“Great Family Resort”

Soda Springs Mountain Ski Resort
Reviewed December 28, 2011

Soda Springs is a reasonably priced, well-managed resort that caters to families with children or beginner skiers/snowboards. Lots to do: tubing skiing/snowboarding/planet kids. Definitely check it out if you are looking for a resort in Tahoe.

The tubing is great for ages 2-7 if they are just getting comfortable with the snow. This is our second time at Soda Springs and the first time we just went tubing. My boys are now age 7 and 10 and they want something faster. We rented skis and carried our skis up about 30 feet and glided down until we were comfortable with it. The boys haven't skied before, and Mom and Dad haven't skied in 20 years. We then bought lift tickets and slowly made our way down the small hill. It is the best place I have found in Tahoe to learn how to ski . They do offer lessons, but I remembered a few things from 20 years ago and it worked for us without lessons. To stop on skis, you put your ski tips together (without touching) and the back of the skis out , the shape of a piece of pizza. Then you zig-zag down the hill to keep from going to fast. Don't point your skis straight down the hill and you will be fine. Take your time, it took us about 20 minutes to get down the first time. The great thing is, everyone one the hill is in the same boat so you feel very comfortable falling and stopping along the way.
