Video From Ski Resort Explains Why Wind Holds Are Necessary

Uphill Policy 2021/22 | Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort

Wind holds might be every skier and snowboarder’s least favorite thing, but they are absolutely necessary for the safety of guests.

Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort in Wenatchee, WA captured the video below over the weekend. It shows one of the carriers on Chair 2 blowing violently in the wind.

The thread of Tweets explains what happened that morning.

Thankfully nobody was on the lift when this incident occurred, and good on Mission Ridge for being so transparent as to why Chair 2 was on wind hold.

Communication between a ski area and guests like this is so valuable, and I really hope to see more of it in the future.

Bravo Mission Ridge!
