Among the reasons to ski Loon are, the most snowmaking in NH, the most lodging options in the skiers’ town of Lincoln, and three unique mountain peaks to ski. Loon is NH's second-largest ski resort, with Bretton Woods being the biggest. With over 370 acres spread across three peaks served by 12 lifts, Loon has lots to offer skiers and riders from long groomed boulevards to tight tree-lined trails that twist and turn down the mountain, and several edgy terrain parks.

Loon is a pretty rad spot located in New Hampshire. Definitely has the best parks in the state. They have a huge focus on park building and it shows. The mountain also has a ton of trail options for non jibbers and jumpers. Fun for all in New England!... More

Loon is a nice big mountain, but it tends to draw a crowd, and a bit more of the crowd that flocks (pun intended) to ski resorts in their Land Rovers and Mercedees, more concerned about the apres and the groomers than the powder and the trees. I've been there for half price... More

Going there as a kid, I only have good memories. The trails were typically well maintained and the staff was always friendly and available to help. I would definitely come back sometime.

Loon is a favorite for the terrain because it too has a little bit of everything. The gondola helps on cold days. Their blue terrain is worthy of caution and the black diamonds will give you a thrill. The view from the top looking toward Mount Washington is stunning.
