Ragged Mtn/Blue Hills Launch Snowboard Website

Two resorts, two states one name. Ragged Mountain Resort of Danbury, New Hampshire and the Blue Hills Ski Area of Canton, Massachusetts may be separated by a state line and 125 miles, but now they are one when it comes to offering all snowboarding has to offer with new parks and a website.

The snowboard specific website www.infinitesnowboarding.com was launched Monday, October 8th. Infinite means “having no boundaries or limits.”

“There are no limits to what is possible at Ragged Mountain and Blue Hills, therefore we decided to brand snowboarding at both resorts with the name infinite,” says Eric Webster, the Director of Snowboard Marketing & Operations for both ski areas.

The infinite snowboarding site is the only place enthusiasts have to visit for everything they need to know about snowboarding. Consumers will greatly benefit from the site’s offering of weather and snow reports, directions, lodging information, rates and prices. The everyday rider can log on for specific and timely daily park and halfpipe reports. For instance, these reports will record to the minute when the halfpipe at Ragged was last groomed.

Infinitesnowboarding.com is now the place to find out what’s going on in the sport. The site will feature news on the local snowboard scene, including rider profiles and snowboard staff profiles. It will also be filled with complete listings of all snowboard events and reports and results from prior events, including stills and streaming video to give the viewer the feeling they were there.

The variety of the site can be seen in its step-by-step instructions on Learning to Ride, which will include such beginner information as what to prepare for, what to wear, how long it will take, and what type of equipment is needed.

There will definitely much to talk about on the site at both Ragged Mountain Resort and the Blue Hills Ski Area. When Ragged opens for the season, snow boarders will be able loft spacious air through the new Infinite snowboard park; one that boasts more than 3000 linear feet of traditional table-tops, modified table-tops, step-downs, step-ups, rails, hips, berms and the new competition halfpipe. Not to be outdone, the Blue Hills Ski Area will introduce its own infinite terrain park- the first to be built inside Route 128.

Eric Webster will utilize his 16 years of experience to run both parks. He comes to Ragged Mountain/Blue Hills after managing the snowboard program & facilities at New England’s largest ski resort- Killington/Pico. He has also been involved with snowboarding programs in Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire. He is currently the Technical Advisor for the Grand Prix Series, North America’s Olympic Qualifying Series for snowboarding.

He says, “Infinite snowboarding will soon be synonymous with professionally run and fun snowboard events, quality terrain parks and half-pipes and infinite possibilities on where and when to ride. Snowboarders and college students in the Boston area will have the opportunity to ride midweek just minutes from their campuses and homes at Blue Hills, and then on the weekends make the short trip up I-93 to Ragged Mountain and flex their boards on the diverse terrain in the White Mountains.”

The possibilities are infinite.
