MISSION RIDGE LIFT LINE AND WAVE START SCHEDULE
Updated 4/18/2009 

  • Check the time to be in the lift line.  Mission Ridge is a 20-30 minute drive from Wenatchee.  Your race number is colored.  Use that color and the name of your division to find your wave in the chart below.
  • The race starts at the top of Mission Ridge at 9:30 a.m.  By using the chart below, you can determine the actual start time of your division.  Squilchuck Road will close to uphill traffic at 9:30 a.m.  All of your team members except the boaters need to be above the Methow/Squilchuck intersection, where the road is closed, before 9:30 a.m.
  • At 9:30 a.m., Squilchuck and Mission Ridge Roads will close to uphill traffic.  That lane becomes the race course for the runners and bikers.  During the race, cars may come down those roads, but cannot enter Squilchuck State Park via the access road.  Therefore, it is recommended that each team arrange transportation for the skiers and the runner, and separate transportation for the biker.  The skiers can come down together after finishing their leg of the race.  The runner can use the biker’s car to come down after finishing the run.  The biker will need transportation from Monitor to return to the start of the portage in Walla Walla Point Park.  Contact the race office to sign up for the Shuttle Bus from the Finish back up to Mission Ridge after the race.  Email sheila@r2r.org.
  • Eco Boomers race is cancelled.
