The Three Peaks of Loon Mountain

Loon Mountain entails three peaks: North Peak, Loon Peak, and the most recently opened South Peak. Each peak has its own base area. For the North Peak it is Octagon Lodge, for Loon Peak, Governor Adam’s Lodge, and for South Peak the Pemigewasset Base Camp.

Ski, Snowboard, and Tubing

Loon Mountain offers winter fun for downhill skiers, but also features other winter activities including: Cross Country Skiing, tubing, skating, snowshoeing, NASTAR ski course racing, and even has an area designed for disabled skiers.

The mountain offers a variety of terrains and a challenge for all skill levels, which makes it a perfect ski destination for families with different abilities. The family ski zone on Bear Claw is for slow skiing and snowboarding.

When you’re ready to pick up a little speed, they have a number of award winning terrain parks including Burton Progression Park, and Loon Mountain Park, plus a halfpipe and superpipe. Many of Loon Mountains trails can be skied by intermediate (56%), and even novice skiers can navigate 22% of the trails, because most of the trails are rated as blue trails (but there are a few green).

Transportation to Loon Mountain

The nearby quaint New England village of Loon offers plenty of lodging options, shopping, and restaurants for time off the slopes. You can catch a shuttle there that will take you between mountains.

For something different, catch the old steam train between Octagon Lodge and Governor Adams Lodge, for a ride to the slopes. No matter how you decide to get there, be sure to grab your camera when you head out to the peaks of Loon Mountain, because the views are spectacular.
