Welcome to Ridgeline
Ridgeline is a consortium of companies created specifically to meet the training and material support needs of our Civilian, Law Enforcement, and Military clients.
Founded in 2019, the Ridgeline Training Center located in Dalton, NH serves as the base of operations. The Training Center itself is purpose-built to provide unique and challenging training opportunities such as Long-Range Precision Rifle shooting on our 1200-yard mountain wind course, or engaging dozens of steel and moving targets from our multi-story sniper tower, and even working pistol and carbine platforms in and around vehicles and CONEX façade. Our courses utilize infrastructure that just can’t be found at other shooting facilities in New England. With over 400 pieces of steel, five moving target systems, pop up targets and more, we’ve invested heavily into the resources that add to the world-class instruction provided by our experienced and motivated staff.
The Ridgeline Defense Cadre is comprised of passionate and engaging instructors with over 100 years of Military and Law Enforcement Special Operations experience. Specializing in Pistol, Carbine, Precision Rifle, Breaching, Sniper Operations, and Low Visibility Force Protection, the team has built programs of instruction based on proven tactics and real-world experience. Our Mobile Training Team (MTT) can deliver our curriculum remotely, traveling to meet client needs whenever necessary. Trusted to train some of the world’s finest Special Operators and Law Enforcement personnel, our instructors take immense pride in their work and the student experience.
Initially created to assist Law Enforcement Agencies in material acquisition, Ridgeline Outfitters continues to expand to fill the needs of all our clients. Providing everything from firearms to night vision, body armor, lights, lasers, and accessories, we rely on our Industry relationships to curate a menu of products from only the best manufactures. With our high volume of students providing a front row seat to the shortcomings of existing products, Ridgeline Outfitters is now setting its sights on delivering performance-enhancing solutions. Products like the Ridgeline HOG Leash sling and DrOP Magazine mount have been specifically designed for the end user to solve the problems and challenges they have experienced with other products in real world applications.
While the facility continues to grow and change to meet the needs of our clients, Ridgeline’s core principles have remained the same: deliver world class and innovative instruction, from proven cadre, at a facility that maximizes the clients learning and experience.

The Ridgeline Training Center located in Dalton, NH
Just 2.5 hours from Boston’s Logan International Airport. Situated on nearly 80 acres in the heart of the White Mountains, our facility is designed by Special Operators and purpose-built to support world-class training, as well as to provide a discrete location for Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation needs. Depending on specific requirements, any area of the property can be tailored to accommodate your needs with minimal restrictions.
We believe in the value of experience and attitude coupled with the power of team. That’s exactly what you get from the cadre at Ridgeline. A group of knowledgeable and engaging instructors with over 100 years of military and law enforcement special operations experience. Active and former members of the U.S. Army Special Forces, U.S. Marine Corps Scout/Sniper and Force Reconnaissance communities as well as State Police emergency response and EOD teams.
Our instructors leverage this experience while continuing to hone their personal development through training, deployments, call outs, and competitions to include 1st place and top 5 finishes at the U.S. Army International Sniper Competition, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Sniper Competition, the Gastonia Sniper Conference and the 2018 King of Two-Mile competition.

Setting us apart from any other training facility, our wind course is just 20 miles from the summit of Mt. Washington, the site of the second highest wind speed on record. We are nestled in between two intersecting valleys, creating one of the most unique and challenging long range shooting environments in the world. The course has over 100 pieces of steel targetry emplaced from 350-1050 yards that can be engaged from over a dozen field firing positions.
Ridgeline benefits greatly from a strategic partnership with our neighbor, Team O’Neil, where we have over a dozen ranges located aboard their facility. The property is 583 acres of alpine terrain, featuring elevation changes up to 500+ feet over 6+ miles of roads, including 2 separate 300-foot diameter gravel skid pads. Roads consist of 50+ different types and combinations of corners with blind crests and junctions, nearly all of which allow for live-fire while underway.
Future, Planned Construction:
Pro Shop • Rogers Range with integrated vehicle engagement capabilities • CONEX Sniper tower with climbing and rappelling wall • Breaching facility including mechanical, • ballistic, thermal and explosive capabilities • Multi-story live fire shoot house • Bunkhouse that will accommodate up to 30 guests
We believe that a facility’s infrastructure should not curtail your training abilities. This is why we have put decades of firearms and tactics training experience into ensuring that our ranges won’t hinder your abilities and can provide a superior, comprehensive training experience.
