Monday 12/26 Forecast

The slopes are in terrific shape today.  The cooler temps continue  allowing the corduroy to set up very nicely!  The snow is responsive and dry living up to our reputation of light and fluffy goods.  The conditions today are chilly and awesome.  Ensure you leave no skin exposed.  There is a winter storm forecast predicting 3-5 inches of snow overnight and possibly 1 to 3 inches more throughout the day tomorrow!  Let it snow!

Christmas Day Forecast

‘Twas 6am in the morning, when all through Mission Ridge’s Lodge like house Not a creature was stirring, not even a Pika (which is like a really fat mouse). The beer mugs were placed, on the bar shelves with care In hopes that fresh ale, soon would be there. The A.M. Groomers were nestled, all snug in their Snow Cats, For their hard work they deserve at least the tip of all your hats. And the Snow Makers are more than up for the task Each one undoubtedly donned in a warm winter cap, For the Ridge was just about to wake from its off hours nap. When over the radio arose such a clatter, That this snow reporter set down his coffee mug, to see what twas the matter. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a beautiful sun on the rise and bluebird skies drawing near. We’ll have comfy temps throughout the day, and a high near 31, And little to no wind and plenty of sun. The groomed runs have been fitted with fresh corduroy pants, And Cowboy Doug the groomer said he even saw Prop Man doing a midnight snow dance. While this morning there may be no new snow on the ground, The Lift Mechanics And Ops will have all chairs a runnin’ for you to make many a round. And we hope that your stockings were stuffed to the brim and we know that your tummy will surely get it’s its fill, And look forward to soon seeing you on the hill. Happy Holidays to you and yours from everyone here at Mission Ridge!

Wednesday 12/21/2016 Forecast

After making a few hot laps on chair 3, I’d have to say nothing beats a calm, blue-bird day on the mountain! That’s right folks, the wild weather of the past couple of days has cleared to make way for some awesome conditions out there today! We've received 6” of new snow in the last 24hrs with a total of 10" in the last 48hrs. The warmer temps have made our typically light and fluffy snow a little heavier, creating some awesome coverage and a good top up to our base. There are some fun powder pockets to be had and the groomers are skiing and riding beautifully as well, so go on and enjoy your mid-week adventure! See you out there, -Skier Amy

Tuesday 12/20 Forecast

12:00pm Update I just took several runs down Chair 3.  Excellent shredding and skiing out there today!  Slope conditions are impressive with plenty of untouched lines, firm but sweet groomers, and pockets of the good stuff.  The warmer temps from this morning are chilling out and continue to decrease.  The 6” of snow dropped overnight lays like a nice thick blanket which is uncharacteristic of the usual type of snow we receive this time of year but welcoming all the same!  The more the better!  Chair 4 is open and resumed normal operations.  Chair 2 is still on Standby and will resume normal operations should weather conditions permit.  Stay tuned for more updates.  Let’s Ride!

1:00pm Update The winds are still perpetuating out of the West.  Chair 2 is closed for the day and Chair 4 is currently on wind hold.  Chair 4 will re-open should the winds desist into the afternoon.  Meanwhile Chair 1 and Chair 3 as well as Pika Peak and LibTech 100LAPS Park are rocking.  Conditions on the slopes are variable pendulating from packed powder to pockets of fluffy fresh snow.  Visibility is great with bluebird skies in the mix.  Please stay tuned for updates as conditions continue to change. 10:45am Update: Persistent strong winds directly out of the West have Chairs 2 and 4 currently on wind hold. These chairs will re-open if the wind calms and conditions permit. The forecast is for winds to maintain or increase this afternoon, but we always keep our fingers crossed. Please stay tuned for updates as conditions continue to change. We’ve received 2” of snow since 5am.  The conditions are currently snowing with light to moderate breeze at the base and blustery winds at The Summit predicted to taper off throughout the day.  Chairs 3 and 4 will be the sweet spots today with pockets of the good stuff.  We are planning on operating all four chairs as weather permits currently Chair 2 is on wind hold.  The fresh snow over corduroy will provide excellent responsive turns with plenty of floaters on the sides.  Off piste conditions continue to improve and the snow just keeps falling.  Dress warm today and be ready for some epic shredding! Let’s Ride! Matt

Sunday 12/18 Forecast Update

I just came in from several runs down the Summit.  The conditions are awesome!  With the increase in temperature the snow has softened up allowing deep buttery turns.  The weather is calm and inviting, a really nice change from the current cold streak!  The bluebird skies overhead mixed with the intense views of the surrounding Cascade Range and the Wenatchee Valley below paint a backdrop Picasso couldn’t capture in his prime.  Lib Technologies is representing on the Mountain today with tons of boards to demo as well as skis.  What are you waiting for?   Let’s Ride! Matt The stage is set for another great day.  The weather looks promising with chance of snow Monday and Tuesday, so keep on doing your snow dancing!  Today expect tight corduroy, crisp turns, and plenty of good times and remember the Holiday Season Schedule is in effect and we are open all week long!   Today’s forecast calling for mostly cloudy skies and a 10 percent chance of snow after 4pm, with a high near 16 degrees.  West wind 6 to 8 mph. Let’s Ride! -Matt
