Wilf Woods | 1953 dreams of Mission Ridge

A new movie about our Mission Ridge Ski Area is in the works by North 40 Productions.

We learned that week it is titled “Lifted.” That ski area opened in 1966, thanks to the pioneering work of the late Wilmer Hampton, whose name is on the lodge there.

He was a civil engineer as well as a Class A ski jumper, did the studies that proved the advantages of putting a ski area there. But interest began much earlier.
