Im actually surprised how positive the criticism for dodge ridge is from people who claim to be tahoe frequenters. More likely those who come up for the weekend, but as someone who grew up in tahoe i can honestly say dodge is a resort that is not up to par with how a "resort", i use that term lightly, should be. Dodge has one thing, location. That is the sole reason people even bother coming. The management really needs to get their priorities right to get better riders to come to their resort. One of the things that drives me absolutely nuts is their situation when it comes to lifts. They do not have a single express lift, and on a three day weekend for example lines will be up to a half hour long. For example, chair 7. However i do like their parks, unless youre in a hiking mood youre not going to get to ride much of it without enjoying some long lift rides. Express lifts to the top should be dodge's first priority but they decided to wait until 2012. Great idea.. Being 18, im not too familiar with dodges family riendly atmosphere so i cant have a say on that one. However, i have personally seen how up tight and at times anal the dodge employees can be. Basically if youre someone used to the better of resorts, you better be a patient person if you hope to enjoy dodge ridge.
