It feels great to get chair 2 spinning and ski laps off the Summit. The new snow has done wonders and the views from the chair are incredible. Poor visibility on the upper mountain persists, but it clears up about the middle of Tumwater 2. For your safety and the safety of others, please remember to ski in control at all times and respect all posted slow signs.
With 13” of new snow in the past week and tremendous contributions from the Mission Ridge Snowmaking, Grooming, and Mountain Operations crews, we are excited to announce that Chair 2 will open today! We are raring to get out there and ski top to bottom laps on some of the best snow the PNW has to offer. The forecast looks nice, with cool temperatures and light winds at the summit. A persistent cloud layer has settled in on the upper mountain, which may make for poor visibility until it clears. It's going to be another great day at the Ridge!
A 20 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 26. Light and variable wind.
Terrain will be limited to Sunspot and Tumwater accessed by Chair 2 and Mimi, Pika Peak and the Lil' Bomber Terrain Park accessed from Chair 1 and the Pika Peak rope tow.
Additional terrain will open as conditions permit.
