Mission Ridge Upgrading Chair 2 for 2019-20 Season
— Wenatchee WA
Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort announced that it plans to replace it’s Chair 2 (The Liberator) prior to the start of the 2019-2020 season pending approval from the U.S. Forest Service and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, according to General Manager Josh Jorgensen.
“Pending final approvals, the current Chair 2 will be removed and upgraded to a Doppelmayr high-speed, detachable quad chairlift with bubbles,” Jorgensen said. The newly purchased chair is coming from Europe and is a significant improvement for Mission Ridge skiers. “The costs and limitations associated with maintaining the Liberator required us to take a new approach, so we began a search and found an ideal replacement.”
Larry Scrivanich, owner of Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort added, “We feel fortunate to have this opportunity.”
“If approved, this investment will offer consistency of operations and a much more comfortable ride up the mountain. The new lift will come with all new electronic systems and controls which will serve Mission well for many years into the future,” Jorgensen said.
