A sizable snow storm descended on Dodge Ridge last week, pushing the Tuolumne County ski resort a little closer toward opening.
This past week, Dodge Ridge received 24 inches of new snowfall at the summit, 6 inches at the base, and over 12 inches at mid-mountain during the Thanksgiving week.
There’s more good news to come for skiing and snowboarding. The winter storms are lining up and Dodge Ridge is optimistic about making an opening day announcement soon. Get updates on conditions on the DodgeRidge.com Snow Report page or call the 2-hour Snowphone line at (209) 536-5300.
The recent snowfall has been excellent for ground freezing and base=building conditions. The next round of snowfall is set to arrive midweek with a multi-day series of storms. In addition, forecasts are indicating the potential for continued snowfall for the first part of December.
Dodge Ridge relies 100 percent on natural snow and traditionally opens each winter season in mid-December.
