Pinecrest, CA — The snowy weather has brought a gift to skiers as Dodge Ridge Ski Area officials have announced its opening on Wednesday, December 17.

“The latest storm brought over 14 inches of snow on the summit of the mountain and 10 inches at the base,” says Resort Spokesperson Sean Waterman, “When we saw the weather forecast with a storm rolling in we decided to open up.”
