The local ski season kicks off Friday at Mission Ridge. The resort's marketing director, Jordan Lindstrom says crews are working feverishly as they prepare for Friday. He says chairs 1,2 and 3 will be open. Last weekend's snowfall gave the Ridge an excellent overall early season snowpack and coverage area. In previous years the ski hill opened with just chairs 1 and 2 because of limited early season coverage.
Lindstrom says runs will operate from 9a.m. to 4p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday until seven day operations begin December 14th.
