Full review

Well, I totally get that an expert skier will be extremely bored with Dodge. The runs are intermediate at best, although there are a couple of challenging runs. The worst problem they have is access to the good runs. The lack of direct chairs is so frustrating it drives me crazy. If you want a good bump run, you get about 5 minutes then you are on a flat groomed the rest and then a very long ride back up and at times 2 chairs to get to the good part!
I agree that the location is great (we own a cabin here and I Love this area) but truly they need to rethink how to get experts up the mountain without long chairs to no where. I have skied for years and everywhere in Ca. and most of Utah so I certainly know how a mountain should be accessed. This is not it.
That being said, if you ski on weekdays, you will at least get in lots of runs as there is never a crowd. WE only ski here because of our cabin. But TAHOE is nuts so what can you do?
