A few words on the Snow at Dodge Ridge

Dodge Ridge has no detail snow data, but we estimate 350 inches snowfall, comparable to nearby and similarly situated Bear Valley. Dodge Ridge is forested to its 8,200 foot summit, so powder skiing can be good even on severe storm days. Average snow density of 12% is not the blower of the Rockies but easily managed on modern fat rockered skis.

Accumulation and Preservation

Early season coverage is eased by Dodge Ridge's overall intermediate pitch as well as the high snowfall. However, California droughts can be extreme, so even the snowiest areas are less than ¼ open at Christmas in the worst 15% of seasons. Dodge Ridge is about half north-facing but elevation range of 6,600 - 8,200 feet is low for California, so overall snow preservation is below average.
