Ragged Mt is providing race training for interested Masters racers during the upcoming racing season.  Training lasts from the first weekend Ragged Mt is open until the end of the competitive Master`s season. There are black- out periods such as Christmas vacation and Spring breaks. However if a Master(s) is around they can jump in for training if an older group happens to be on the hill. Typically we provide an option for groups to train during Xmas but limited to just free skiing/drills etc. given limited terrain for gates. It just depends on how busy we are. Again, we are limiting the number of athletes this first season to 6 Masters with 1 coach. Membership Application . If you need more information please contact Greg Mountford (g.mountford@raggedmountainresort.com).
