A Beautiful Skyride with a Delicious End

Hi there!

Today I decided to take a ride up the Gondola Skyride to the summit to take a few pictures and to have lunch at the Summit Cafe.  Since this is my first summer working at Loon, I have not had the privilege to see the mountain in the summer.  As we rode up the Gondola, I noticed that the slopes were not covered in white but in luscious green – it was beautiful to see the mountain in a different light. 

When we reached the summit, the jungle gym was covered with day campers from the A.D.A.P.T day camp visiting Loon Mountain for the day.  Children in bright blue t-shirts climbed and played as their counselors looked on.  With Sunset in the background and a view of Mount Washington, what a perfect spot to have a jungle gym.

Four cement walls of a new foundation stand where the old Ski Patrol Headquarters used to be.  This summer we are building a new Ski Patrol Headquarters for the upcoming winter season.  This will be a great addition to the mountain for the winter.

Jamaican colors and reggae music welcomed me as I walked into the Summit Cafe.  From the Reggae Roll (Jerk Chicken, Black Beans, Corn, Peppers, Onions in a Tomato Wrap with Mango Chutney and Lettuce) and the Island BBQ (Pulled Pork with Carmelized Onions on a Warm Bun with a Chipolte Lime BBQ Sauce) to Shrimp Tacos, the Summit Cafe makes you feel like you have stepped off a plane and onto the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean.  Thirsty and over 21?  Try the Summit’s Rum Punch or Pina Colada and you’ll be sure to have a happy hike or ride down the mountain. 

If you are coming to Loon Mountain for the day, take the time to take a ride up the Gondola Skyride.  It is a beautiful time of year to enjoy the surroundings.  The views from the top are breathtaking and the food is simply delicious. 

Until next time,

Katelyn
