Went to Mission Ridge for the first time ever last Saturday. NICE area! Hadn't had any fresh for a while, but snow was still in great shape (although some hard sections here and there). Overall I'd say it's an excellent place, especially if you like well groomed cruising. Would LOVE to check it out on a powder day to test some of the more advanced runs. Don't know I'd recommend visiting often due to a perceived lack of variety, however it definitely warrants an annual visit (or two!).
