Soda Springs is one of America's original ski resorts, established in 1931. In fact, it’s the oldest operating ski area in California. It has become a cost-saving alternative to the larger Lake Tahoe resorts. It is the first resort located off Interstate 80 in California at the Donner Summit. The resort features two lifts, a tubing carpet and 2 moving carpets. The resort is a favorite among beginners and intermediates.
