Mission Ridge debuted a brand-new detachable-quad that’s the first bubble lift in the entire Pacific Northwest Region yesterday, 2/17/21.

The new lift offers high-end comfort for skiers and riders to protect them from the elements on the coldest of days.

It’s a significant investment for the independently-owned ski area.

The Wenatchee Express replaces The Liberator Express that had been running at the resort since it was purchased from Winter Park in 2005.

It had a slew of technical issues over the years. It was originally installed at Winter Park in 1985.

The new Wenatchee Express was a necessity for Mission Ridge, and the future of this Washington ski area gem.
