A few words on the Snow at Mission Ridge Ski Area

Mission Ridge has no detail snow data, but we accept the published average of 170 inches snowfall, as it is in the rain shadow of the Cascade mountains.

Accumulation and Preservation

Mission Ridge's early season accumulation should be slower than average for western areas due to modest snowfall. Mission Ridge is predominantly north exposed for good snow preservation. Mission Ridge is usually best skied in February and March.
