New England Ski Journal recently visited with Erik Barnes, the new general manager at Ragged Mountain in New Hampshire, to get to know his background, his take on Ragged and what the future holds for the popular Granite State resort.
Ragged Mountain is owned by Pacific Group Resorts, based in Utah. Its holdings include Wisp Resort in Maryland, Wintergreen Resort in Virginia, Powderhorn Mountain in Colorado, and Mount Washington in British Columbia.
Barnes was named general manager of Ragged in the fall, after his predecessor moved to Wintergreen to head up the team there. Along with his wife, two daughters and two dogs, Barnes has relocated from West Chesterfield to Wilmot, New Hampshire.
