Mountain Report

With 4 feet of snow so far this month, tons of open terrain, and gorgeous weather in the forecast, the next few days should give us some of the best skiing and riding of the season. Here are the details:

Snow Conditions/Grooming: Spring officially starts on Tuesday, but you could have fooled me. Thanks to the 2 feet of snow that's fallen over the last week, we're enjoying some of the best conditions of the winter. With continued cold weather over the next few days, you can expect plenty of grippy, chalky packed powder on the groomers and excellent coverage in tree skiing areas like Lower Walking Boss Woods, Bucksaw, and a whole bunch of others. 

Weather: The forecast for the upcoming week looks stellar, with bright sunshine, light winds, and cool temps. Be sure to bundle up tomorrow, as we're expecting highs in the mid-20's at the base and mid-teens at the summit. The bright March sun should take the edge off the cold temps, though, so have fun out there and remember to wear some sunscreen. You've got plenty of time to work on your goggle tan this spring, so pace yourself.

Snowmaking: We have no snowmaking plans for the immediate future. We're good.

5-Day Outlook: With sunshine and cool temps expected through midweek, the next few days should give us ideal carving conditions. The snow is in absolutely peak form right now, and the weather should keep those conditions in a perfect cryogenic stasis. If you're waiting for a warmup, temperatures should climb into the mid-30's by Tuesday - with forecasts hinting at the potential for more snow next weekend. Stay tuned.

Terrain Parks

Six terrain parks are open and stacked with 97 features - including the Superpipe, Minipipe, and a family cross course on Dropline. Check out the full parks report.

March 24 | Methodology
Hosted by Pat Moore and presented by Vans, this banked slalom concept adds a new element of competition with a double-sided hip after the finish line, allowing riders to shave time off of their run with their best Method Air. 100% of the proceeds from METHODOLOGY go towards building the Lin-Wood Skate Park.

March 31 | Red Bull All Snow
Red Bull All Snow is an open amateur contest that returns to the roots of freestyle snowboarding. All Snow's course is inspired by the hand dug half pipes and concrete skateparks of the 1970's and 1980's. There are no jibs or fabricated wallrides - in true New England fashion, all features are made of snow and ice, so come bring your A-game and shred with the best in the Northeast.

April 1 | Easter 
Load the gondola and ride to the top of Loon Peak for an Easter sunrise service. Loon Mountain Ministry hosts a non-denominational service complete with stunning views, refreshments at the Summit Café and first tracks down the mountain. Kids can follow up their sunrise service with a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed egg hunt.

Conditions may vary with weather and skier/snowboarder traffic. Be aware of changing conditions. This report is updated twice daily (morning & afternoon) and more frequently as changes on the mountain dictate. This report reflects conditions as of the time and date noted and is subject to change at any time. Conditions subsequent to the time and date of this report may be different. Lifts and trails may open or close due to weather, usage or maintenance. Reports posted after 2 p.m. reflect what is predicted for the next day and are subject to change the next morning. If a trail is marked as 'groomed,' that means that it has been groomed within the past 12 hours. If a trail is marked as 'snowmaking,' this means that it either currently has snowmaking operations underway or has been subject to snowmaking within the past 12 hours.
