2/26/2021 Conditions Report

10 AM Update: What an epic morning! The sun came out, the winds have been calm, and the powder is dry. The groomers were smooth and silky and the off-piste was off the charts. Look for the steeper off-piste areas to get more variable as the day goes on but the mountain should be riding/skiing good all day and night with the lower temps and forecasted snow for later. POW Town population you! We received 6" of that beautiful Mission Ridge powder overnight and we are looking forward to an excellent day on the mountain. Expect PM groomers to have a nice blanket of snow and AM groomers to be soft and silky as the snow has been coming down all night long. Off-piste [non-groomed] runs will be nice and deep from top to bottom. We are expecting winds throughout the day between 20 and 30 mph with gusts in the upper 40s. Click in to your fat planks and have a great day floating around the mountain! All Chairs as well as the Pika Peak rope tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm. Chair 1, 4 and the Pika Peak rope tow are scheduled for night skiing from 4pm-9pm. The 100Laps rope tow will be closed to start the day and we hope to have it open at noon. Please make sure to dress appropriately for the conditions and remember that we are asking that everyone use their car as their base camp as there is limited seating inside and capacity restrictions are in place for all inside spaces.

2/25/2021 Conditions Report

1:30 PM Update: Mother Nature has turned up the dial on the winds up top, so the Wenatchee Express will be closed for the rest of the day. 10 AM Update: A storm is blowing in, we've seen heavy snow this morning, with sunny breaks, and wind gusts, and it's only 10. The groomers are riding nice this morning and I found some surprisingly deep powder pockets off-piste. Look for off-piste to be variable as the wind has blown around the new snow. Snow incoming! A possible 2-4 inches throughout the day. A light dusting received early this morning will put a nice soft buttery layer on groomed runs around the mountain. Off-piste [non-groomed] runs remain variable around the mountain, some areas have a nice wind deposit of snow making for excellent soft turns, expect to see some scoured areas as well. It is always a good idea to get a feel for the snow before charging into your line. All Chairs as well as the Pika Peak rope tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm. Chair 1, 4 and the Pika Peak rope tow are scheduled for night skiing from 4pm-9pm. The 100Laps rope tow will be closed for the day. The 100Laps Terrain Park will be closed to start the day as crews are working to dig out features from the last storm, the park will open as soon as work is complete. Please make sure to dress appropriately for the conditions and remember that we are asking that everyone use their car as their base camp as there is limited seating inside and capacity restrictions are in place for all inside spaces.

Expect groomed runs to be silky smooth to start the morning. Off-piste [non-groomed] runs will be variable around the mountain due to the high winds from the last couple days. Many areas were filled in with wind deposited snow and scoured others. My 4 o'clock run from the top of the Wenatchee Express yesterday (2/23) was full of nice soft turns and I expect more of the same to start the morning.  All Chairs as well as the Pika Peak rope tow are scheduled for operation from 9 am to 4 pm. Chair 1, 4 and the Pika Peak rope tow are scheduled for night skiing from 4pm-9pm. The 100Laps rope tow will be closed for the day.

Message About 2/23 Operations

Over the last two days we’ve seen some of the wilder weather that winter has to throw our way. High winds may have put a temporary damper on fun times out on the mountain, but the good news is temperatures have stayed cool and it's snowing instead of raining. The current winter storm warning extends into tomorrow and we are unfortunately seeing more gusty winds forecast over the next 24-36 hours. We will always do everything we can to operate if conditions permit, but the weather may have an impact on operations again tomorrow, Tuesday 2/23. High winds are currently forecast to remain persistent and then begin to build over the course of the day Tuesday starting around 7am. We will update as soon and as often as we can as we know more about how things are looking for getting back up on The Ridge. Tuesday Forecast A 50 percent chance of snow, mainly before 4pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 24. Wind chill values as low as -2. Very windy, with a west wind around 38 mph, with gusts as high as 60 mph. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

OPERATIONS CANCELED TODAY 2/22/2021

A thorough review of multiple forecasts in addition to current observations has led us to make the decision to cancel operations for today, Monday, February 22nd due to high winds. It is never easy to make the call to close but the weather has the ultimate say in these matters. Keep your fingers crossed for cooler temps and calmer winds to prevail and we look forward to seeing you on the mountain soon! If you have a pre-purchased ticket for today you will be automatically refunded.

2/21/2021 Conditions Report

2:15 PM Update: Mother Nature has eased up on the winds up top and we have opened The Wenatchee Express (Chair 2). 10 AM Update: Chair 2 is still on wind hold, it will open when conditions permit. The snow has picked up and there are some nice pockets of powder on the groomed runs and off-piste (non-groomed) was variable with pockets of powder to firmer spots. Look for the groomers to become more variable as the day goes on and the wind blows around deposits. It's supposed to warm up today, but it's currently gusty and a little chilly towards the top of chair 3, so make sure to bring some layers and be prepared. The wind is now forecasted to remain strong at the top of the mountain, so we've pulled the chairs off the line for now of Chair 2.   The good news is there is a storm blowing in and we appear to be right in its sights, and hopefully it will deliver some new snow for us throughout the week. We are seeing high winds at the summit with gusts consistently in the 70s, so Chair 2 will likely start the day on hold and we will open the chair when conditions permit. The temps will rise today, so look for the groomers to be softer as the day goes on. 2/21/21 - All Full Day (9 am to 4 pm) tickets are SOLD OUT for Sunday, 2/21. Limited Late Arrival (12pm-4pm) tickets are still available.

Once overflow parking goes into effect, we will ask drivers to drop off passengers at a designated location in the front section of our main parking lot between Chair 1 and Chair 4. Once passengers are dropped off, drivers will park as directed by our Parking Staff in the auxiliary parking lots and be shuttled back up to the resort. Parking in the auxiliary lots and using the shuttle service is optional, but once the main Base Area lots are full, this will be the only option available other than returning to the mountain on a different day. Shuttle capacity will be limited with socially distanced seating enforced. Shuttle drivers and passengers will be required to wear a face-covering at all times without exception.
