Full review

We skied at Loon on January 18th and had a great day despite its being a holiday weekend. What a pleasure to ski somewhere with a variety of terrain, including moguls that are big and powdery enough -- but not too big or too icy -- for an intermediate/advanced skier with creaky knees! Another plus here is that you really get a good run for your money; as another writer has noted, it takes longer to get down the mountain than to ride up.

If you arrive late morning, be prepared to be sent back to South Peak for parking -- or just go there to start with. We managed to find a parking spot at North Peak even after the lot attendants told us to go away. But next time we will just park at South Peak and try the trails there and the connecting lift.
