Final Day is Sunday

Today was a fun day and a great snapshot of the season. We did not have as much snow as we wanted. The winds were stronger than we would have liked. We had limited terrain and had to make last minute changes to our operations. But despite all of this, we had fun. There was great slalom racing down Tumwater and fresh turns on Maggie. The winds on top were strong, but everyone kept on smiling, skiing, and riding. We had fun because it is great to be up in the mountains playing in the snow. The more snow the better, but any snow is far better than none at all. Mission Ridge is a community of friends, families, and strangers all drawn together by the pursuit of fun that sliding down a snowy slope provides. Tomorrow will be the last day of operations for the 2014/15 Season and the first day of the 2015/16 Season. We want to thank everyone in the Mission Ridge Family for always making the most out of every adventure. It certainly was not the season we had hoped for, but those moments experienced by the individual and those shared with friends, family, and strangers puts a cheezy grin on our faces. Mission Ridge is an amazing place in part because of it's terrain, quality of snow, and proximity to town. But most importantly, it is the most amazing place because of it's people. I'm looking forward to giving it one last go, and sure can't wait to... See you on the hill! -Tony

Operations Update - Saturday Forecast

Due to the Summit elevation wind forecast for Saturday, we are re-locating the 2015 Eigenvector Research NW Cup Finals slalom race to Lower Tumwater. Lower Tumwater will be closed before and dur'ing the races. Skiing and riding will be open on the Boundary Road, Katsuk, B24, Tumwater 3, which will all be groomed. The route down will then follow the Road to Chair 3 and Kiwa back down to Midway and the Bottom of Chair 2. The advantage to this operation change is that if Chair 2 is placed on hold due to wind, we will be able to run Chair 3 and at least still access Kiwa for some skiing and riding while also being able to finish the race. We sincerely appreciate everyones understanding and continued positive attitudes throughout this unique season. We are looking forward to a fun weekend with our Flamingo Days Celebration. Come on up and ski and ride while you still  can. Please see the trail map below for open run highligted in pink.
