Mountain Report

Any week that starts with new snow is a good week. Luckily for us, that's exactly what happened today, with light but consistent snowfall giving us 2" of new snow at the summit by this afternoon.

While I wouldn't go so far as to call it a powder day, the snow that did fall today was more than enough to keep things fresh across all 39 trails and 212 acres of terrain. Since it's been such a snowy December (with more than 2 feet accumulating since the month began) it doesn't take much to keep conditions in top form. If you couldn't make it up here today, don't worry; it's still snowing, and we may pick up another 1-2" in time for first chair on Tuesday.

Speaking of first chair, we plan to run a total of 5 lifts on Tuesday, including the Gondola, North Peak Express Quad, Kancamagus Express Quad, Kissin' Cousin Double, and Sarsaparilla Carpet. Our grooming team plans to hit all trails tonight, so there should be plenty of soft, grippy corduroy when the lifts open at 9 a.m. Looking a bit further into the future, it's looking highly likely that we'll open some new terrain later this week. Our snowmakers have taken full advantage of the recent cold weather to blast a whole bunch of snow on South Peak, and the snowmaking whales over there are simply ginormous. If all goes well, we should be able to open South Peak later this week. As always, you'll want to check back here for updates over the next few days for all the latest.

Terrain Parks

Springboard is open for business with some added features, including 5 jibs, 3 snow features, and 5 jumps of varying size. We also have a Top Secret park on Lower Picked Rock with 4 jibs and a jump, and a couple of jibs open slopeside by the Mountain Club. Our parks crew is currently working on to build features in Loon Mountain Park and Little Sister, so stay tuned for updates.

There's also the new College Silver New England Pass, another great option for full-time college students. 

Once you've locked in your New England Pass, you should snag a M.A.X. Pass Add-On. The Add-On will give you 5 days each at the other 41 participating M.A.X. Pass resorts. That's 205 days at some of the best resorts across North America - with absolutely no blackout dates.


Join us for a special Tree Lighting Christmas Eve Service at the Governor Adams Lodge. Get into the Christmas Spirit with Christmas carols and a nondenominational candlelight service hosted by Loon Mountain Ministry. We'll even light a Christmas tree, so Santa and his reindeer will have no trouble finding us. Don't forget to enjoy the free cookies, hot cocoa, and coffee!
December 30: Camp III Snowshoe and S'mores Après Party
When the lifts shut down for the day, you'll ride up the Seven Brothers Triple, and then take a guided snowshoe tour down to our rustic Camp III lodge. After working up an appetite, you'll feast on a delectable spread of hors d'oeuvres, hot cocoa - and s'mores, of course. As evening turns to night, enjoy a moonlit snowshoe down Brookway back the Octagon Lodge.
December 31: Bunyan's Legendary New Year's Eve Bash

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.
