Soda Springs Winter Resort

Welcome to Soda Springs. In 1935, Soda Springs was one of the just a few established ski resorts in the West attracting early day adventurers outfitted in laced leather boots with wooden skis. Much has changed since those early days. Chairlifts have replaced tows, slopes are groomed, and travel is easy via Interstate 80’s direct route through the mountains. Modernization hasn’t effected the tradition, however. The welcoming small resort spirit and relaxed atmosphere of days past can still be discovered at Soda Springs.

Soda Springs is just 1 mile off I-80 at Donner Summit, exit at Soda Springs. The small resort atmosphere makes taking the family to the mountains a pleasure. You can ski and snowboard, snow tube, try out the mini snowmobiles for kids ages 6-12, or just sit on the deck and enjoy the view.
