Considered a true local’s mountain, this family-owned ski destination is the antithesis of the sprawling, corporatized resort. Boasting some of the most extreme snowfall on the continent, it once set the record for the most snowfall in one season: 1,140 inches, or 95 feet of snow. Great backcountry skiing, cross-country trails, and a deeply ingrained snowboarding culture continue to attract die-hards.
From the 6,820-foot elevation at Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort, the peaks of Mount Adams and Mount Rainier are visible to the southeast. The view is the first of several spectacular vistas at the resort, where 36 trails span across 2,000 acres and sunshine and dry snow occur regularly. Trails in the Cascade Mountains range from double-black-diamond plunges at the top of the mountain to easy green runs for beginners. The B.24 Terrain Park and JIBerator Rope Tow Park feature freestyle terrain for skiing and boarding, along with rails, boxes, and jumps. Experienced slope-conquerors offer lessons for fledgling mountaineers, and the resort brims with shopping, dining, and lodging options nearby for long-term visitors. Wineries and breweries are also nearby, and Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort is 19 kilometres from Wentachee and 56 kilometres from Leavenworth.
Since 1964, the instructors at Ski Masters have been showing snowboarders how to shred down the mountain with finesse. Kids as young as three can strap on a snowboard with their parents and enjoy a weekend parent-and-child class, while adults can enroll in 7-class sessions to learn to snowboard, advance their skills, or figure out how to look like a guy in a movie who knows how to snowboard. A variety of other lessons for children, teens, and adults are also available.
