A California based ski resort has begun the transition to new ownership after 45 years of being a family-run business.
Dodge Ridge Ski Resort in Tuolumne has welcomed its new owners. Invision Capital and Mountain High Resort. They will take over from Frank and Sally Helm who operated the family-owned ski resort for the last four decades.
The Helm family purchased Dodge Ridge in 1976. During the first two decades, the Helms made several improvements by making key lift installations and completing a £4.5 million expansion in 2007. The Helms has also received approval for a lift-accessed mountain biking plan, which is ready for development under the new ownership.
The new ownership will assume control of all facilities which includes 862 skiable acres, with 1,600 vertical feet, 68 trails, and 12 lifts. It also includes the operation of the Pinecrest, Clark Fork, and Brightman Flat USFS campground complexes. All 2021/22 Dodge Ridge season pass holders will continue to enjoy unlimited access to all lifts and skiable acres every day of the season.
Dodge Ridge will now become a partner resort of the Powder Alliance, which will provide free skiing and riding perks at 15 other partner resorts throughout the western United States, Canada and Japan.
