Chair 2 Project Update

A big question on a lot of people’s minds is “when is the new Chair 2 going to open?” The answer we really want to give you is: "tomorrow". The reality is, there are still a few weeks of work remaining. Every day we are getting closer and the finish line is now in sight! Our crew is dedicated, strong, on top of every last detail, and kicking butt on this project. We are extremely proud of them all and soon you will see why! The updated completion goal for Chair 2 is January 15th. This target is based on the remaining steps in the project being completed without delays and is subject to change due to many factors. Going forward, we will update this timeline on a weekly basis to help keep everyone informed as we approach the grand opening of this chairlift. We know everyone is excited to experience this beautiful new lift and acknowledge that the completion of Chair 2 has an impact on many people’s plans. We remain absolutely committed to delivering an exceptional new lift and experience to Mission Ridge guests that will be a benefit to our community for many, many years to come. We have not, and will not, sacrifice quality for expediency in this effort and look forward to welcoming guests aboard the Wenatchee Express in 2021. Thank you all for the support, kind words, and being the Mission Ridge community we love to serve.

Power Outage Update

We are currently experiencing a power outage on the mountain and further down the Squilchuck Valley to Wenatchee. The current PUD estimate for power restoration is 12:00 pm. At this time we would suggest holding off from heading up to the mountain until we can confirm power has been restored. Any guests that do come up to the mountain are asked to stay in their cars. There is no access to our facilities at this time. We will update again at 8 am or as soon as we have more information.

Single-day tickets for the season will be sold but guests are asked to purchase online, in advance of the day they want to ski, as ticket availability may be limited during peak weekends and holidays.

On The Way Up: Episode 9

The weather is changing, but that isn't slowing down our team of dedicated workers. In Episode 9 of On The Way Up, we check in with our Vehicle Shop Manager, Taylor Everett. We stop by Midway to take a look at the progress there, and we go inside the new building for a quick tour of the inside, where the chairs will rest nightly. We go back up to the top terminal to check in on the progress.  Last but certainly not least, we meet three more members of the team, helping turn this dream into a reality.
