LINCOLN, NH December 23, 2010 — New Hampshire’s Loon Mountain opened its 425′ superpipe to the public today making it the first superpipe to open on the East Coast.
The Resort is in great shape for holiday week guests with over 270 acres, 20 miles and 80% of the mountain open. This year’s addition of 428 additional highly-efficient Low-E HKD tower snow guns, the largest installation of this latest technology in New England, has allowed the Resort to open more terrain earlier in the season and more terrain is slated to open next week.
This is the earliest the Resort has been able to offer a superpipe and it also has three of its award-winning terrain parks open, including the top section of the signature Loon Mountain Park.
“Building the pipe is a huge commitment and takes a lot of man power,” said Brian Norton, Loon’s Terrain Park Manager. “We give a lot of credit to our snowmaking and grooming team and we are stoked, not only to be the first mountain in the East to have a superpipe open, but also to have it for the holiday week. This really shows our dedication to offering a great experience for park and pipe riders and skiers. ”
