OPENING DAY!!! - 29 Trails, Woot Woot

Bam, and just like that we're open for what looks to be a killer first day at Ragged Mountain. 29 trails will be open today. YES, 29 trails. Come Get It!!! Check out our Slope Report for complete details.

Our Mountain Ops Team of snowmakers, groomers, and ski patrol have been working hard this week getting our man-made snow ready and evaluating all our natural terrain that has been blanketed by Mother Nature. Here's what to know about conditions.

- We're looking at all ungroomed terrain having anywhere from 1 foot to over 3 feet of natural snow. This means that all ungroomed terrain can have thin spots, may have exposed water bars, and are best suited to expert skiers and riders. Please use your best judgement when entering an ungroomed trail, even though it may be a Blue Square, it will still pose a higher difficulty today due to conditions. 

- Novice Skiers and Riders, we are starting with top to bottom groomed terrain for you! Blueberry Patch to Upper Chute to Main Street will be open and groomed and is the easiest way down!

- Intermediate Skiers and Riders, both Raggae Glades and Moose Alley will be open for those who want to explore the trees on opening day, but want to keep the thrill level within their skill base. It looks great in there, but still please exercise caution with thin cover in areas.

We are very excited to be able to open this much terrain today, and just ask that you take a steady and cautious approach. Remember to get your skiing and snowboarding legs back, it is just day one.

Can't wait to see you all lined up and ready to go for first chair at 10am!!!
