So… What Do You Guys Do During The Summer?

This is a pretty common question we get asked each year, and while there is a lot less activity at the ski area during the summer months, there is still quite a lot that happens.

Catered Events: From weddings to reunions to anniversary parties, we host all kinds of formal catered events. Our team from the winter time shifts focus from group sales and everyday food and beverage service to high level catered events that range from lobster bakes and pig roasts, to 5 course meals. With three different wedding sites, including the summit of Ragged Peak which overlooks the White Mountains and Cardigan Mountain, and our on-site lodging, we host several weekend long Wedding Parties.

Training: The off season is when our year round teams work to ensure we are all trained to handle any kind of issue that might arise. Just this past week we welcomed our good friend Peter Koch, from Memic, a work place safety company we partner with, to work on various rigings and safety techniques when evacuating a staff member from a lift tower.

Events: Hosting events is just one more thing we do over the course of the summer. This year we are very excited to play host to the 2018 USATF 50K Trail National Championships with the good folks from 603 Endurance. The Ragged 75 Stage Race and 50K takes runners up and over the SRKG (Sunapee, Ragged, Kearsarge Greenway) Trail. Starting August 10th, Runners choose from either a 3 day stage race along the entire 75 mile look, or a 50K on Sunday August 12th. Upon completion, a big party is held right here at the base of Ragged Mountain Resort.
