Overall

4.1

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.

Awesome place with great variety of terrain. Lots of hidden runs and tree shots. Short hike to off piste areas that's always have great snow. Little to no lines besides the initial line in the morning.... More

A big, powdery mountain ridge high on the "dry" side of the Cascade Range for all types of skiers, with uncrowded slopes and lots on snow way into spring. 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

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.
