You know the saying, ‘Good things come to those who wait?’ Well good things finally came our way. On Thursday, January 12 we picked up 4-6 inches of snow. Yes, SNOW, you know, that white fluffy stuff that falls from the sky and makes everyone smile? And today, even though it was a rocky start, we have picked up two inches of snow so far and it’s still coming down as I type.
Yesterday was a great day on the hill. Check out this video that we shot. It was fresh tracks, and fresh snow all day long!
Thanks to our amazing high efficient Low-E HKD tower snow guns, our fabulous snowmaking and grooming team have been working around the clock as temperatures allow to resurface and open more terrain. More terrain is expected to open tomorrow and we expect to have 97% of our total trail acreage open for the long weekend. I think that’s pretty amazing considering the winter we have had so far. With 50 trails, 322 acres, and over 24 miles of skiing and riding for all abilities where else would you want to be to celebrate Independence Weekend at Loon Mountain.
This is a big weekend for us and we want our guests to have a good time and stay safe. Be sure to check out all the events going on this Independence Weekend. And in conjunction with Independence Weekend, NSAA Safety Week starts tomorrow and lasts until Sunday, January 22. From Free Ski & Snowboard Tips, to helmet demos, and Cash Cabin, Loon Mountain’s Safety Week is sure to blow your socks off. Stop by the Safety Week Headquarters Tent by The Shred Shed to see what we have planned during Safety Week.
Enjoy the long weekend of skiing, watching football, and staying safe. We’ll see you on the hill.
