[R333R, Ragged Mountain] in Danbury, N.H., is entering its second season of ownership by RMR-Pacific LLC, an affiliate of Utah resort developer Pacific Group.

The old owners, Al and Walter Endriunas, had borrowed nearly $5 million from a private mortgage lender to begin expansion plans, but they defaulted on the loan and had to sell the resort to pay back their debt. They narrowly avoided foreclosure.

Since then, RMR-Pacific has been carrying out needed maintenance, and creating a long-term plan for the 1,650-acre resort, which includes the 220-acre ski area and an 18-hole golf course.

Gerald Jackson, one of three partners who purchased the resort, said at the time that its expansion could last at least 10 years and include condominiums, a swimming and tennis club, a fitness center, a children's adventure center, and expansion of the snowmaking and irrigation ponds to allow fishing or canoeing.

"We need to make it as close to a four-season destination as possible," Jackson said, but he was careful to say that no plans have been finalized.

Ragged has a vertical drop of 1,250 feet, 55 trails and glades, a terrain park, 95 percent snowmaking coverage, and seven lifts.
