Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort is the ultimate snow-lovers paradise. From special experiences like twilight snowshoe treks to themed ski days to après-ski gatherings, everyday is a celebration of mountain culture that’s uniquely Mission Ridge.

Positioned on the east side of the Cascade Crest, Mission Ridge receives 200 inches of snowfall annually. This unique location just 20 minutes from downtown Wenatchee means they offer some of the driest and fluffiest powder in the Pacific Northwest. With a plethora of restaurants, wineries, and breweries there’s an après scene that goes beyond the parking lot.

With more than 70 designated runs spread over 2,000 spectacular acres of trails, chutes, and bowls, and a 2,250-foot vertical drop (the second longest vertical drop Night Skiing operation in North America!), Mission Ridge is a small mountain town vibe with big mountain skiing and riding. You can expect immaculately groomed runs, light dry powder, summit-to-base snowmaking, and tons of sun.

With night skiing offered Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights through the end of February from 4-9 pm, Mission Ridge provides a unique night experience capped off by an epic sunset view behind Mt. Rainier.

If you're a rider looking to test your tricks and flips, check out the 100LAPS terrain park. It’s a 2-acre park and the only dedicated rope tow serviced terrain park in the Pacific Northwest with a wide variety of features for every level.

Scavenger Hunt on the Mountain

At the top of the cat track that leads to Mission Ridge’s famed Bomber Bowl run is a piece of history from the World War II era: part of a wing from a B-24 Liberator bomber. Skiers and boarders pass by and rub it before heading down the hill, to show respect and welcome more snow.

The Mission Ridge Yeti is an 11-foot-tall sculpture at the top of the ski resort made by three Wenatchee artists. Constructed with steel tubing and covered with a thick layer of rusted chains. In September of 2019, the 1500–2000-pound monster was hauled up next to chair 2 and attached to a base just in time for the first snow of the season.

Don’t miss the igloo at Midway Lodge! This giant igloo offers a respite including ice-cold beverages, a Yeti carved into the wall that's perfect for pictures, and frosty lounging benches.
