Chair 2 Project Update

The certification inspection for the Wenatchee Express is now complete. The last 3 days were spent reviewing all aspects of the chairlift with Washington State and US Forest Service inspectors. We now have only a few checklist items to complete prior to receiving the certification from the state. The crew has been hard at work today wrapping up these final tasks and finishing touches will continue tomorrow. We look forward to one final update coming soon! As soon as we know with certainty of when the Wenatchee Express will open we will communicate that date. This announcement may come quick and at a moment's notice.

Chair 2 Project Update

Final inspections for the Wenatchee Express certification got underway yesterday, 2/12 despite the below zero temperatures. Load testing, a significant component of the inspection, requires riders' weight to be simulated by cardboard boxes filled with a bag of water on each chair. Needless to say working with hundreds of gallons of water per chair in below zero temps is not an enviable task. The load test was completed successfully along with numerous other aspects of the inspection. The final inspection for the Wenatchee Express continues this weekend. There cannot be an opening date until after the certification of the chair. As soon as we know with certainty when the Wenatchee Express will open we will communicate that date. This announcement may come quick and at a moment's notice.

Chair 2 Project Update

Closer every day. We are so very close. Yesterday, Friday the 5th, all carriers were loaded on the Wenatchee Express for the very first time. It was a truly awesome sight, stopping both snowboarders and skiers as well as employees for a moment to take in the beauty of our new chair. For so many who have worked so long and hard on this project, as well as those who have waited in great anticipation since the end of last season, it was an emotional moment. While the timeline for this project has stretched on longer than anyone would have preferred, this is a huge project and will be a tremendous improvement for our passholders and guests. This is not just a chairlift. This is an investment in the Mission Ridge community that will be enjoyed for a long, long time Load testing and final inspections are scheduled for Friday the 12th. While things are subject to change, we are in really good shape right now. Between now and the certification of the lift, we will be loading carriers and running the chair while  testing all of the systems in advance of inspections. There cannot be an opening date until after load testing and the certification of the chair. As soon as we know with certainty when the Wenatchee Express will open we will communicate that date. This announcement may come quick and at a moment's notice. We know everyone is very excited for that announcement. Thank you all for your support and patience as we look forward to soon loading the Wenatchee Express for the first time.

On The Way Up: Episode 16

Up, up, and away! In Episode 16 of On The Way Up, Mission Ridge owner Larry Scrivanich talks about what this chair means to him, our valley, and what's to come for the project. We take a look at the initial testing the chair has undergone the last week, and Delcie expresses the emotions so many of us feel to see Chair 2, The Wenatchee Express, running fully loaded with carriers for the first time. We wrap up the episode with a peak of what it takes to put the loading conveyor together and tested, and Delcie takes a lap down from the top and touches the wing for a bit of good luck!
