We’re just a few weeks removed from our snowiest winter in a nearly decade, and we’ve already begun preparing for summer. And we won’t have to wait long until things really get cooking: Loon Mountain will be open for summer activities starting Memorial Day Weekend.*
Haven’t visited us during the summer before? We’ve got you covered. Here are five things we’re really looking forward to over the next few months:
Bike more, sweat less. That’s the idea behind our new fleet of rental e-bikes, which give you a gentle assist as you pedal. How does it work? A compact SyncDrive motor delivers smooth and instantaneous power that blends seamlessly with your own pedaling power. That means you’ll ride stronger and longer with more inspiration – and less perspiration.
- Super Adventure Passes
A lot of attractions in the White Mountains specialize in just one thing, be it ziplines, ropes courses, or jaw-dropping scenery. Luckily, Loon has it all – and the Super Adventure Pass lets you enjoy it all. For just $74 (or $64 for kids ages 7-12) you’ll enjoy a scenic Gondola Skyride, zipline across the Pemigewasset River, and reach new heights in the Aerial Forest Adventure Park. There are a whole bunch of other activities included in the pass, but I’m tired of typing. Check out the full list of summer activities here.
- New England Brewfest (June 23-25)
At New England Brewfest, we combine two of our favorite things: beer and mountains. You won’t want to miss the Saturday Night: ON Tap tasting event here at Loon, where you’ll sample beers from more than 30 New England breweries and enjoy a beautiful summer evening in the White Mountains. Remember to drink responsibly, bring a designated driver, and have fun.
- Touch-A-Truck (July 16, Aug. 6, Aug. 27)
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that kids love trucks. We happen to own a whole bunch of trucks, which is why we’re hosting several Touch-a-Truck days this summer. You’ll get up close and personal with the trucks, snowcats, telehandlers, and the other hulking masses of machinery that keep Loon running strong through all four seasons. The best part? It’s free.
There’s nothing like fall in the White Mountains. For peak fall foliage, you’ll want to visit us from late September through Columbus Day Weekend. Fall is also when we enjoy some of the best events of the year, including the New Hampshire Highland Games & Festival (Sept. 15-17) and White Mountain Oktoberfest (Oct. 7-8). And while you’re peeping all that foliage, remember to snag your season pass by Oct. 9 to take advantage of fall pricing.
*Loon Mountain will be open for summer activities Saturday, May 27 through Monday, May 29. The resort will be open weekends only through June 16. Daily operations will begin June 17.
