Mission Ridge

Something like that.  You have to look at their schedule carefully to know what's up.  During holidays they run daily, but in between they cut anywhere from 2 to 4 weekdays.  MR is supposed to have really nice carving terrain, but I've never ridden there.

I've never been- the photos looked nice. I didn't realize they floated the days off. That would be hard to plan around, eh?

The Ridge Rocks!  Best carving in WA state.  Lots of sunshine and a really interesting layout.  PSIA NW moved their headquarters to Wenatchee from Seattle, they were probably done with skiing in the rain.

Went there once and rode the WROD when there was NO snow anywhere else. Interesting mountain, and I could see it would be a good carve mountain.

Mission's not bad, when they get enough snow.  I prefer White Pass for better lift capacity and a little bit steeper groomers, but Mission has some long cruisers and is really nice on a quiet day.

I ride there regularly. It has great carving runs, and other great terrain as well. Lift lines are small to non-existent but on a weekend or holiday you will want to get there before 0830, as the parking lot can fill up, even though the runs are uncrowded. 

I believe the schedule this season is offering more midweek days open.  Check the web site to be sure.

It's been snowing a bunch lately and coverage is great

If you come, send me a note and I will show you around if I'm there.

Thanks.  Good to hear from somebody who goes there.  Ever since I started snowboarding at Stevens Pass back around '08, I've heard good things about the terrain at Mission.  It must be sunnier than the typical WA state resort?  The limited schedule is the only thing that bugs me, but if it isn't so crowded even on weekends then that seems hopeful.

It's kind of amazing because it's so close to Stevens Pass, but a completely different weather pattern is involved.  Much like Mt. bachelor in Oregon there is over 300 days of sunshine in the area with drier snow.
