Wenatchee, WA — Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort will open for its 50th anniversary season with limited operations this Friday December 2, 2016. The start of December looks to bring cold temps and increased chances of natural snowfall and with that increased terrain openings as well.

The mountain will open with Chairs 1, 2 and the Pika Peak rope tow in operation. The ski school will be open, as well as the Chair 5 Pub and Ka Wham Cafe with early season menus. The #100LAPS Terrain Park will not be open this weekend and has a planned opening date of Dec. 10 conditions permitting.

Current forecasts call for cloudy skies and chances of snow throughout the weekend.

Lift ticket prices will be discounted to $39 for ages 25-69 and $29 for ages 10-24 to reflect the limited opening of chairlifts and terrain. Lift tickets for ages 9 & under will be $5 and $15 for ages 70+.

Firefighter and Emergency Personnel Appreciation: To say thank you for their service, Mission Ridge will be honoring Firefighters, EMTs, and Law Enforcement professionals by providing free skiing and riding from opening day through the third weekend in December. We welcome both active duty emergency responders and 2015 summer seasonal personnel to enjoy time on the mountain.
