Bike To Work, Formal Events, & Don't Miss Out!

Well, National Bike to Work Day has come and gone. A couple of us did make the ride in on what ended up being quite a spectacular day. The commute brought us 40+ miles to work and back along beautiful stream lined dirt roads, rail trails, and New Canada Road with its views off to Cardigan Mountain. These miles also counted towards our Ragged Mountain Resort Cycling Team’s National Bike Challenge log.

The changing of the season here at Ragged Mountain brings with it a bunch of formal events that we host. From High School Proms, Graduation Parties, Family Reunions, and Weddings, we can host many different formal and semi-formal events for a wide range of budgets. Check out our Weddings and Groups Sales page for more info or shoot us an email.

DON’T FORGET the Mission: Affordable Season Pass price goes up on June 1st. Currently at $279, this all-ages, No Black Out Dates, pass gives you access to the 57 trails, 17 glades, 3 terrain parks, and top-to-bottom beginner trails, serviced by two high-speed detachable lifts, including NH’s only 6-pack chairlift! It’s time to #getragged! BUY NOW!

Ragged Mountain Enters the National Bike Challenge

May is recognized as the National Bike Month to help raise awareness of cycling across the country and to help build more support, locally, regionally and nationally. As such it is also the launch of the annual National Bike Challenge, a free event that runs from May to September, which is designed to encourage people to get out and ride more. Using Strava to record all miles ridden, the challenge is a friendly competition with friends, colleges, and teams with recognition and prizes weekly, monthly, and for the whole challenge.

We’re psyched this season to be joining the challenge as the Ragged Mountain Resort Cycling Team. Many of us here at the mountain have already been out riding the local trails (when they’ve been dry), riding the road, and commuting to work. As part of the National Bike Month, this Friday the 19th is National Bike to Work Day and a few of us will make the commute by bike into the office for the day! If you would like to get involved, either with our team, or on your own, please click here.

As many of you already know, cycling is a great way to stay in shape for the winter time!

We hope to see you out there!

What A Great Season; More On The Way!

Now that we’ve all had a little bit of time to get back in the swing of spring… bike rides, kayaking, fishing, disc golf, and more, we can’t help but think back on how awesome this past season was.

Thank you to everyone who came out and GOT RAGGED this winter! We hope you had as much fun as we did. Weather you joined in on the Bebe Wood Free Learn to Ski & Ride Program and tried this great sport for the first time, or tested your skills on the last weekend in the woods or across the pond, we hope you found some fun times with some good people!

In case you missed it, check out the write up in Snowboarder on the post season photo shoot our Ragged MTN Parks team did with a bunch of local pros! Thanks to Mike Azevedo for the photos, Brendan Hart for the write up, and our own Bryan Harper for making it all happen! The massive Hip was built and sessioned all in one beautiful day in the middle of April, and the riders were having so much fun they went until the sun was down. Truly some incredible shots! Thanks to Will Mayo for the shots seen here in this blog post! 

We’ve got some great events we are planning for this summer here at Ragged Mountain. Keep your eyes out for more details!

#getragged!
