UPPER MOUNTAIN OPERATIONS SCHEDULED TO RESUME
TUESDAY, MARCH 17 WITH POWDER DAY CONDITIONS!
The weekend winter storm warning is currently in effect and continuing to deliver as the significant snowfall piles up.
As of Sunday, March 15 at 3pm, we’ve now picked up:
- 26” at the summit
- 20” at our base area
- The snowline is currently sitting around the 4,500ft elevation.
The snowfall continues tonight with up to 10” or more expected by Monday morning.
The temperature is forecast to drop for Monday and Tuesday as the winter storms continue with the snowline descending below the 4,000 ft elevation, delivering up to a foot of additional snowfall for the Monday winter storm.
A March Miracle is upon us! We’ll look forward to upper mountain chairlifts turning, beginning this Tuesday, March 17 with Powder Day conditions. We’ll keep you updated as our operational plan develops.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the health and well-being of our community of employees, guests and neighbors is of the utmost importance to all of us at Dodge Ridge.
Our focus is to mitigate risk and concern with a strong focus on social distancing, cleanliness, and good hygiene. These modifications to our operations reflect the recommendations of federal, state and local health officials.
Please visit the Snow Safety Page at DodgeRidge.com for a list of all preventative actions being taken. https://www.dodgeridge.com/mountain-info/snow-safety/
More Winter Snow coming! Call now and reserve your favorite Shadow Ridge Vacation Rentals cabin now and enjoy some Spring snowplay!
Hi all Snowplayers-
After following the weather reports (to the point of obsession) we have been able to decide to remain open!
The good news is that we are expecting up to 2-3 feet of snow over the next week, with cold temperatures!
The unfortunate part is that the main bulk of the system won’t be arriving until Saturday, so the Snowplay conditions will remain “marginal” for Thursday/Friday.
Although still fun- it doesn’t look pretty, you will not want to shoot your next years family Christmas card photo!
If you are planning on coming up this weekend, please remember that chains or 4x4 will probably be required.
So, come on up and practice some “social distancing” in some coronavirus free clean mountain air!
Snow does not last long this time of year, so take advantage of this new snow!!
March Snowplay!! Book a Shadow Ridge Vacation Rentals cabin now for fun in the snow time with the family! 1-800-382-0334 www.shadowridge.com
What a transformation in just 48 short hours!
Could this be the March that we were hoping for?
It’s starting to look that way-
With 6” of new snow, and COLD temperatures, the snowmaking crew was able to lay down a great product.
So this means that Leland Snowplay can be open starting Friday, and hopefully remain open throughout the rest of the snow season!
We are still going to be closed this Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, so that the snowcat crew can manipulate and move the snow for the best tubing conditions!
Thanks to everyone wishing good “snowy” thoughts!!
Check out our new cabin , Sunset Canyon Lodge ! Located right around the corner from Twain Harte Lake up on the ridge so the views down into the valley are amazing and the sunsets are

News From Twain Harte Lake!
Meet our New Snack Shack Tenants, the McClean family!
Twain Harte Lake is such a special place for our family. Being known as “Mr. Bingo” is something I love and look forward to every summer.
After 12 years of grilling burgers and serving millions of curly fries, the hard working team of Tony & Elfi Taylor are moving on to an awesome new venture. They have started “Base Camp Restaraunt & Catering” and will be working with Inner Sanctum Cellars in Columbia.
This summer starts a new chapter for The Snack Shack at Twain Harte Lake as well as my family! As of today, we are the new operators of the Snack Shack! As a Le Cordon Bleu trained Chef, and a family that loves Twain Harte Lake, we are looking forward to bringing you great food, lots of smiles, and of course the best summer of BINGO ever!
Fantastic news for the holidays!
COLD TEMPS BRING TOP TO BOTTOM SNOW!
100% of the mountain is OPEN
Currently the temperature is in the low to mid 30's throughout the mountain. The forecasted cooler temps arrived earlier then expected here at Dodge Ridge and it's currently snowing from the base to the summit with the top of the mountain already picking up over a half an inch in the last hour!
This afternoon and evening, the temperatures will continue to cool off, with snow falling into Saturday morning. The series of storms for tonight to Sunday were forecasted to drop anywhere from 3 - 6”, but with the snow arriving earlier than expected we’ll have to see how much we get from the storms. Be sure to check back for updates throughout the next couple days.

OPENING SOON FOR THE SEASON
Are you ready for the 2019/2020 SNOWPLAY Season to kick off?! We most certainly are!
A Winter Weather Warning has been issued starting this afternoon, which is predicted to bring snow showers to the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada. (mymotherlode.com/news/local/935057/sierra-nevada-winter-storm-warnings-advisories.html)
Will this be enough to open the door at Leland Snowplay? Not yet. But it’s a start and thinks are looking promising. The weather is turning colder, and we are ready to flip the switches on the snow guns and give Mother Nature a hand in blanketing the hill in white!
Finally, preparations are in the works so we are 100% in operation the moment Mother Nature allows. We encourage you to make preparations now for your 2019/2020 SNOWPLAY Adventure! Please take the time to review our posted calendar. Prices, dates of operation, and other useful information can be found at our website at snowplay.com. For answer to our most common questions, we also invite you to visit the following FAQ Page at sites.google.com/prod/view/snowplay-facebook-faq/home. Please, please, please, take the time to visit those sites when planning your trip in order to avoid problems or misunderstandings. Everything you need to know should be there, but we encourage you to message us on Facebook if we missed something.
It won’t be long now. We are looking forward to another great season on the hill with each and every one of you. Hope to see you soon!
We can't wait for winter!!🛷☃️
HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GREAT SUMMER
Despite the hot temperatures this week, for many of you summer is over, as you send the kids back to school, and with Labor Day less than a week away. Soon it will be Autumn... Halloween... Thanksgiving... ... ... Snowplay!
Running a seasonal business means lots of work in the "off season", to not only be ready for the tens-of-thousands of guests we look forward to every year, but to offer an even better product "next year". Over the years that has meant investing in surface lifts, the magic carper, snow making, better inner tubes, remodels to the lodge, better heavy equipment, and continued investment into safety. This year will be no different.
It may seem like a long way out, but we know better, and we will be hard at work until that first snowflake falls. For now, enjoy the last remaining day of the official summer, have a great autumn, and remember to spend at least one of your winter vacation days at Leland Snowplay!
It is a happy Monday morning at Shadow Ridge Vacation Rentals because I just picked up a Dirty Frozen Hot Chocolate from Bean Around The Block ...Yum!! You gotta try it! ☕

LAST DAY OF THE SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT!
After a wild and wonderful season in the snow, the Management of Leland Snowplay has come to the decision that April 21, 2019 will be our final day for the 2018/2019 Snowplay Season!
This is not an easy decision to make. The fact is we are going to end this season with more snow on the hill than we had at any point during our predictable hectic Christmas Break. However, its April; the days are getting very long, the temperatures are climbing, and people’s focus has clearly shifted from snowplay to summer activities. If it were possible to be in operation year-round, we would; but we just can’t complete with the looming promise of boating, swimming, camping, picnics, and summer sports.
The good news is you have 10 more days, and two more weekends, to get up here. You won’t be disappointed. We still have over 6 feet of snow on the hill, and the crowds we had when we had very little snow earlier in the season are virtually non-existent. The weather forecast shows mostly clear and sunny skies, with no major weather systems before we close.
The Management and Staff of Leland Snowplay want to thank everyone who has visited us this season. The snow season started off rather slow, but those February Storms gave so many of you an awesome second half to the season. We hope everyone got their chance to enjoy the snow! If not, we earnestly invite you to make the trip to see us one lasts time this season. THANK YOU!
From rustic to luxurious, our beautiful cabins in the village of Twain Harte can sleep from 2 to 17 people.
