Full review

I just got back from skiing Mission RIdge and had a great powder day. They are shut on Tuesday and Wednesday's, so Thursdays are great if there is new snow. Today about 12" of light powder in certain stashes. With a little effort, sometimes some hiking, there are great lines that can be had with freshies. This is a great small mountain that skiis a lot bigger than it's acreage would indicate. I skied last week at Whistler and we hiked the Flute Bowl Ridge and dropped down into the bowl, but I had as good of drops today at Mission. Rarely are there lines. My dream would be to take chair # 4 and chair # 3 to the top of the ridge- but I suppose that would be bad as then with no effort involved , a lot of great lines would be gone quickly. Mission does a great job of maintaining the small amount of snow they get, and generally it is never heavy.
