We are excited to announce that we plan to replace Chair 2 (The Liberator) prior to the start of the 2019-2020 season pending approval from the U.S. Forest Service and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Pending final approvals, the current Chair 2 will be removed and upgraded to a Doppelmayr high-speed, detachable quad chairlift with bubbles. The newly purchased chair is coming from Europe and is a significant improvement for Mission Ridge skiers. The costs and limitations associated with maintaining the Liberator required us to take a new approach, so we began a search and found an ideal replacement. We feel fortunate to have this opportunity.
When approved, this investment will offer consistency of operations and a much more comfortable ride up the mountain. The new lift will come with all new electronic systems and controls which will serve Mission well for many years into the future.
