With light powder, amazing views, and terrain to fit every snow enthusiast, Resort is one of the top ski resorts in the state. Only 12 miles from Wenatchee, the ski area is built into a 2. 000-acre basin on the Eastern side of the Cascade Mountains.  A little higher, a little drier, and quite a bit sunshinier than the other mountains in our area, Mission Ridge is never short on light, dry powder.
