Photogenic Fall

We’ve enjoyed an extremely photogenic fall season here at Loon, with some of the most colorful, long-lasting foliage we’ve seen in years. The foliage is past peak now, but it was amazing while it lasted.

With fall gradually yielding to winter, we’re keeping a close eye on the forecast. Once Mother Nature gives us a healthy stretch of cold weather, we’ll fire up the snow guns. Once that happens, we’ll give you a shout. Until then, take a minute to enjoy these fall photos, taken here at Loon from late September to late October.

Check out the video, get stoked, and get […]

Fall Foliage

Today is the last day of September, and the foliage here in the White Mountains is a kaleidoscopic mix of consciousness-altering neon. The surrounding mountains will likely hit peak foliage by next weekend, so get up here while you can! The Gondola runs daily from 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., with a ziplining and a […]
