Senior Winter Challenge and Festival
Looking for a little extra fun at Dodge Ridge in February?
Check out the 2nd Annual Senior Winter Challenge and Festival! It’s fun for the whole family and proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity of Tuolumne County and their Parrots Ferry Housing Village in Columbia.
Open to men and woman of all skill levels ages 50 years and older, the Senior Winter Challenge includes GS Races, Slalom and Dual Slalom events for skiers, snowboarders and telemarkers, along with Nordic events and an All Mountain Challenge.

For those who are not competing, there will be several events and festivities including an Artshow, Brewfest, Food Sampling, Live Music, Wine Tasting, Evening Mixers, as well as activities for kids like Arts & Crafts, Face Painting, Jugglers, and Story Telling. There will also be a Banquet Dinner on Saturday night, followed by a Fireworks Display.
If you want to spend time on the slopes, don’t worry; the challenge won’t hog all the snow. Dodge Ridge has 832 skiable acres, 62 runs and 1,600 vertical feet that you can take advantage of during the Senior Winter Challenge and Festival.
