What's New This Year: Loon Mountain is gearing up for its 34th season.
More tree skiing- There are an additional seven acres of trees to ski and ride through just off Bear Claw. This is an intermediate area that will serve as a good warm up before heading over to the North Peak and the 15 acres opened up over there last year.
Adventure Center- If it’s not on the slopes, then it’s at the Adventure Center. It’s the place to rent cross-country equipment, snowshoes, and ice skates. Test your skills on the NEW indoor climbing wall. The outdoor ice rink will be doubled in size, and on weekends and holidays, the Adventure Center will host family activities, bon-fires and chats with the Mountain Man, Wajoid.
Tubing Hill-This pint-size tubing area will be located next to the Adventure Center and is perfect for the wee-ones. Loon also offers lift-served day and night tubing on Little Sister and Snubber, respectively.
