Terrain

Loon Mountain ski resort offers a rare combination of convenience, spectacular beauty and adventure. It offers skiers and boarders 61 trails and 8 tree-skiing areas that wind down 2,100 vertical feet spread across 370 exhilarating acres of skiable terrain. Loon is home to six award-winning terrain parks that benefit from constant upkeep from the park crew. This includes two parks just for kids: Lil’ Stash and Burton Riglet Park. Loon's Superpipe is 425 feet long with 18-foot walls – and it’s the only Superpipe in New Hampshire. Cross-country skiers and snowshoers have access to 20 kilometers of trails that run along the Pemigewasset River.

Loon Mountain has 11 lifts, including a 4-person gondola, which serves its 3 peaks. The summit elevation tops out at 3,050 feet (with a base of 950 feet) and sees an average annual snowfall of 160 inches bolstered by snowmaking on 99% of trails (322 acres). The trail stats are 20% beginner, 60% intermediate and 20% advanced. The longest trail is Upper and Lower Bear Claw, which is two and half miles long. Night skiing is available until 7:00 pm on most days.

The resort was envisioned in 1960 during construction of the Kancamagus Highway when Sherman Adams, former New Hampshire governor, saw more than just a road but the opportunity to build a great ski resort and mountain destination.

During the day or night, head to Little Sister Trail, and take advantage of lift-served snow tubing. Loon Mountain has a ski and snowboard school for visitors of all levels. There are children’s camps for kids three and up, and women-specific programs.
