Just to clear up any confusion, Echo Ridge is a complex of snow shoe and cross country trails, managed by the US Forest Service, and the Chelan Nordic Ski Club.


Echo Valley, on the other hand, is a downhill ski and tubing area, operatied by the non profit Lake Chelan Ski Club.

And, they are opening this weekend- with some limitations. Tubing hill and rope tows will be running as normal, but the Poma Lift will not be running-

So, tickets will be discounted to $15 per person, per day.
