Saturday 11/18 Forecast

Posted on November 18th, 2017


Lets. Go. Skiing! We welcome you back to your winter home and the start of the 2017/18 season up at Mission Ridge. It is exciting to be opening early for the second time in four seasons and on or before Thanksgiving weekend for the third time in the last four years. It has been a great start to the month of November with good natural snowfall and some awesome snowmaking productivity as well. These conditions have come together to allow for limited early opening today and we want to emphasize that even though things are off to a good start, early season conditions do exist out there. Make sure, as always, to ski and ride with care and easy style your way back into winter condition.

See you on the hill,
