The application for The Mission Ridge Expansion ( ) has been officially submitted to Chelan County. The county is accepting public comments until October 19th.  The video above details the expansion proposed. Below are key points that Mission Ridge has highlighted about this project:

  • The existing Mission Ridge Ski and Board Report has been a part of the Wenatchee Valley Community for over 50 years.  The Mission Ridge Expansion will provide new recreational opportunities for local and visiting outdoor enthusiasts that the current resort is unable to offer due to site limitations. This includes:
    • Improved access and terrain for beginning skiers
    • Nordic skiing and snowshoe trails
    • Overnight accommodations including a lodge and up to 873 new condominiums, townhomes, duplexes, and single family detached homes
    • Non-skiing activities to engage the whole family, such as hiking and biking trails
    • Commercial uses such as shops, restaurants, and entertainment for the entire family
  • Of the 502 acres, 72% will be left as open space; reports have been provided to the county to show that any adverse impacts to the environment are adequately mitigated.
  • The Mission Ridge Expansion Master Plan Resort meets all the general requirements as outlined in Chelan County Code 11.89.040 for a Master Planned Resort.

    I teach skiing on the west side and I, and other instructors like me have always encouraged our students (especially those looking for a family friendly destination) to ski Mission Ridge. The new expansion will, without doubt increase the encouragement we give our students to utilize Mission on a daily or weekend basis. My only disappointment is likely to be that my hotel cost may go up – because I love to ski Mission too!
