The Mission Ridge Christmas Story

‘Twas 6 in the morning, when all through Mission Ridge’s Lodge like house Not a creature was stirring, not even a Pika (which is essentially 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 Groomers were nestled, all snug in their Snow Cats, For all their hard work they deserve the tip of all your hats. And the Snow Makers are always 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 fresh snow on the ground and a wonderful day drawing near. We’ll have cool temps throughout the day, and a high near 18, The winds will be light and the skiing dream. 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. This morning there is also 2 new inches of snow on the ground, And you know the Lift Mechanics And Ops will have chairs 1,2 and 3 a runnin’ for you to make many a round. 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!

Christmas Eve Forecast

Happy Christmas Eve! We are looking forward to another great day on the mountain. Yesterday's clear skies and cold continued into last night keeping temps low. Surface conditions should be much like they were yesterday with good groomed runs and variable off-piste snow and coverage. Clouds have rolled in this morning and with the clouds should come some new snow just in time for Christmas. Remember we are open from 9am to 2pm today and 11am to 4pm tomorrow for Christmas.

Christmas Eve Preview

It was a beautiful, cold, fun day of skiing and riding out on the mountain. Clear skies and cold temps kept the snow in great shape across much of the mountain. Variable conditions off-piste and in areas with recent snowmaking could be found but it is awesome to see so much new terrain opening up! The forecast might have an early stocking stuffer in it for us with the possibility of a couple inches of new snow by the end of the day tomorrow. Remember that in order to allow our staff to spend a little more time with their families this holiday season we will again run modified Christmas Eve and Christmas Day hours. We will be open Christmas Eve 12/24 from 9am-2pm and Christmas Day from 11am-4pm. Lift tickets will be discounted $10 both days as well. We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all up on the mountain!

Saturday 12/23 Forecast

Clear skies, cold temps, and fun skiing and riding. That will pretty much sum up the day! Winds should be light today but you will want to make sure to dress for success as temps will hover around the upper teens today. Those cold temps have groomed surfaces looking great and we are excited to have all chairs in operation for the first time this season. It's the official third day of winter, two days before Christmas, and there's only one place you should be!

Saturday Preview

We are at that time of the year where every day seems to be even better than the last. The second official day of winter saw Chair 3 in operation for the first time this season, over 1" of new snow, and a bunch of people enjoying time out on the mountain. Day 3 of winter looks even more promising with all Chairs in operation as Chair 4 will open for the first time as well. A cold front has moved in which should keep surface conditions in great shape, allow for even more snowmaking, and provide a sunny day on the slopes tomorrow. See you on the hill, -Tony

Friday 12/22 Forecast

Thank goodness it’s Friday indeed today! We have Chair 3 opening for the first time this season, a bunch of new terrain to explore that opened during the day yesterday, and snow likely in the forecast. Yesterday saw some extremely nice conditions on the groomed runs with variable powder conditions off-piste and you can expect more of the same today. The MRSM crew was back at it last night making as much snow possible to add into the mix. Christmas is just around the corner but not before we get to celebrate another awesome weekend of skiing and riding at The Ridge. See you on the hill, -Tony

Friday Preview - Chair 3 In The Mix

Thanks to everyone who came up today to share another awesome day on the mountain. Groomed runs were superb in the morning and surface conditions stayed really nice throughout the day. The new snow on Monday has mixed in well to provide a top notch experience on designated groomed runs. A bunch of additional terrain opened today as well with a run like Maggi, Alah, Lemolo and a number of other open for the first time this season. We also have a special surprise in store for tomorrow with the first day with Chair 3 in operation this season! There will be limited grooming off of Chair 3 so ski with extra caution, remember it is still early in the season with low coverage in many areas.

Kai's 7 day Forecast

There is a moderate likelihood of a weak system coming through the area on Friday. Despite the low water content, the cold temperatures could result in an inch or two of new snow. Following this disturbance, expect highs in the mid-teens and lows around 10 through the weekend. Temperatures should begin to warm up on Sunday in anticipation of a small disturbance and a chance of snow for Christmas Day. Expect daytime temperatures in the mid-20’s through midweek.

Thursday 12/21 Forecast

If you weren’t able to make it yesterday, you’re in luck, because today you get a do-over. Mother Nature has been doing her job, as we wait on the next storm, keeping it clear and cool to preserve the snow quality. Patrol was able to open some new runs yesterday and will be opening some new terrain today as conditions permit. The untouched snow is a bit heavy and challenging due to wind loading and settling, but it will still be fun to get some soft turns again today. If that’s not your thing, fresh groomers await! 10am Update - A bunch of new terrain opened today for the first time this year. The skiing is great, but challenging in spots as a result of the various layers, wind affected snow, and hazards just beneath the snow surface. Wind-blown entrance are particularly thin. Remember to ski in control and be extra-cautious off-piste. Also, some snow has blown across the groomed runs in places, so be on your toes and watch out for pockets of fluff.
