We have received 6 inches of blower powder over the past 7 days and the temps have stayed cold enough to keep the snow well preserved. Going into the holiday weekend we have 54 trails and 245 acres of terrain open for you to enjoy! Snowstorms are beginning to stack up in the long term forecast and the skiing and snowboarding at Ragged Mountain are as good as it gets!  Make sure you purchase your lift tickets in advance, as the conditions have gotten so good - we are selling out of our daily lift ticket allotment for most Saturdays and Sundays many days in advance.

Ski and Stay Packages Available:

Discounted Ski and Stay rates are currently available at our New Hampshire Mountain Inn, located just down New Canada Rd. in Wilmot 5min from the ski trails. 

The New Hampshire Mountain Inn veritably exudes historic authenticity, but it has also been selectively updated to provide some of the nicest of modern amenities. For example, stroll from the country charm of the farmhouse to the spectacular Tavern-style Family Room, built around an open double-sided fireplace with a hearth that is cantilevered over the pool area and see how easily the past and present blend. It is a seamless juxtaposition that makes for an ideal retreat — for a self-aware individual, for a romantic couple, for an adventurous family, or for leading executive groups.

Food and Beverage:

Dining will be open this Saturday and Sunday from 11:00am to 4:30pm in our slope-side Birches Restaurant, which offers incredible views of skiers and riders coming down Main Street. Have you tried ordering take-out food through our APP yet? The Harvest Café menu is available 10:30am to 3:00pm Friday through Sunday. You can find the take-out / pick-up window on the Bricks along the main corridor entrance to the mountain. This convenience allows you to order from the chairlift or perhaps in your car as you are in route to carve up the slopes!

Uphill Traffic:

Uphill Skiing continues to be popular this season and guests seem to be enjoying our new route - Up Pines, Reggae Glades, across the intersection atop Wild Side and into an off-piste section under the powerlines to the summit! Please be sure to check in with Guest Services and allow us to notify Ski Patrol of your presence, for your safety. A current season pass or uphill ticket ($10) is required. Our Uphill Policy is found in the Winter header/Mountain Info/Uphill Policy or HERE.

Ski and Snowboard Conditions:

Stay up to date on our daily snow surface conditions and open terrain on our Snow Report updated every afternoon and early morning.

Advance Sales:

Lift tickets, equipment rentals and ski / ride lessons MUST be purchased online in advance to guarantee availability and your place on the slopes. Browse and buy on our online store.

Know Before You Go! 

Please review our Covid-19 guidelines prior to your arrival.  We thank you in advance for adhering to the guidelines and keeping our season safe!
