Map & Facts

As the longest running ski resort in California, Soda Springs Mountain Resort is the best place to explore the magic of winter in Tahoe. Secluded in the picturesque pines and conveniently located directly off of Interstate-80, the welcoming resort spirit and relaxed atmosphere is perfect for families new to snow. In fact, Soda Springs offers Planet Kids, a dedicated snowplay area designed for children ages 8 & under. Although, big kids can play too! Planet Kids is best described as a snow playground featuring tubing carousals, snow-tubing lanes, ski/snowboard specific learning areas, snow volcanoes to climb and more. If you’re looking to speed things up a bit, Tube Town is Tahoe’s premier snow tubing area with up to 20 runs and a 400ft. surface lift.
