Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort
Ranked #5 of 33 things to do in Wenatchee

Attraction details
Owner description: Mission Ridge is in the heart of Washington State where the jagged peaks of the Cascade Range meet the high rugged desert of eastern Washington. A volcanic past has created a ridge where snowcapped peaks shimmer on one side and the Columbia River rolls majestically through eastern Washington on the other. But don’t let the view distract you, Mission Ridge has over 2000 acres to explore. Carve tree lined groomers, float through wide open bowls, wiggle through glades or scream down narrow chutes. Now throw in tons of sunshine, heaps of dry snow, and reams of velvety corduroy and you have Washington’s most distinctive winter playground. Make us your Mission this season.

Close to Seattle, no lines, no vaping teenagers (yes, plenty of teenagers...but so far very courteous), super friendly mountain staff/"hosts", unbelievable great deal "Family Adventure" pass ($99 for one day for up to 8 people!!! found at SkiMart), reciprocal with Summit @ Snoqualmie (though hard to find info on blackout dates), pretty good lodge food on the restaurant side (didn't queue up for the self service side)...and, wait for it....the most spectacular views at the top of chair 2. In one panoramic, you can see Mt Hood, Mt Baker, Mt Rainer, Mt Stewart....(i've probably missed one).

Only downside, not many great overnight options. Some ok motels in town and a handful of "cabins" on the mountain road up that can get pricey. Suggestion, make friends with someone who lives in town!

We were there Christmas week & had a great time. The staff took great care of our family & we enjoyed the lodge for lunch. Thanks for a great family vacation.

Love this place with is smallish style and user-friendly operators. Always helpful with reasonable lift prices and good student discounts. Wish the wind didn't blow so much!

With Mission Ridge being voted the best Ski & Snow Board Resort in the Pacific Northwest comes as no surprise. People from all over the nation come to Wenatchee to ski Mission Ridge. Close by in the Wenatchee Valley are many Hotel / Motel Rooms available. You can drive to Wenatchee or take The Mission Ridge Ski Shuttle from Seattle - Tacoma International Airport and you can even fly into Pangborn Field. Compared to the expensive resorts Mission Ridge is very reasonable.It's easy to fly into Pangborn Field from places like California, Texas and all other states. And there are many charter companies that will jet you directly to Wenatchee's Pangborn Field.
