New Hampshire's Ragged Mountain Resort Invests Additional $1 Million into Snowmaking and Resort Improvements for 2012 -2013

Danbury, New Hampshire, October 17, 2012 - New Hampshire's Ragged Mountain Resort recently announced over $1 million in resort improvements for the upcoming 2012-2013 winter season. Most notably, the Exhibition trail, under New Hampshire's only high speed six person lift, becomes the second top-to-bottom trail at the Resort with fully computerized automated snowmaking. There are 170 new low-energy/high-efficiency snow guns being built at the resort this year with 50 of them being placed on the Exhibition trail. The additional 120 snow guns will be used to bury other trails and resurface high-traffic areas around the mountain. There will also be five new fan guns, plus a new pump that will push 25% more water on the both Ragged and Spear peaks.

"What this means for our guests is that we will be able to make more snow earlier in the season, using 50% less energy, with a goal of opening both peaks as early in December as possible," said Bob Ashton, President of Ragged Mountain Resort. "We have invested more than $2 million into snowmaking upgrades over the past two seasons. As we begin our future expansion and development, we understand how important a state-of-the-art snowmaking and lift system is for our customers and our success."
