I've loved this ski hill every since moving to Washington, and the high-speed lift that was added several years ago made this my favorite in the state, even if its far from home (Bellevue). No, its not as big as the hills in the passes, but the various choices of 1.5 mile cruising runs from the top provide plenty of variety, and the snow is so much better than areas to the west (drier and thus more easily kept in good condition by the hill managers). Groomers could be a bit more careful about leaving long divots when doing their packing in places, but for the most part this is as well-managed a ski hill as you'll find anywhere. Lastly, its location guarantees you won't put up with crowds like those areas within 90 minutes of Seattle, so you'll get way more vertical in for your lift ticket buck. The lodge is a bit small for a resort this size, but the small snack bar up on the hill is a good option if you're like me and only stop for lunch as a nutritional necessity when the skiing is as good as it frequently is at Mission Ridge!.
