Thanks for a Great Season!

I want to thank you all for making it such a great season here at The Ridge, and what an excellent winter it's been! I'll never forget the roughly 80" of snowfall this February and the consistently great snow conditions we had. The Mission Ridge team hopes you got your fill and have plenty of great memories to reflect on during the long hot days of summer until we’re all back here next fall for 7-day a week operations, to salute the wing, and ski some of the best snow the Northwest has to offer!

It looks like April has another beautiful day in store for day 2 of Flamingo Days and our final day of operations for the 2018/19 season! The sun's expected to be out again, and winds should be calmer, allowing temperatures to rise a bit earlier in the day. Remember to remain cautious of thin, late-season coverage, and enjoy the snow!

It's a sunny, crisp morning at the Ridge. The 2018/19 season is winding to a close, but the fun is not over yet. Come celebrate a great season with one last weekend on the mountain! As always we'll be closing out the season with our retro, tropical-themed scavenger hunt, Flamingo Days! 10:30 am Update: The Annual Flamingo Days celebration is under way! We've had almost every weather condition of the season this morning, from blue skies to full on snow! Due to the variable weather, surface conditions and coverage vary as well.  Reports indicate that just under half of the birds have been found, so plenty more chances to win. The sun is back out and there's nowhere to hide. Happy Hunting!

Spring conditions have shifted towards winter for the annual "Tour de Blues" weekend, with a chance of snow in the forecast today and tomorrow. If the temperatures cooperate, it could be the last opportunity for some fresh turns before we hang it up for the season. So come on up for fresh corduroy in the morning and a chance of snow in the afternoon! 9:45 am Update: April Snow showers bring spring pow days! It's snowing from top to bottom this morning with about an inch of accumulation since 8 am. The snow is creamy and fun and stacking up fast. Continue to be cautious as there is thin coverage in areas due to the prolonged sun these last few weeks.
