Diversity Across the Curriculum (April 2021)

Mission Ridge’s Chair 2 opens for skiers, snowboarders

WENATCHEE — Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort opened the Wenatchee Express to skiers and snowboarders on Feb. 17.

The new high-speed, four-person chairlift — more than a mile long with a vertical rise of more than 1,500 feet — 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 installation included new tower locations and a new maintenance shop/chair parking garage connected to the bottom terminal.

Removal of the old chairlift began last May, in the midst of the pandemic.

Mission Ridge Marketing Director Tony Hickok said it’s been amazing to see everyone’s reaction and hear all the positive feedback.
