Logo   Ragged Mountain Ski Resort, Danbury
A pretty ski resort with good snow and good facilities, but difficult to find if you don't already know where it is.



Ragged Mountain ski area just east of Danbury NH, is among New Hampshire's best-kept ski area secrets...and I mean that literally: if you don't already know where it is, you may have a difficult time finding it!

Signage is ridiculously lacking. There's only one sign on the roads leading to the ski area, and it faces east, so only people driving westbound on NH Route 104 can see it. If you come any other way, you're out of luck.

Even when you actually get to Ragged Mountain, you won't see a sign until you actually approach the slopes.

I guess this keeps it for local skiers, who have a good time skiing its 200+ acres on three peaks served by nine ski lifts, with 98% snowmaking cover to guarantee good skiing.

To find it—here's the secret!—from Interstate 93, Exit 23, go west on NH Route 104 past the hamlet of Elmwood and watch for that single solitary sign on the right-hand side of the highway. Less than a mile past the sign, on the left, look for a small street sign reading "Ragged Mountain Road." Follow this road to the ski area. If you come to Danbury NH, you've missed the turn.

Coming from Danbury, watch for the "Ragged Mountain Road" street sign on your right (south) on the outskirts of the town.
