Today will be another full day of action at the mountain with two major events happening.
On Flying Yankee the U/16 and U/19 Lafoley Giant Slalom race will be taking place. Cheer on these local athletes as they compete against the clock on a fun GS Course. You can watch the action by hiking up to the spectator's area. Please note that there are no dogs allowed on hill. For a complete spectator's policy please see race registration.
On the lower third of the terrain park we will be hosting our annual Back In The Day Mini Pipe Jam. Come watch local snowboarders tear it up in our hand-cut mini pipe. Old School style is key to landing a spot in the winner's circle. You can catch the action from the bottom of the park.

35" over the past week has easily made for the best skiing and riding so far this season. Almost all of our natural and gladed terrain is open and the snow in the woods is deep!
Today looks like it could add a bit more snow, with some light flurries in the mix. It will be cloudy with temps in the low 30's, which will help keep the snow around. The lower section of the terrain park will be closed today for the team to continue work on the mini pipe for Back In The Day which will be held on Sunday the 18th.
If you were not able to get to the mountain yesterday, make plans now to get here for this weekend. MISSION: AFFORDABLE season passes are now on sale, and there are still ticket deals online for Saturday and Sunday. Click HERE to buy now.Last Edited by Ragged Mountain on Thursday, March 15, 2018
What's better than getting next year's MISSION: AFFORDABLE Season Pass today for only $259? The fact that you get to ski this season with it, starting today, and we just got another 18" of fresh snow!
Go online right now to purchase your 2018/19 season pass! When you get to the mountain, head into Guest Services where they will issue you a pass for the remainder of the 2017/18 season so you can get right on the lift and #getragged in all this fresh new snow!
Today is going to be a fun one for sure. Snow will continue throughout the day today, adding a bit more to the 18" that has fallen over the past 24 hours. We will continue to update the snow report as more terrain is opened.
*UPDATE* We are at 96% open now (Terrain Park closed due to building the Mini Pipe for Back in The Day on March 18th).

It's a little bit before 6 am as this is being typed, on Tuesday, March 13th. The storm is really just getting going, but we are forecasted to see anywhere from a foot to 18 inches out of this one. It will be intense throughout the day, providing us with, as we like to say, Free Refills! Stay tune right here on the blog and on our slope report for updates as we welcome a second nor'easter, in less than a week's time, to Ragged.
Make sure you get up to the mountain early, drive safely, and we will see you on the mountain!Last Edited by Ragged Mountain on Tuesday, March 13, 2018
It may be Monday and you may be back to work or school, but have no fear, this week will be a great week for skiing and riding. Here's what it looks like
That looks like a pretty good week to us. We'll see you on the mountain!Last Edited by Ragged Mountain on Monday, March 12, 2018
Today is going to be a fun day! With the conditions holding after the fresh snowfall from this past week the skiing and riding is fantastic. Today's weather will remain in the low 30's and cloudy, which looks to be the boarder of yet another system which will make it's way in sometime late Monday hopefully bringing us another substantial snow fall. It's been a while since we've kicked up those dancing shoes, but it looks like if we give it another go March could be a snowy month!
Enjoy the mountain today!Last Edited by Ragged Mountain on Sunday, March 11, 2018
Happy Saturday, everyone! It's looking like today is going to be a fantastic day to kick off the weekend. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 30's with partly cloudy skies. Thanks to winter storm Quinn, conditions all over the mountain are amazing right now, so be sure to come make some turns.
Today, we'll be hosting the Boston Ride & Ski Card Party up in the Stone Hearth Bar. Complete with prizes, giveaways, a Tap Takover by Harpoon Brewery, and live music by Shark Martin, this is going to be one party you do not want to miss.

Following an amazing powder day yesterday, you'd forget that today is March 9! After 15" of the fluffy stuff, the hill is in fantastic shape and is ready for you to tear up. Expect temperatures to be in the lower to mid 30's throughout the day with mostly cloudy skies.
This weekend, we look forward to an awesome party celebrating The Ski & Ride Card. There will be loads of prizes and giveaways up in the Stone Hearth Bar, along with regular favorites, including a Tap Takeover by Harpoon Brewery and live music by New Hampshire band, Shark Martin! After all the snow, you won't want to miss this weekend.

Winter Storm Quinn has been good so far, dropping up to 12" by 8:00 this morning, and it's not done yet! We will keep things updated throughout the morning as Patrol is able to get on hill and assess the conditions on our natural trails. We have opened Exhibition Glades, Moose Alley, and Raggae Glades, Sweepstakes, Cabin Fever and Lower Easy Winder. The Skiing and Riding is great! We hope to see you out here enjoying it with us.
The terrain parks will be closed today so the park crew can begin to dig out the features. This includes the boarder/skiercross course on Lower Chutes.Last Edited by Ragged Mountain on Thursday, March 08, 2018
The day we've been waiting for is here! After all the weatherman hype, we're keeping our fingers crossed that this storm system will deliver the goods we were promised. The temperatures today will be in the mid to upper 20's and the snow is expected to start flying around midday.
If you've been dying to scratch that powder itch, today and tomorrow are the perfect days for you to call out from work. Be sure to buy your ticket before you get to the mountain to save. We'll be sure to save a spot on the chairlift, just for you!

Happy Tuesday, all! It's shaping up to be yet another amazing day here at the resort. With temperatures in the upper 30's to low 40's and partly cloudy skies, we couldn't ask for better spring conditions. Winter isn't through yet, however, as just on the horizon, another storm is forecast to come through tomorrow and drop a couple inches of the fluffy stuff.
And that isn't all. The extended forecast is also showing another couple of systems that have the potential to bring some snow to the northeast. At this point in the year, most people are thinking spring, but not us -- we're thinking snow! How about you?
Get your ticket for tomorrow's storm now and save. We'll see you on the slopes!Last Edited by Ragged Mountain on Tuesday, March 06, 2018

Temperatures today will be in the upper 30's to low 40's, and you should expect it to be partly cloudy for the duration of the day. As an added treat, the boarder cross course will be open to the general public today, so if you've always wanted to give it a try, now is your chance!
