Lincoln, New Hampshire—Don’t put away those snowboards and ski’s just yet, Loon Mountain is putting on one more terrain park bash on Saturday, May 6, with the annual Hike and Huck. Although the lifts are closed, there will be plenty of snow left in the terrain park to host one more jump and rail contest.
Registration for the event is from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Octagon Lodge and the event is open to skiers and riders of all ages. Competitors will be broken up into separate divisions and all contestants will be charged a registration fee of $25 that includes a hike & huck ticket and a barbeque lunch. Qualifying runs will begin at 11 a.m. where contestants will have to impress the judges to make it to the finals. Following a BBQ lunch at the Yurt, skiers and riders will compete in a best trick contest on a selected rail. Cash prizes will be awarded to the winners of each open division.
Loon Mountain will begin its summer operations on Saturday, June 24, with the Gondola Skyride, glacial cave exploration, mountain biking and indoor and outdoor climbing walls. The Loon Mountain Gondola Skyride is the longest aerial lift in NH, traveling 7,000 feet, and offers breathtaking views of the White Mountains and beyond.
