. 

Summertime we switch to operating eleven popular campgrounds along Sonora Pass and at Pinecrest Lake. We also open the North Fork Bistro at the resort for summer mountain side dining. There are plans to expand our summer operations in the near future as well. 

Our dedicated management team is committed to providing the best mountain experience possible for all our guests and a top-notch employment experience for our staff. We hope to hear from you!
