Northwest of Concord and southeast of Danbury, the Ragged Mountain Resort has 50 trails spread over 250 acres served by 6 lifts accessing a maximum descent of 1250 feet. The level of difficulty ranges from 30% beginner to 30% intermediate to 40% advanced.
There are three terrain parks to explore. Terrain Park is over 0.5 mile long with no intersections to break the flow. Those looking for something different can wander off the beaten path to explore Wild Woods, the new terrain park, featuring cliff drops, log slides and a quarter pipe. Beginners and children will find Pocket Park is the perfect place to hone those newly developing skills.
The ski area has a very nice, relaxed base area that is usually empty on weekdays. Keep an eye out for the future proposed expansion onto adjacent Pinnacle Peak with about a dozen new runs.
To reach the snowboarding at Ragged Mountain Ski Area from Concord, head north on US89 to Exit #11. Head east on SR11 for 7.5 miles to US4. Head west on US4 towards Danbury for 7 miles. Turn right heading east on for 1.4 miles. Turn right heading south on Ragged Mountain Road for 2.9 miles.
