the reasons to ski Loon are the most snowmaking in NH, the most lodging options
in the skiers’ town of Lincoln, and three unique mountain peaks to ski.
Loon has grown considerably in the past few years, with over $20 million
invested in snowmaking and in the opening of South Peak – an expansion in the
works since 1983 that finally opened in 2008. While skiing at Loon isn’t
anything fancy, it’s fun. Ride the Gondola from the base to Loon Peak and enjoy
classic New England trails like Flying Fox and Bear Claw. Or head over to the
highest North Peak at 3,050’ for the best views of Mount Washington and
challenging runs like Flume and Walking Boss.
newest South Peak offers half a dozen long blue and black diamond runs with
great views of the town of Lincoln served by a swift quad and a connector lift
back to the main ski area. Kids love Loon’s terrain parks, snowtubing, and the
Adventure Center with ziplining.
Loon is a great midweek vacation spot, fewer crowds, lots of condo lodging in
Lincoln and Woodstock, and plenty of great pubs, taverns, and shops – like
Lahout’s our favorite ski shop. The best place to stay is The Mountain Club at
Loon’s base, which has a fantastic Black Diamond restaurant and an outdoor
heated pool and hot tub right on the slopes. In 2012, The Mountain Club at Loon
underwent a $9 million facelift, so not only is it the most convenient place to
stay - but also now the most up to date.
Loon Mountain offer skiers and riders 2,100 vertical of skiing on 370 acres with
61 trails. 97% of which is covered in snowmaking. Loon is owned by Boyne
resorts, parent company of Sunday River and
Sugarloaf in Maine as well as
Michigan ski resorts, Big Sky Montana, Brighton in Utah, Crystal in Washington,
and Cypress in British Columbia.
