I grew up skiing Mt Baker and started skiing again last year after a long break. Last year was the first time on skis for my 7 and 9 year old daughters. Three trips to Mt Baker with 3 one hour beginner group lessons and they were able to ride the beginner chair. We are planning to take a weekend trip to Leavenworth and my plan is to ski two days. I am considering Stevens and Mission Ridge. I am leaning toward Mission as I have never been and want to go someplace new. I haven't been to Stevens in 20 years and get the feeling it is a circus on weekends. I want to get the kids into a 1/2 day lesson so that I can get some time to ski. Can I go wrong with either mountain. Is one significantly better for my proposed plan?
