MISSION RIDGE SKI VIDEOS
~3 YEARS, 8 MONTHS

The week after returning from Snowbird (Utah), we had our first opportunity to ski off-reins with Todd at Mission Ridge (MR). We skied on chair 1 on Saturday (searching for pink flamingo birds). We skied on chair 1 and chair 4 on Sunday. Success!! This was the last weekend of skiing this season at MR.
