With drier, colder and essentially better powder here than the Cascade Concrete at other Washington ski areas, Mission Ridge is a worthwhile visit. The down-to-earth resort offers an impressive 2,000 ac of terrain, most of which is best suited for intermediates and advanced skiers and snowboarders. The resort is also known for its family-friendliness and after a fun day of skiing, nearby Wenatchee provides affordable lodging and dining.

I ski at lots of resorts around Washington. By far the best resort to ski for any level. The resort is like one big family with huge ties in the community.

Mission Ridge is the perfect place to take the family. There are runs for every level of skier and cool things to see like the WWII bomber wreckage on one run. The views from the top of the surrounding mountains are breathtaking. We love this place!... More

The best skiing in the PNW?? I think so! The snow is light and fluffy, rarely concrete. The instruction here is top-notch. The people here practically invented proper snowmaking.

It was my last stop on a grand Northwest tour in May, 2017. Grand view of the Columbia River desert way below; awesome rock cliffs; inexpensive lodging and restaurants near Wenatchee in... More
Very Good!4 / 5Oct 18, 2017
Great little resort with a surprisingly large amount of varied terrain. Being on the east side of the Cascades, powder quality here is great as well, none of the typical West Coast slush you might be used to.
