Longtime owners of Dodge Ridge Ski Resort in Pinecrest, CA Frank and Sally Helm have decided to retire and have sold the ski area to the owners of Mountain High Resort. The Helm’s have owned and operated Dodge Ridge for 45 years, and were only the 2nd owners of the resort.
Here’s a statement from Sally Helm on the sale:
“The new owners truly appreciate the family-oriented culture that has made this resort special for over 70 years and the existing Dodge Ridge team will continue to deliver the guest-focused culture our visitors have come to expect, Jenni Smith will remain as General Manager leading the team with new President and CEO Karl Kapuscinski. He brings over 30 years of ski area operations experience.”
I feel like Dodge Ridge is one of the resorts you don’t hear too much about, but it still packs a punch. The resorts boasts a decent vertical and ample snowfall for skiers and riders of all ages to enjoy.
