COVID-19 Guidelines & Updates

UPDATE: November 6

Below are the Covid guidelines by department. Please review prior to arrival. Thank you in advance for adhering to all guidelines.

Click on a departmet to expand the information, or reach out to us directly if you have a question that is not listed on this page.

Our intention is guests skiing on a Buddy Ticket provided to them by a season pass holder will be able to access the slopes any day the resort is open to season pass holders. Similarly, our intention is Mission: Four’dable ticket holders will be able to ski or ride any day the resort’s slopes are open. In the event there is limited terrain available, or if regulations are put in place restricting the number of participants on the slopes and capacity limitations thus become necessary, our advance online reservation system will give priority to Buddy Ticket users or Mission: Four’dable ticket holders ahead of day ticket buyers.


We will have limited indoor space for seating. We have redesigned the layout of the lodge and removed close to 50% of the furniture to allow for more space in the lodge and appropriate social distancing. We ask that you DO NOT bring bags into the lodge. You should consider your vehicle as your ‘personal base lodge’ and, whenever possible, plan to store all your personal items there. And please be sure to boot up at your vehicle! There will be more outdoor seating including heaters along the Bricks. There will be limited seating in the Stone Hearth and Birches for dining guests only. Due to restricted lodge space, please keep your time in the lodge to less than 30 minutes at a time. NO Personal boot bags, lunch bags, coolers, etc. per NH Covid-19 guidelines.
Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitization:

  • High-touch surfaces will be frequently cleaned and disinfected.
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting will take place frequently throughout the day in our public restrooms.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be provided.
  • Frequent handwashing is required of employees.

As of now, we are trying to avoid season pass reservations, but state mandates are changing rapidly. We will keep you updated here on all guidelines and Ragged Mountain policies.

We will have limited indoor space for seating, so we are advocating more outdoor use and are providing outdoor heaters to make your experience more enjoyable. You will be able to order food from your smartphone through our APP. You can pick up your food from the Harvest Cafe and dine inside, take it to your vehicle, or you can take it to one of our outdoor seating areas. There will be limited seating in the Birches for dining guests only. Seating for the Stone Hearth will be across the entire second floor of Elmwood Lodge. Unfortunately, we do not plan to have any live bands or promotional events in the pub this season. NO Personal Lunch bags, coolers, etc. per Covid-19 guidelines.

Cashless transactions are preferred at all locations.


Ragged Mountain Ski Patrol First Aid buildings will have limited access and are for injured guest’s. The Ski Patrol First Aid building is NOT a Clinic. It is strongly suggested that if someone has flu like symptoms that they contact their Physician or go to a Health Care Clinic. Ski Patrol will assist injured guests as we always have providing emergency and temporary First Aid.

We plan to have smaller class sizes this season and all lessons will need to be pre-purchased. Our Lesson Rates and Packages for Ski School are available HERE. We will offer our popular Adventure Camp Program for kids ages 7-12 years old. For anyone seeking a lesson UNDER 7 YRS OLD, a parent or guardian must now accompany the lesson. All Lessons and Ski School Packages must be pre-purchased online in advance. 


All daily rentals will be reserved/sold online. When in the Rental Shop to pick equipment up, guests must practice 6 feet social distancing indoors at all times, and abide by the capacity restrictions. Equipment will be disinfected in-between uses.


We ask that you wear face coverings and practice social distancing by remaining 6 feet apart from others when in the parking lots. We ask that you don't bring bags into the lodge. You should consider your vehicle as your ‘personal base lodge’ and, whenever possible, plan to store all your personal items there. Folding or camp chairs and something to cover the ground is recommended to get your boots on in the parking lot.

We will have limited number of people inside the shop at any given time. Please call 603-768-3130 to ask questions about service or repair availability.

Caring Clean

When you come to Ragged Mountain Resort, you are here to enjoy yourself and to relax, refresh, and rejuvenate.  One key to relaxing is being comfortable and confident knowing your accommodations have been thoroughly and professionally cleaned and prepped for your stay. As part of Ragged Mountain Resort’s mission to maintain a safer, more comfortable environment for our guests and staff, we have instituted our Caring Clean practices throughout the resort.  Caring Clean procedures and standards go beyond the general cleaning practices typically established for the industry.  In addition to the obvious health benefits, a key reason we have adopted the Caring Clean protocols is so you can have the peace of mind that will allow you to get the most out of your time here.

Ragged Mountain Resort is implementing the following guidelines to maintain a clean and healthy environment for our guests.

UPDATE: March 26

The coronavirus has created a number of unique challenges.  One of those is how to continue to serve our guests while also helping to protect their health and the health of our wonderful staff.  We take both the service of our customers and the coronavirus safety concerns very seriously, so in order to protect our employees, our guests, and our communities, we are following CDC guidelines along with federal and state mandates for non-essential business operations in this most unusual of times.

To meet our dual objectives, while we are not open for normal in-person business transactions at the resort, we are available for business online, by telephone, or by email. We have staff working (mostly from home) who can respond to your needs and assist you with purchases and reservations so you can enjoy the fresh mountain air here in the not-too-distant future.  Please check our website frequently for the latest updates and answers to your questions, and contact us if we can assist you.

We hope everyone can be safe and healthy as we all follow social distancing and stay-at-home  protocols to get through this corona-crisis.
