Firefighter Appreciation

They put their safety on the line to protect ours. Mission Ridge would like to thank and honor all of our Firefighters, EMTs, and Law Enforcement Professionals by providing free skiing and snowboarding from opening day until Sunday, December 17th. We welcome both active-duty emergency responders and 2023 summer seasonal personnel to take a day for themselves to recharge and enjoy the mountain. On Saturday,  December 16th, we will host our annual Firehose Relay dual slalom race and welcome teams of 4 to join.

From now until December 17th, you can add $1 any transaction at Mission Ridge to donate to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. The role of the Wildland Firefighter Foundation is to honor past, present, and future wildland firefighters by helping maintain and grow the national monument established for those who have lost their lives, operate a financial fund providing assistance to the families of fallen and wildland firefighters and to injured firefighters, and partner with private and interagency organizations to educate the public about wildland fires and promote excellence and safety in firefighting.

All Firefighters, EMTs, and Law Enforcement professionals need only bring some type of proof of employment like an ID card, letterhead, or pay stub to receive their complimentary lift ticket.
