As the sun pushes back the clouds, the adventure begins at Mission Ridge, in the heart of Washington State where the jagged peaks of the Cascade Range meet the high rugged desert of Eastern Washington. Operating on 2,000 acres and offering 2,250 vertical feet and the highest base area in the state the parking lot is a short 12 miles drive south of Wenatchee. A volcanic past has created a ridge where – 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. Experience the difference – the sunshine, the powder, the food and the fun – the memories last a lifetime.
