Overview

Winter is Coming! Time to dig out your gear, dust off the cobwebs, and pull yourself away from the computer screen. The objective is to do multiple laps up and down Ragged Mtn near Danbury, NH. Ragged has 1,300 vertical feet and allows skinning on their trails with an $10 uphill pass (purchased from Ragged). This is an informal Greet & Go with no registration needed. We will naturally divide into groups of different paces and you will likely find others to skin up with. You should be capable of climbing 1,500 - 2,500 vertical feet and able to ski down a groomed intermediate run. You will need to bring your own gear or borrow - no rentals are available nearby. (If you need rentals, see Skin & Ski trip at Loon Mtn on Jan 9). Questions? Contact the leader We will meet at 9:00 on the outdoor patio near the fire pit. For those vaccinated, there will be car pooling. If interested in car pooling, contact the leader.
