Family Fun in the Powder & SunLight powder. Tons of sun. Amazing views. Terrain that fits everyone in the family. That's us. Only 12 miles from Wenatchee, the ski area is built into a 2,000 acre basin on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains. We are quite different than most of the other mountains in our area. We are a little higher. A little drier. And quite a bit "sunshinier" (300 days annually, in fact). That means when storms come in, they drop a different kind of snow at Mission Ridge: light, dry powder.
Small Mountain Vibe - Big Mountain Terrain
Mission Ridge has more than 36 designated runs spread over 2,000 spectacular acres of trails, chutes, screamers and bowls, with a thrilling 2,250 foot vertical drop. Arriving two weeks after a storm? No problem. Mission Ridge has some amazing backcountry that is about as easy to access as you'll find. If you plan on heading out to these areas, be sure to check in with the ski patrol and Know Before You Go!
