12/29/20 Project Update
Good progress has been made this past week on the Lower Terminal and the lift operator house and at the Top Terminal. Although you can’t see it from the webcam, we’ve been busy working every day. This week you will be able to see the roofing being installed on the lower terminal and we will continue putting the finishing touches on the top terminal. We are completing everything we can in advance of the haul rope installation which is scheduled for January 6th to 11th. Getting this done and passing all inspections by the 15th is still possible but will definitely be a challenge and a tight timeline. We are putting everything we have into the effort and will continue to keep you updated next week. Look for episode 13 of On The Way Up to come out soon highlighted by views of the nearly complete Top Terminal.

12/21/20 Project Update
A big question on a lot of people’s minds is “when is the new Chair 2 going to open?”
The answer we really want to give you is: "tomorrow". The reality is, there are still a few weeks of work remaining. Every day we are getting closer and the finish line is now in sight! Our crew is dedicated, strong, on top of every last detail, and kicking butt on this project. We are extremely proud of them all and soon you will see why!
The updated completion goal for Chair 2 is January 15th. This target is based on the remaining steps in the project being completed without delays and is subject to change due to many factors. Going forward, we will update this timeline on a weekly basis to help keep everyone informed as we approach the grand opening of this chairlift.
We know everyone is excited to experience this beautiful new lift and acknowledge that the completion of Chair 2 has an impact on many people’s plans. We remain absolutely committed to delivering an exceptional new lift and experience to Mission Ridge guests that will be a benefit to our community for many, many years to come. We have not, and will not, sacrifice quality for expediency in this effort and look forward to welcoming guests aboard the Wenatchee Express in 2021. Thank you all for the support, kind words, and being the Mission Ridge community we love to serve.Mountain Updates
