Resort Guide 2018: LOON MOUNTAIN

Known for award-winning parks and 2,100 feet of vertical, Loon is your resort, every day. Across three peaks, the mountain provides incredible all-natural jibs, making Loon the ideal playground for creative riders like Johnny O'Connor, Brendon Rego and Nate Carrol. Step into the parks, including the Burton Lil' Stash and you'll be riding photo-ready features top to bottom. Just two hours from Boston and 30 minutes from Plymouth State University, Loon is the everyday spot to lap the gondola with friends, "get the shot", or throw down in snowboarding's most unique events.

Flow through a full progression of award-winning terrain parks to find features small & large, including street-inspired jibs, photo-ready jump lines and New Hampshire's only Superpipe. Signature features from Thirty-Two add to a massively creative jib fleet – making everyday riding at Loon never the same.

Expect a refreshed fleet of photo-ready jibs to hit the parks this winter. Drop into new street-inspired rails on the Shapin' Shack stair set or get creative on the Public Park features (unveiled last April) as they graduate into Springboard and Loon Mountain Park. If all that sounds good, grab a new season pass like the Millennial Pass (ages 19–29) to ride Loon almost every day. And don't forget to pick up a pair of the limited edition Loon x Thirty-Two TM-Three boot available at the resort.
