Soda Springs Ski Resort Review

Soda Springs Ski Resort, or Soda Springs Winter Resort, is located in the heart of the Northern Sierra on Donner summit. It is 10 miles west of Truckee in Soda Springs, California.

Soda Springs Ski Resort is a fun place for the entire family. Skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels will have fun here. The 16 runs are about 30% beginner, 50% intermediate and 20% advanced. With a vertical drop of only 652 feet, covering only 200 acres, this is not a place for advanced skiers seeking a thrill. But it is packed full of green and blue runs just perfect for the less than expert skiers. This is the place for grown ups to ski with their kids and have a great time doing it. And when you tire of skiing there is so much more to do. An entire fun filled day could be spent here even if you never touch a ski.

Snowboarders should be able to have a fun time at Soda Springs Winter Resort no matter what your skill level is. For the little ones the Soda's "Kids X" Park has small jumps and banks while the "Triple T" has larger jumps and a funbox.

Tubing is another fun attraction at Soda Springs, known as California's largest snow tubing resort. Two tows take you up to four flumes of different levels of excitement. The Little Dipper is just right for young kids, and the timid, while the Tube Express is guaranteed to thrill. Other activities at the mountain include snowshoeing and sledding.

Another unique feature offered at this ski resort are the mini snowmobiles for kids 6 to 12. These are snowmobiles made just for the little ones that go around a circular track. The snowmobiles are just part of the kids fun found at Planet Kids. Here you will find learn to ski lessons, moving carpets, mini tubing, volcano snow play and tube carousels.

At the base lodge you will find a cafeteria, a rental and repair shop, ski and snowboard instructions and an outdoor sundeck. The accommodations are nothing like you will find at the larger, more expensive, ski resorts. But this place is what it is, it's a fun day in the snow for all ages.
