Mission Ridge featured in Macklemore Christmas video


Seattle rapper and songwriter Macklemore has released the video for his new Christmas song and it features Wenatchee’s Mission Ridge Ski and Board resort.

The song “It’s Christmas Time” is Macklemore’s reflection on his Christmases as a kid.

And as a kid he spent a lot of happy days at Mission Ridge, said Tony Hickok, marketing director for the resort.

It was a quick turnaround for the video, as the Mission Ridge footage was shot just over a week ago on Sunday, Dec. 8, Hickok said.

Macklemore’s team brought all their own actors and production crew to the shoot, while the resort staff tried to “respect the process” by keeping it as quiet as possible, Hickok said.

“It’s exciting for Mission Ridge to be involved in a great video, it’s pretty cool, really,” he said.
