Mission Ridge opens Wenatchee Express

The new Wenatchee Express chairlift is over a mile long with a vertical rise of over 1500 feet. The installation included new tower locations, new top and bottom terminal buildings, and a new maintenance shop/chair parking garage connected to the bottom terminal.

WENATCHEE — Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort opened the Wenatchee Express chairlift for the first time Wednesday. The new high-speed, four-person chairlift replaces the old Liberator Express chairlift in the same position but features chairs with plexiglass bubble covers, a shorter ride time, and loading/unloading from inside the new top and bottom terminal buildings. The chairlift is unique in the Pacific Northwest and will be a one-of-a-kind experience for snowboarders and skiers in the region. “This chairlift is going to be transformational for Mission Ridge, our Passholders, and our guests,” said Mission Ridge owner Larry Scrivanich. “It's really going to be the centerpiece of The Ridge.”
