Getting Here

Dodge Ridge is by far the closest snow to Bay Area & Central Valley locations!

Apple Maps (navigation software on iphones) is not supplying correct information regarding Highway 108.  Highway 108 appears as closed when searching for directions to Dodge Ridge, but the restricted portion of Highway 108 is east of Dodge Ridge so the actual closure does not affect your drive here.  In order to alleviate this situation users must report the misinformation to Apple, and numerous reports must be placed in order to bring about change.  If you’d like to help, please take a look at these instructions on how to report the issue to Apple.

Apple / iPhone Map App Reporting Error

We are aware of a current error with Apple Maps that shows Highway 108 as closed prior to the Dodge Ridge turnoff. You are actually able to travel along Highway 108 unimpeded until the turn off at Pinecrest Lake Road, which connects to Dodge Ridge Road.

Please help us in correcting this error. When using the Apple Maps app if you could please:

  • Hit the link on the bottom right of the app and choose “Report a Problem”.
  • Select “My problem isn’t listed”
  • Copy and paste this text: “Your app is indicating that Highway 108 is closed at an incorrect location. It is true that Sonora Pass (Hwy 108) does close for the winter months, but the closure does not occur until much further up Highway 108, east of Pinecrest Lake. Please amend to properly communicate accurate directions along highway 108 to locations such as Dodge Ridge Ski Resort.”

We appreciate you taking the time to report this issue on behalf of all Dodge Ridge skiers and riders who rely on Apple Maps for navigation.
