Finding the goods off Windy Ridge.

Nearing the end of Snowmageddon 2018 on Snoqualmie Pass, we decided to hit the “Closed” I-90 to get some lift served skiing at Mission Ridge. On Valentines Day (Mon, 2/14/19), we got the sweetest treat – waist deep, champagne powder and the lifts were spinning at Summit Central. However, the following day, we received 31 inches in 24 hours, which shut us down completely. This included power, too! Thank goodness, Dru Bru has a generator and the community gathered to compare notes and use the wifi.

 

Allison and myself rolled out at 7pm ish, and got on the completely quiet interstate 90. We didn’t see one single vehicle of any kind, until Cle Elum. Then only seeing 3 from there to the junction of Hwy 97 and Hwy 2. Wild! The following morning we hit the second of the two day ski demo, Mission Ridge was holding for the WSSRA. As you will see from the video below we had great weather and the end result was a kick-ass time! Thanks Mission Ridge (one of the 7 Gems that make up our Cascade Crown of ski areas).
