603 Brewery Tap Takeover!

Welcome to Saturday, December 30! Temperatures today are forecast to be a little warmer today, with highs in the low teens, but it's definitely still going to be a cold one, so be sure to bundle up and keep your eyes peeled for early signs of frostbite.

While you're waiting to warm up, why not stop by the Stone Hearth Bar for some hot chili and great drinks. This weekend, 603 Brewery will be taking over the taps in the bar, bringing along favorites like their 18 Mile Rye Pale Ale, Winni Amber Ale, White Peaks IPA, Wood Devil Double IPA, and their Coffee Cake Porter! We're in for an exciting weekend. See you soon!

'Twas The Day Before Christmas...

...And all across the resort, conditions are holding because our mountain ops team ROCKS!

Conditions today will be a soft, frozen granular surface which will be very fun to carve some turns in. While some may see yesterday’s freezing rain as a bad thing, it has actually helped in a couple of ways. One it helped to generate a nice firm base in the woods which will be great for the New Year and tree skiing/riding. Two it recharged our snowmaking ponds giving us more water as we look to continue the snowmaking program on Spear this week.  What does all this mean… with the cold temps and snow in the forecast for this week, the skiing and riding for the holiday week should be fantastic!

Don’t forget to spend the last few minutes of 2017 with us at our annual New Year’s Eve Party. There will be plenty of dancing, fireworks, a great dinner, and specials from the 603 Brewery. Reserve your seats today, or grab some friends and go in on a table. Call 603-768-3166 to get your tickets, space is becoming extremely limited.

Birches Opens Today!


Moose Ally is open, go have fun in the trees!

Today is Sunday, December 17, and the conditions are expected to be amazing. Our groomers were hard at work last night in the snow squalls pushing out the snow on Lower Ridge and Headwall, so you can expect these trails to be open sometime today!

Birches Mountain Restaurant will also be open today from 11 am to 4 pm. Birches is located on the second floor of the Elmwood Lodge. Be sure to stop on by and grab lunch with the family!

A Great Weekend & More Fun Ahead!

As the weekend comes to a close and more snow begins to fall from the sky, we think about how great it feels to be back on the slopes! What a fun day, and what a great start to the 2017/18 season.

The good news is things are just beginning! There is more snow in the forecast for the next week and continued cold temps. This will allow our team to continue making snow across Ragged Peak. The goal is to see more terrain opening up soon, so keep an eye on the daily Slope Report for updates!

Also make sure to check out the upcoming events this month. Along with live music every Saturday from 4 pm to 7 pm in the Stone Hearth Bar, there will also be fun events both on and off the mountain. On December 23rd, the New Hampshire Mountain Inn welcomes Santa for breakfast from 9 am to 1 pm. Then at the Mountain we’re hosting the Squared Up Rail Jam, featuring DJ Scrumptious, and the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony! Then on New Year’s Eve we’re throwing a huge party to help usher in 2018!

Beat the Mondays!

After a fantastic opening weekend, it looks like Monday is shaping up to be another terrific day! After shredding the slopes all morning, be sure to head over to the Harvest Cafe today to try one of our deli fresh sandwiches to refuel.

The Pop Up Park is still located on the lower part of Village Green and is hike access only. If you're looking to get some practice in for any early season competitions, this is the perfect place for you to session and beat your case of the Mondays!
