Ragged is back! This is the best all around skiing experience in NH. The snowmaking capacity is no longer below the standards of other NH resorts and the crowds are not nearly as bad as the better known resorts. Wildcat, Waterville and Cannon have more top to bottom elevation but Ragged offers a nice variety of terrain. In fact looking at terrain in total, only Wildcat has more to offer than Ragged and it is a much longer drive from southern NH and MA. Spear Mountain chair is very slow for a relatively long chair and replacing it with a detachable quad would be the best improvement Ragged could make in the near future.
