Snowboarder on Lower Tumwater

12/25 Conditions Report - Open 11am-4pm

Midday Report-

Presents are unwrapped, hot-coco is drank and now its time to hit the slopes! Groomers are skiing amazing this morning with 1″ of new snow on top… Do you feel that? Could that be a more snow heading in our direction? Fingers crossed for an even more white Christmas with 3″ of new snow forecasted today. So grab your candy canes and a mug of eggnog and we’ll see you on the mountain.

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 their hard work, they deserve the tip of all your hats.

The best Snowmakers around were busy building that base,

And the Yeti at the summit was trying to make calls to outer space.

Suddenly over the radio arose such a clatter,

That this snow reporter set down his coffee, to see what twas the matter.

And what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a beautiful new day on the rise and fresh snow falling from the atmosphere!

The forecast is calling for one to three inches,

Enough to grow the heart of the staunchest snow grinches.

The groomed runs will be buffed out for you in advance,

But that fresh corduroy might get covered because Cowboy Doug, the groomer, saw Prop Man doing a midnight snow dance.

While there is yet only a trace new snow on the ground,

The Lift Mechanics And Ops will have all chairs a runnin’ for you to make many a round.

We hope that your stockings were stuffed, your presents stacked like a fountain,

And look forward to soon seeing you on the mountain.

Happy Holidays to you and yours from everyone here at Mission Ridge!
