Yeti Release Party

Saturday, January 4, 2020

 Share

Join us and the creators and artists behind NCW’s newest mythological art installation for a Wenatchee Valley Chamber hosted ribbon cutting on Saturday, January 4th, 2020. The towering 11ft metal sculpture, known affectionately as “The Yeti” will be officially introduced to the public and “released” to the wild at its new home over by the tower on Katsuk.

The life-size sculpture was created by a team of local artists called Project Yeti, and installed in September 2019.  Adorned with reclaimed metal chain, the installation was designed to gather snow and ice to provide a different caricature upon each viewing.  Some days it may be the mythical Bigfoot, brown and rusty.  Other days it will be the Yeti - gnarled and covered with snow and ice.  “Mission Ridge provides the perfect ‘yeti sighting’ backdrop for the thousands of visitors to the mountain each year” says Project Manager, Kasey Koski. “We hope that it becomes a beloved part of the Mission Ridge experience.”

Project Yeti consists of Kasey Koski, Project Manager; Zeb Postelwait & Thad Brewer, Creative Leads and Oly Mingo, Outreach Coordinator. The list of supporting sponsors includes Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center, Okanogan Wenatchee National Forest, Lemolo Cafe and Deli, North 40 Productions, Wenatchee Sand & Gravel, Wenatchee Valley Scrap & Recycle, Randy’s Towing, American Shoe Shop and Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort. The project also raised several hundred dollars in public crowd funding.

The Ribbon Cutting is open to the public, however a lift ticket is required to access the chair lift. The event will be followed by an informal toast to the Yeti at Midway Lodge.
