Happy Vacation Week!

A perfect President’s Day weekend and vacation week is all ready for your enjoyment at beautiful Ragged Mountain! 

We’ve received 7” of new snow this week, and the mountain is a winter wonderland of great skiing and riding. Our groomers have been working overtime to buff out the ski trails for your enjoyment. We’ll have 44 trails and glades open served by 5 lifts including the Ragged Mountain Express 6 and the Spear Mountain Express Quad to our two summit peaks. We’ll have skiing and riding for all ability levels with our Barnyard Triple and our two Carpets serving novice terrain. And, just in time for the holiday weekend, we're happy to announce that the boardercross course on Lower Chutes is finally open to the public! Complete with sweeping berms and rollers, this course is crowd favorite that everyone raves about. 

The forecast over the holiday weekend calls for flurries and light snow, so the mountain will stay in great shape for your holiday enjoyment. Buy your lift tickets on-line on the day before your visit and save money here. If you already have a Ragged Mountain “Direct to Lifts” card, you can click right here to reload online and skip the line!

When you're ready to refuel, head on up to Birches Mountain Restaurant to grab a bite while overlooking some of the best views at the resort. With table service and an updated menu for the '18-'19 season, this is the perfect lunch spot when you're looking for something a little extra! 

Beautiful Ragged Mountain is the place to be this weekend! See you here.

Back To Winter!

After the quick thaw that Mother Nature threw our way, we're happy to be staring at a forecast for the coming week that looks a lot more like winter! Headed into the weekend, we're looking forward to sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 20's to mid 30's. Talk about a difference from the 50 degree day we had on Thursday!

With the return to cold temperatures, anyone who visited us today may have noticed some snowmakers scurrying around to get Exhibition set back up for snowmaking operations. Following the warm weather, they're going to be working hard to help build up some more of those piles. Our groomers will be working hard too, pushing around the new snow and laying down that beautiful corduroy that we all love so much. Even with those warm temps and that clear precipitation, our surface is skiing as good as ever!

We're also amped about all the hard work that the Terrain Park Crew has been putting in over on Wild Side and Wild Ride. The top half of the terrain park is scheduled to open up tomorrow with three jumps and a hip. The team has certainly outdone themselves over there this year, and we're looking forward to seeing you all get sendy in the park. Be sure to mention @ragged_parks on Instagram, and as always, we'll see you on the slopes!

Ragged Winter Weather Watch!

Mother Nature paid us a visit last night into the early morning hours, bringing with her 3-4" of the goods! The skiing today at beautiful Ragged Mountain should be fantastic, so why not cash in one of those sick days early this year to come make some turns in first fresh snow of 2019! 

We're keeping a close eye on another storm system that's forecast to bring some more snow early next week. The extended forecast beyond next week looks promising too, so be sure to keep tuned here for your latest updates on snowfall totals and trail openings at Ragged Mountain!

The Holidays May Be Over, But the Fun is Just Getting Started!

After another great day of skiing and riding at beautiful Ragged Mountain, we're looking forward to heading into today with lower temps and sunny skies. Conditions are fantastic right now, and if you make it up, there are plenty of great turns to be had. What better way to work off those holiday cookies than with a few extra runs?!

If you're still on vacation, be sure to take advantage of the week ahead, as temperatures are expected to be favorable and there's even a chance we could see a few flurries during the day tomorrow. We know you college students are likely still on break for another couple of weeks, so be sure to take advantage of our College Cut deal. For just $39 dollars, you can come shred with us, Sunday through Friday! Be sure you bring your current student ID with you when you come visit.

The temperatures should be in the mid 20's which is perfect conditions for our snowmakers to get set and start back up. A light breeze is anticipated throughout the day today which will only make it easier for our snowguns to blanket the hill. Keep your eyes peeled for snowmakers on Upper Exhibition, Town Meeting, and Birches, and be sure to say thank you when you do!
