Reviews for Loon Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
I skied Loon a ton 10+ years ago. Was much better back then. Less crowded. Has always been more of a teenager / college mountain. Not the best terrain or grooming or conditions. But the gondola was cool and the prices were reasonable. Now it’s oversold and overhyped. Lines are too long and not justified. Might be different if terrain was a 10/10 but that’s not the case. Last minute day trip for college kids from Boston? Meh. Plan ahead better, drive another ten minutes, and hit Cannon. Or don’t. Leave it for me :)... Full Review
On our first skication this year we made the rounds through Vermont and New Hampshire ending with Loon. We always stop there last because it does not disappoint and this year was no exception. The new 8 seat lift (Kanga 8) was fast and efficient and the snow was fantastic. Wish I was there now :)... Full Review
Be aware of taking buses or renting condo's. They have taken away the buses to run people, through the busiest traffic to offsite lots. If you are staying near by, you can not get home, people are stranded all morning.... Full Review
The current plan to replace a perfectly good high speed quad with an eight person bubble chair is not well thought out. First of all the Lift ride is under six minutes so no true need being covered on such a short lift. Even before Covid the attendants do not proactively load 4 people on each chair. If they could, there would never be a bad line here so they do not need to replace this lift. At the very least the new lift should go high enough to access the tote road chair for reaching south mountain. The real problem lift is the gondola which is a super low uphill capacity lift. Even the purchase of an old used or reconditioned double or triple chair would alleviate this problem as anything would be more efficient at moving people through line quicker. I find all the employees working there to be super pleasant. The only exception being the parking lot attendants who will not give you an open spot even when it’s in Plainview once they close the main lot. ... Full Review
Horrible lift employees they hit the bar on our heads... Full Review
A lot of these reviews are for the hotel (which is not owned by Loon Mountain). This is one of the best mountains I've ever skied at and any complaint about the Mountain Club should be taken down. Loon doesn't own lodging.... Full Review
Note that none of the bad reviews have anything to do with the skiing!
Some kid with his mom's card and a smoker(?). Loon is a great ski mountain, best by far in NH!!!... Full Review
I like cruising Loon. Quick gondola ride gets you some long runs.
Seem to have raised the food prices to the exhorbatant level. I'd suggest bringing in your own nourishment.... Full Review
Worst mountain ever hands down. Went to take a day trip with my friends and I had my card but it is under my moms name because I am under 18. The person who was at the desk said I don't look like a, "moms name" and asked where she is. I told the story and she refused to sell me the ticket. After a lot of fighting she said fine and then swiped my card and said it was declined. After the hour of fighting we gave up and went to Cannon where the service is a lot more friendly and cheeper and my card got accepted. Unless Loon can fix this problem never go back there. ...
