Mission Ridge returning to 7-Day-A-Week Schedule for 2019/2020 Season

For the first time in almost 20 years Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort is returning to a 7 day-a-week operating schedule for the 2019-2020 winter season. “We are very excited to be offering additional opportunities for guests to come up and enjoy the mountain,” said Mission Ridge Marketing Director Tony Hickok. “We really see this as a tremendous benefit to local skiers and riders in the Wenatchee Valley who have work schedules with mid-week days off and those with flexible work schedules. I also think we can expect to see an uptick of people calling in sick with the “powder flu” next season,” Hickok joked.

Mission Ridge plans to be open daily from roughly mid-December to the end of February with a varying schedule early season and in March/April. To check out the planned operations calendar for the 2019-2020 season visit the resort’s website at www.missionridge.com.

Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort also announced the starting date of their 2019-2020 season pass sale last week. Season Passes for next season will go on sale Thursday, March 7th at 6am online at missionridge.com and at the Season Pass office on the mountain. With the move to 7 day-a-week operations new Mid-Week Passes will also be available for the first time starting March 7th. Mid-Week Passes allow access to ski and ride Monday through Friday during the season as well as late-season weekends. Some blackout dates will apply.
