Visited for the day with my daughter for our annual spring ski trip up north. she doesn't live around here anymore so the trip isn't actually annual anymore and it wasn't spring either, due to her schedule. We come from MA and never ventured up to Ragged Mtn. before. We've been everywhere in Vt.from Killington southward and we've skied Sunapee and Crotched together in NH. There were not many at Ragged on Thursday 1/30, when we were there so there were short/no lift lines. Parking was easy. Car to lodge to mountain, easy.
The mountain(s)(2) provided a varied selection of trails and the trails were excellently maintained. There were 32 available at the beginning of the day and a couple more opened by day's end. Beautiful ski area, really, zero complaints. If we were there for two days, we would have probably run out of terrain (but they have @ 20 more trails not open at the time) We loved it. It was a memorable day. ... Full Review

This is a good intermediate mountain with reasonably priced weekend lift ticket and rental package for my friend. Looking for just a more relaxed day of skiing, I was surprised at the ticket prices at similarly sized nearby mountains. RM didn't have as much terrain open, but plenty of variety. First arriving around 9 or so I was worried about seeing the lift lines (they have two main lifts- one for each peak). However their very organized lift employees really moved everyone along, and the RFID system really helps. So I thought didn't feel like we were in line for long at all - so they have some good people working there. The lifts didn't break down - all the equipment and promised trails are open. The base lodge restaurant is quite nice with fast service. I think they need some more snowmaking infrastructure - so more of the mountain can be accessed reliably. They also had a clogged toilet in one of the men's rooms - that's a simple fix but it's not a huge facility, so every bathroom counts. But hey - a nice low key outing, I thought it was a good value and under 2 hrs from boston. ... Full Review
This is a real review. I snowboarded there 5 years ago and i liked it, quiet place out of the way of the bigger resorts and i had a good time. Last year, 2018, i returned and i didnt like what i saw. I went for the new hampshire resident ski deal on sundays. I showed up and was told i have to buy a refill card on top of the advertised deal! What? Not only that but the place was completely packed and the lift lines were the longest ive ever seen anywhere. Also, i went to have my snowboard sharpened in the shop and the employee was rude. I turned around and drove home. ... Full Review
Ragged used to be family friendly now they just want your money. They now force you to buy a refillable card upfront which is not refundable. It is an extra $5/person not per family. So a family of 4 it is an extra $20 even if you buy their flex ticket. It is only $6 less than a full day. Other mountains do this but you have the option to return it and get your money back. ...

The Turnpike trail is marked as a green beginner hill but it is so steep and icy my 8 and 10-year-olds had a terrible time getting down. My 8 yo was escorted by staff because she refused to go down. It was too scary. This leaves only one true beginner hill - the Barnyard Trail. ... Full Review
Great place for a day trip from the Boston area. We were able to enroll our six year old son in the full day ski school with lunch which allowed us to ski until closing time. Although only half the trails were open, the open ones were well groomed and there was a lot of powder. The two quad lifts are fast which gave us more runs than other local mountains. Also, the staff were especially friendly. Randy at the ski school is an awesome instructor!!... Full Review

Ragged Mt. Has perfect pitch. Have skied Ragged since I was 12 and I'm 61. Looking forward to another great ski season at my absolute favorite mountain and I've skied nearly everywhere and then some. Take it from someone who knows; give Ragged a try and you'll think you found ski heaven!!... Full Review
