We have had the opportunity to visit Dodge Ridge Ski Area a few times. They are our closest Ski Area, just a short drive up the mountains. Not only did my five year old cousin learn to ski there, but so did my Grandmother. Dodge Ride is fun for the whole family. They offer lessons, rentals, a bar, and a restaurant just to name a few. Not to mention, Dodge Ridge has some great events that they promote. Just tonight, I visited their Urban Ski Rail Jam, which was packed. They had great opportunities to win, and were packed!
