Every Saturday night through February 20, Mission Ridge reopens under the stars and the lights of the resort for night skiing from 4-8 p.m. A one-time $99 pass allows skiers of all skill levels to ski any on of the nine days the slopes are open. Rental equipment ranges in price, depending on age, from $16-$35. For non-skiers, a tubing tow rope is also available. Mission Ridge sits less than half an hour outside of Wenatchee, providing multiple lodging, restaurant and shopping opportunities. The city includes two theaters, a performing arts center, Pybus Public Market and a walking trail looping along the Columbia River.
