Mission Ridge is kicking off the season with a preview weekend, November 22 and 23 from 9:00am-4:00pm each day. Although Mother Nature is yet to make her major contribution, our snowmaking capabilities have enabled us to open Chair 1. We are so excited to get on the snow and make some turns. Mission Ridge is proud to be the first resort in Washington to open this season and will be opening this early for the fourth year in a row!We will be running a limited menu this weekend in the Chair 5 Pub and Ka-Wham Café with $2 Badger Mountain Brewery beers and $1 off all other draft beers. Ski school/lessons, rental/retail and childcare will not be available this weekend but will be coming soon!Park Event: "Stairway to Shreddin'", our season opener session, will be highlighted by a hike park in the Midway area. Features will include tubes, boxes, rails and a new street-style rail. The event will award prizes for best tricks at random times throughout the day. Joey McGuire will be on hand serving up "Revo dogs." Come joins us for your first park session of the season. Registration at event site. Sponsored by Coal, Union, DWD and Revolution Snow and Skate.Tickets are can be purchased at the Mission Ridge ticket window this weekend, $20 for adults, $10 for children and seniors.A huge thank you goes out to our snowmaking crew for working around the clock in the bitter cold to make this all possible. They have been on point at utilizing what the conditions are giving us and making an awesome base to be able to open and ski on. If you see them, give them a hug, a high-five or buy them a beer to say thanks. They are the super heroes of snow and we would not be anywhere close to opening this weekend if not for them.
