The Ronald Reagans Big ‘80s Show is a totally rad tribute act! From the BIG hair to the bodacious ‘80’s inspired costumes, the Reagans take their audiences back to the most radically awesome decade ever…. The 1980’s! A five-piece band with both female and male vocalists, the performers have both Broadway and national touring experience. A family-friendly act for ages 8-88, the musicians perform the most authentic, note-for-note recreations of the chart topping pop, new wave, and rock hits of the ‘80s. From private events and weddings to clubs and casinos, the Ronald Reagans BIG ‘80s Show brings a most excellent party atmosphere that made the 1980s a decade of all thing totally awesome!

Build Your Own Custom Snowboard Class

The gang at Ragged Mountain has teamed up with Hidden Collective out of Franklin New Hampshire and PowderJet Snowboards out of Peru, VT to host a Build Your Own Custom Snowboard Class at Ragged on August 19th and 20th. The BYO class gives diehard snowboards a chance to actually help build their very own custom snowboard. Jesse Loomis, founder of PowderJet Snowboards started the company with the intent to “…handcraft an eco-conscience, super fun snowboard to tear up the backcountry”. And, now he’s giving snowboarders throughout New England a chance to build their own, with his guidance.

Classes will be held starting the morning of Saturday, August 19th through the following afternoon on Sunday the 20th. The class will be held right at Ragged Mountain Resort in Danbury, NH. We need a minimum of four students for private workshops, and cap each class at eight to make sure you get the attention you need.

For $795 you get the class and your own hand built custom snowboard from PowderJet. You choose your model and shape, and even create your own artwork for a custom topsheet. At the end of the weekend, you leave with a totally one of a kind PowderJet that's ready to ride.
