Dodge Ridge will reopen the mountain for the season on Friday, March 2. Wednesday evening will kick off a significant storm forecast to deliver three-plus feet of new snow by Friday evening. This is in addition to the seven or more inches that Dodge Ridge received earlier this week. With this significant snowfall, Dodge Ridge will have a majority of terrain open with multiple chairlifts scheduled to operate. Lifts are scheduled to operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As always, visitors are reminded to ski and ride with care and always ski and ride with a buddy and keep your buddy in view.

“We are excited to open and get back to skiing and riding. It’s been a long wait and we are looking forward to welcoming our employees, guests, and the community back to the mountain,” said Jenni Smith, General Manager. “Opening day is always a fun time, and to open on a powder day with great conditions is a terrific way to celebrate and we expect to open 85 percent of our skiable terrain.”
