Getting Ready for Winter

The Leaves Are Changing and We're Getting Ready for Winter!

The view from our offices here at Ragged Mountain Resort has certainly gotten more colorful this past week. In only a matter of days the sea of green out our windows has begun to show hints of red, orange, and yellow. The mornings are crisp, and the afternoons couldn't be more beautiful. 

For many, fall marks the start of school and getting back into the normal rhythm of the day to day. But for us, this time of year is when we start kicking into full gear, making sure that updates to our facilities are done, and the areas of improvement needed are being addressed. For Al and his team on Mountain Ops this means making sure that our snowmaking system is as efficient as it can be.

Monday we received a shipment of 2000 feet of new snowmaking pipe to help improve the efficiency of our snowmaking on Chutes and Lower Chutes. This will allow our team to more readily make snow on an important easier trail during the early days of the season. For those of us who appreciate a good fall project, this has been one that our snowmaking team has been looking forward to for a while. Snowmaking is a tough job, so anything that can make the task easier and help deliver snow where you want it, when you want it, is much appreciated. We hope this winter you'll take a few turns down Chutes and think of our guys working hard this fall.
