Lake Tahoe Skiing: Soda Springs
Soda Springs, celebrating its 68th year, attracted early day adventurers outfitted in laced leather boots with wooden skis. Soda Springs was a popular destination accessed primarily by train. Much has changed since those early days. Chairlifts have replaced tows and travel is convenient on Interstate 80. Modernization hasn’t affected tradition, however.
The welcoming small resort spirit and relaxed atmosphere of days past can still be discovered at Soda Springs, located just off I-80 at Donner Summit. Exit Soda Springs and follow the signs. Sacramento is just 80 miles, San Francisco 170 miles, and Reno just 48 miles.
Kids X Park: New for skiing and snowboarding. Great for kids who like bumps and little jumps.
Tubing Flumes: Take the Little Dipper and keep the little children smiling from ear to ear. But for the thrill-seekers, the Tube Express will knock your snow boots off. It’s a kick for any age.
