New Hampshire’s Loon Mountain opened its 425’ long superpipe Thursday, making it the first superpipe to open in New Hampshire and the third to open on the East Coast.
“Building the pipe is a huge commitment that takes a lot of man power and resources,” said Terrain Park Manager Brian Norton. “We give a lot of credit to our snowmaking and grooming team and we are stoked to have the first superpipe open in New Hampshire.”

In addition to the superpipe opening, the Burton Progression Park also opened this week on Dropline, which offers new park riders and skiers a place to learn new skills, park etiquette and to become comfortable in a park environment.
Loon offers a full progression of award-winning terrain parks that range from the Progression Park all the way up to the signature Loon Mountain Park that features a 12-foot tall wall ride and the Shaping Shack Street Hubba. Loon also hosts a full calendar of park events, including Last Call, 2 Plank to the Bank and Droppin’ In Women’s Ski & Snowboard Camp, presented by Oakley.
Loon’s park lineup also includes a new Air Bag, open Friday through Monday. Participants must have a valid lift ticket or season pass, a Park Education and Etiquette (PEEPs) Pass, and wear a helmet to use the Big Air Bag. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in the Snow Tubing Center.
