Mark and Cynthia Lorenzoni met at Michigan State in 1979, and were married in 1980 after moving to Charlottesville. At the time there was no running specialty store in the area, and with their passion for the sport, Mark and Cynthia decided in the winter of 1982 to open shop on the tree lined, brick sidewalked street of Elliewood across from the University of Virginia. Over the next 14 years, their business and family grew (they now have four children), and in the spring of 1999 they moved to a larger location on Elliewood. In the fall of 2006, thanks to continued growth and community support, Ragged Mountain moved once more to its current downstairs location at #3 Elliewood (former home of Eljo’s Traditional Clothiers). Despite the steady physical growth, the Lorenzonis and staff have remained committed to providing their customers with the most courteous, professional and intimate service. They continue to adhere to their original mission of treating each and every Ragged Mountain guest with first class care.
