Full review

I really like this place, I just hope my dentist doesn't stop handing out free lift tickets here! Weekends are crowded though. Most of the lifts are fast and those slow ones are ways to get away from the crowds. South Peak is also generally less crowded than the main area. Loon has a lot of variety to their terrain. For the classic New England trail try out Speakeasy, if you want something you can just let your skis rip out some nice wide GS turns there's Upper Rumrunner, Walking Boss, Flume, Ripsaw, Cruiser, Big Dipper, and in a way, Boom Run. My favorite glade is Mike's Way with it's narrow entrance and how it just opens up to paradise! For mogul mashers there's the side of flume, Angel Street, Rolling Bear, Northstar, and lower Lower Speakeasy. The layout is nice, how you can pretty easily get from place to place. The views are pretty amazing on a bluebird day, too. I wouldn't necessarily want to go here too often because of prices and crowds, but Loon is a pretty great ski area, especially for intermediates.
