My kids enjoyed visiting Planet Kids at Soda Springs very much. Getting tickets is easy, but the line could get long. Parking is convenient. Slope is relatively safe, except you have to watch out for other kids. It can get crowded towards the afternoon. Downside:...More

If you’re looking to go tubing or skiing with the family and don’t want to deal with the bigger resorts, then Soda Springs is the best place for you. Amazing tube hill and ski runs without having to wait in a crowded lift line.

This is a fun place. We like the people here and have a good time with our daughter. She likes the Planet Kids and we enjoy trading off ski'ing. Lunch and beers at the main lodge is pretty good.
