Skiing + Boarding Operations
Planned for Friday - Sunday, Dec 2 - 4
Closed Mid-Week, Nov 28 - Dec 1
Following an incredible early season opening weekend this past November 11 - 13, we all got to enjoy the 2nd earliest opening date of the past 4 decades.
Our plan for this week is to open for Skiing + Boarding this Friday - Sunday, December 2 - 4. Trail and lift operations will be updated based on conditions and we're looking forward to a significant winter storm system for Thursday and Saturday night into Sunday this week.
Be aware that early season conditions do exist at this time with variable snow conditions and marked & unmarked obstacle present.
2nd Annual Santa Sunday
Sunday, December 18
It was all about spreading holiday cheer throughout the mountain!
This year we'll be trying to break the century mark with over 100 Santas skiing and boarding throughout the mountain this coming Sunday, December 18, 2022. All Santas will gather at the top of Chair 3 at 11am for this festive photo op, followed by a Santa Caravan video session down the mountain. It's quite a scene to be seen...
More details to come on this event, but please plan to join us for this new holiday tradition at Dodge Ridge on Sunday, December 18, 2022.
New Year's Eve Celebration
Saturday, December 31
We'll be hosting our Annual New Year's Eve Party this year on Saturday, December 31st from 3 - 7pm.
Once the lifts stop turning, the fun continues with a great early evening of apres festivities from 3 - 7pm, including live music (from The Neighborhood Sound), food and drink specials, raffles and giveaways along with a torchlight parade, followed by a firework spectacular to ring in the New Year around 6pm.
We're not going to make it to midnight, but we'd love to spend the first part of your New Year's Celebration with you.
