More Terrain Opening Tomorrow

It is hard to believe, but we are now coming into the middle of ski-season at Ragged Mountain Resort. With the talented team of staff, it has been an extremely enjoyable season thus far. Mountain Operations has kept our snow surface conditions silky smooth and plentiful. Our snowmaking team has kept a substantial amount of terrain open and growing even with the challenges of Mother Nature and the fairly mild winter. We have seen a lot of progression in technology advances with our new app and web cam. Our Food & Beverage department continues to get accolades from our guests with comments such as "the best food out of all of New Hampshire ski areas!" Our Learning Center books out every weekend and is having a major role in growing the sport of skiing and snowboarding. The Rental department has a vital role in getting new comers on the correct size equipment and our Rossignol high-end demo skis have been popular this year. The Ragged Edge Tuning shop has repaired many ski/snowboard bases and keeps those edges sharp and wax fast. The Guest Service department provides responsive service and that first impression experience our guests have come to love about Ragged Mountain. 

Looking forward we are opening more terrain for the weekend. Upper Exhibition, Birches, Town Meeting, and the upper section of Wild Side Terrain Park will be ready to go for 8:30AM Saturday morning. Our event schedule is heating up and will be occurring with more frequency. Wedding season is just around the corner, keep our venue in mind as we still have some dates available for this summer. You can also help us by doing a little snow dance, lets hope the #danburysnowbelt provides some storm cycles soon!
