Loon Mountain

With 96% snow making and an average 10 feet of natural snowfall each season, Loon is usually open by mid-November and can continue operation into May. The resorts offer a popular no quibble lift ticket replacement if you're unhappy about your skiing experience at Loon before. If so, you'll be in the minority as this is the most popular destination for New Hampshire's own residents. Out of state residents arrive mainly from the south, as Loon is one of the easiest resorts to reach from Boston, two hours drive away. The resort's 8 lifts serve a 2,100 foot vertical which contains a variety of terrain suitable for all abilities. There is an unusual four-seater gondola, as well as a high speed quad and two triple chairs. Two thirds of the runs here are suited to intermediate cruisers, with a fifth of the terrain immaculately groomed on gentle slopes for beginners. There are 35km of cross country trails through the National Forest.

Pros: Accesibility and variety

Cons: Expensive

Loon is a nice mountain in NH. Easy day trip from Boston. Most of the drive is on I93 except the last two miles through Lincoln. Because of this they get a lot of traffic from Boston. So be ready for long lift lines. It is a combination of couple peaks. I like South Peak better. Not as crowded as the others and had nice blue and black runs. But you need to take the Tote road lift to get in and get out of South Peak. North peak is similar to South peak but smaller vertical. They definitely need a bigger gondola cabin for the main mountain. Fours gondola is extremely slow and gets crazy long lines. Why not replace that with 8s? Prefer Seven Brothers+East Basin or North Peak quad to access the summit.


Now the negative side. It is expensive. They do offer frequent skier cards but 83$/day is little too much Loon's size. Apart from the lifts, food and drinks are not cheap either. I think they set their prices based on their accessibility. People like driving on highways and Loon is easy to access. So charge more! So I am dropping a star for the cost of skiing at Loon.


Edit 3/9/2015: Learned about their 29$ Sunday afternoon deals two weeks ago. Not valid on Sunday during the season (for example, MLK/Presiden'ts weekeend) but otherwise it is an excellent deal. They don't sell these tickets until 12pm but get there little early, change your clothes, eat your lunch, and ski non-stop from noon to until they close.


Pros: Grooming, Accessibility, Terrain Variety, Lifts

Cons: Crowds, Price

I have stayed right at Loon a couple times and have been very satisfied with the experience, it is a bit pricier than some other areas with comparable terrain, but I still enjoy the area a lot. The mountain has a nice variety in terrain and is laid out in a manner that you can avoid crowds if you figure it out. The North Peak is good for avoiding crowds and has the best terrain in my opinion. There is an unadvertised pull off into the woods on the North Peak as well that goes to a bird sanctuary about 100 yards off the trail where there is a natural bench made from a tree and with some bread will attract hundreds of birds. You ski in and out into the woods and back on to the trail.


They do a good job at grooming and seem to keep the mountain in good shape with only a handful of trails icing over come the end of the day. The recent addition of the South Peak has been great as well. The lift service is superb as well. They have High Speed Lifts and a four person Gondola that serve most of the mountain. It is also extremely accessible being right off the Kancamagus Highway. This leads to the crowds, but does make it convenient. The issue with that is that the lift line for the Gondola and Kancamagus Quad can be lengthy during peak season. This is easy to avoid by skiing on the less accessed South and North Peaks.


The mountain is not far from the town of Lincoln which has some very good restaurants and shops. Loon has nice slope side accommodations across the street at the Village of Loon; on the mountain; as well as at the new South Peak resort. They have a convenient shuttle service as well. 


Pros: gondola, decent grooming, beautiful views

Cons: crowded on occasion, not super groomed

Loon is my favorite NH mountain. The gondola is a relief in windy or snowy/cold weather. The north side chairs take you to some really nice trails.

Angel Street and other steep trails are fun. The upland lake is beautiful. Close to Boston, great terrain.


Pros: Challenging double black, great amenities, nice town, good conditions, 2 parks, awesome mountain!

Loon mountain is my favorite mountain! It has something for everyone.. easy greens for beginners and double black diamonds in the woods for those experts! It is a great place for families, or for individuals. It is well groomed and kept. I can't recommend this mountain enough
