Ski Loon

Loon’s easy and intermediate trails give great satisfaction for every student, with widened ski areas giving them plenty of space to practice their turns. Loon is renowned for being one of the most reliable ski resorts in New Hampshire for snow.

With a ski area that spans three peaks and one of New Hampshire’s most reliable snow record, it’s no wonder school groups love Loon. Loon has a wonderful slow-skiing area on Bear Claw giving beginners the reassurance they need, intermediates can head higher for more challenging trails.

With our New Hampshire Ski Safaris you can combine your trip to Loon with neighbouring resorts including Cannon, Waterville Valley or Bretton Woods.

Skiing

Those new to skiing will feel safe in the Family Ski Zone on Bear Claw – a slow skiing and riding area. Beginners are well catered for here whilst intermediates will benefit from the addition of some more challenging trails at the summit. Experts aren’t left out with some amazing skiing on the North Peak, and a selection of award-winning terrain parks and pipes.
