Full review

I skied Loon Weds & Th, 1/6 and 1/7/10 and really enjoyed it . Each day I headed to the lower Flume trail first thing. (upper was closed for snow making, as was Ripsaw), The first 2 runs Weds. were nice, then it got a bit scraped down. I'm a big packed power fan, as I do not use competition skis.

On TH, the first 5 runs down lower Flume were nice, then it was a bit granular/scraped down from traffic. Tons of bumps on Triple Trouble. Angel Street was nice on top on Weds, but scraped down to grass lower. They made a ton of snow up top & I'm sure the w/e was good there. Mikes Woods glade was closed.

The superpipe is fun to do - overall, Loon os a great hill for almost anyone.

I skied all over the mountain and Loon has some beautiful scenery. I couldn't see Mt Washington because of the clouds both days, but still got some great pics. The top of Loon Peak & North Peak were totally white with snow.
