Come join the Desert Ski Club as we celebrate and kickoff the New Year at
one of our favorite ski hills: Mission Ridge!!!
Mission Ridge sits in a 2,000 acre basin on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains. Only 12 mi from Wenatchee, it’s close enough to come up for the night, or you can stay and play and celebrate the new year all weekend! Mission is famous for light powder, tons of sun and amazing views! With more than 36 designated runs and lots of terrain in between, you’ll find something to explore regardless of your skill or adventure level! And, to get you back up the 2,250 ft. to the 6,820 summit, Wenatchee Express, a high-speed detachable bubble quad, was completed last season.
The Hampton Lodge (base lodge) has a full restaurant and bar, ski rentals and services, Midway lodge has food & beverage service and restrooms, plus sometimes there are snack shacks open around the mountain.
Arrive in Wenatchee Friday, Dec. 31, 2021. Ski all day, or show up for a fun evening of festivities, kicked off with a meetup at the Coast Hotel. The Desert Ski Club will provide festive bling, and a selection of drinks and appetizers, all arranged on your behalf!
For those who want to make a weekend out of it, return to ski Saturday and Sunday, meeting at the top of the stairs by Chair 1 each morning. Not only will the weekend feature all day skiing… you will have the opportunity to stay late for night skiing Friday and Saturday!
Additional activities will include a Midway meetup midday Friday, and for those who stick around, a dinner meetup Saturday.
For lodging, we recommend the Coast Hotel for its facilities and central location.
Across the street for the discount-minded you will find the Downtown Inn. There are many other options not too far away.
Mission Ridge honors the Indy pass and a Bluewood season pass.
