    Ragged has great coverage for their beginner/cruiser terrain. Usually all covered by Christmas vacation if not a couple weeks after.
    I have issues with Ragged's snowmaking, but mostly just the speed with which they do it (which relates to infrastructure more than anything else I think). The snow they make is good and the grooming is as good as any resort which faces the number of freeze/thaw cycles Ragged does. I don't think either of those factors play into the beginner experience for me, IMO.

    You guys ski there last year? In the past they had a major water shortage which was largely rectified with the additional pond acreage. They not only covered all of their snowmaking terrain in a reasonable amount of time but went on to drag hoses to two non-snowmaking trails (Crew Cut and Pines).

    That would be a great improvement. I haven't been in 2 years. I will have to head back

    I was a passholder as recently as two years ago, but went back for a few days in December and January last year. Things didn't seem too different, but I agree the water is a huge improvement for them. The last year I was a passholder they dragged hoses for Crew Cut and i loved that.

    Again I generally have zero problem with their snowmaking. Like Canobie said they get a lot covered by Christmas even before this update. Excited to see where their snowmaking goes over the next few years.

    Did we overwhelm the original poster?
