Tell El Sendero Your Backcountry Thoughts
March 5, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Hosted by El Sendero Backcountry Ski & Snowshoe Club
Location: Wenatchee Valley Museum
Date: Thursday March 5th 5:30-7:30pm
Hello fellow backcountry user!
You’ve probably heard of the proposed development pertaining to the Mission Ridge Ski Area. It is a big project with a new road traversing into a village area, 873 homes and condo units, a 50 room hotel, and new lifts giving easier access to some of the surrounding backcountry. This private development will impact how we all access and experience our public lands in the Greater Mission Ridge Backcountry which includes Mission Peak, Stemilt Basin, Lake Clara, and Squilchuck Park environs.
Here is a link to the proposed phasing map which will give you an idea of the scale of the project.
El Sendero Backcountry Ski and Snowshoe Club advocates for quiet wintertime backcountry users, but has not yet taken a position on the proposed development. We are now wanting to talk to backcountry enthusiasts so that we can understand and appropriately advocate for your values, desires and concerns.
Whether you hike, bike, snowshoe, backcountry ski, cross-country ski or snowboard in the greater Mission Ridge backcountry, we want to hear from you.
Please join us for a moderated community conversation at the Wenatchee Valley Museum on Thursday, March 5 (5:30 to 7:30 pm).
