Miracle March Delivers

Just as the Farmers' Almanac weather folklore says, March has certainly come in like a lion and may or may not go out like a lamb.  The forecast continues to look favorable and winter has really turned on at Ragged Mountain!  We will have to wait and see how the rest of the month shakes out, but we remain optimistic that the snow will continue to fly. 

March is fairly busy with fun things to do every weekend, keep an eye on our EVENT CALENDAR and come join us for guaranteed good times!

Lift ticket sales may be limited to ensure a quality mountain experience. Due to anticipated high demand, especially during peak holiday periods, lift tickets and rentals must be purchased online in advance. In the event lift tickets sell out, guests will not be able to buy them in-resort at the ticket window.  Season pass holder, Quad Packs, Buddy Tickets purchased with the passholder present are guaranteed access.


We currently have 100% of our terrain open, skiing and snowboarding on 57 trails and 250 acres of terrain!  This includes all 17 glades and some rarely open trails such as Cemetary Gates, Double Take, Triple Take and Raggedy Ann.  Our snow base depths are averaging 18 - 30 inches across all trails and ski slopes.  Please check our mobile app and MOUNTAIN REPORT on the website daily for the latest skiing and riding conditions.

Lift Operations

All 5 lifts - the Summit Six Express, Spear Mountain Express, Barnyard Triple, and Carpet 1 lifts are loading guests seven days a week.  We continue to operate the Wanna Be Wild surface lift Friday through Sundays. 

Grooming / Terrain Parks

Our grooming and snow surfaces continue to gain notoriety throughout the northeast.  We are so fortunate to have the experienced and talented snowcat operator team we do - kudos to them!  Grooming will continue to adjust between evenings and mornings depending on temperatures and when optimal conditions set up.  All terrain parks including the full Wild Side, Barnyard and Lower Chute BX course are in fine form right now.  The park crew has done a tremendous job hand-shaping and maintaining all the lips throughout the parks.  

Advance Sales

Lift tickets and rentals MUST be purchased online in-advance to guarantee availability and your place on the slopes.  Browse and purchase on our online store HERE.
