Ragged Mountain Green Day

Bonin Architects was invited by the Ragged Mountain Resort to participate in their second annual Green Day Event March 14th.

Ragged Mountain is located in Danbury, NH, just an hour and a half drive from Boston. Established in 1964, Ragged Mountain is now positioned to be one of the fastest growing ski resorts and real estate development in New Hampshire with a master plan in place to develop the ski area into a four-season resort community which now includes 2000 acres.

The Green Day Event highlighted the steps Ragged Mountain Resort has done and is doing to provide an enjoyable skiing experience while being environmentally friendly and to provide general information on the daily impact a person makes on the environment. Environmentally-conscious businesses and vendors were invited to attend to educate guests on ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

Ragged Mountain is the only property in New Hampshire to have partnered with Audubon International to develop a comprehensive Natural Resources Management Plan to conserve biodiversity, promote sustainability, and maximize ecosystem management and ecological restoration. Over the next several years, Ragged Mountain will strive to become fully-certified as an Audubon International "Signature" Property.

We met many people at the Green Day event interested in learning more about sustainable design options in new green home construction utilizing options such as structural insulated panels, geothermal and solar techniques.
