Soda Springs Mountain Resort is Tahoe's best snow park for kids. Its a ski resort with 42 trails and 5 lifts on 468 skiable acres. The terrain is fairly diverse, with the most advanced courses on the top of the mountain. Soda Springs is great for kids and families, with a number of extra attractions built especially for them: a tubing area, a mini snowmobile area, and a "Kid’s Place" complete with tube carousel. Soda Springs has small terrain features, grooming, snowmaking, ski and snowboard lessons, and equipment rental. A less intimidating setting than other high paced resorts, Soda Springs offers a low-key and casual atmosphere where families will find they can just enjoy the small things in life. Soda Springs, celebrating it's 70th year, attracted early day adventurers outfitted in laced leather boots with wooden skis. Soda Springs was a popular destination accessed primarily by train.
