8:40 am Update - We anticipate a delayed opening on all Chairs this morning. We will update as soon as possible but are hopeful for a 9:30 am opening. Additionally, all parking lots will be full in approximately 20 minutes. If you are not passed Squilchuk Market in Wenatchee it is unlikely there will be open spots. Spots will likely start opening up around noon.
We received 14" of new snow overnight and 22" in the past 24 hours. We know many of you are excited to come skiing, and for good reason. That said, it is very cold with high winds at the summit. The wind chill at the summit is currently -25 degrees. Make sure to dress very warm with absolutely no exposed skin. Anticipate Chair 2 starting the day on hold or remaining closed for the day due to extremely cold temps, high winds, and wind chill.
With the current Health Department guidance for social distancing and avoiding close proximity in groups, Mission Ridge has reduced seating in the lodges and will have reduced bus capacity in the event that overflow parking is needed.
Please, Please Carpool - we really want to make sure everyone can fit in our parking lots and that we don’t turn folks away.
Consider packing a lunch or buying food to-go and eating in your car.
Dress warmly as the temperatures are forecast to be very chilly with a breeze.
Consider coming for the afternoon - the skiing will be great all day.
