Hope you're all enjoying your summer. Cease and Desist is just 4 months away! Check back soon for the teaser release of our new park movie...Wicked Fun! The new flick will be out this fall, its got some super shredding in it. Hopefully you'll find it entertaining.
Summer jib projects will soon be under way and man do we have some pretty awesome things planned! For now enjoy the surfing, skating, and sunshine.....Cease and Desist (formerly known as Thanksjibbing or The Contest Formerly Known As...) is just 5 months away!!!
Some time off was nice. Back to work. We start jib projects soon. Lots of cool stuff going down this summer. Oh, by the way... Loon has been invited to build at Superpark. So keep an eye out for that.
It's all over. Thanks for the great season. Have a fantastic summer. Remember to buy your season pass for next season before rates go up. See you at the top of tucks.
LAST DAY. Its snowing and sunny. Weird. We spent some extra time on the hill last night cutting the pipe and rebuilding all the take-offs so the park would be premo for the last day. Come enjoy the park on its last day with us. See you out there.
The end is upon us but we haven’t given up on you guys yet. We just added some pretty cool rail features on Little Sister for the last weekend. Have fun.
Season is nearing it's end. Be here or be Square. That's right...I called you a SQUARE! Despite the recent rain the snow is awesome and the park has plenty of good snow left!
The snow has been super fun! We are wrapping up a couple photo shoots tomorrow and we'll have the main park back in action for this weekend. Come get some!
Sorry for the lack of updates. Still busy shoveling. The Weekend With 382 went off despite the weather. Thanks to everyone who showed up for the last two big contests of the season. It's photo shoot season and the bottom of the main park will be closed for most of the week for a photo shoot and a park rebuild.
Last Call Is Tomorrow! I heard a rumor that Chumbawamba is opening for Creed at the after party. Should be sick.
Last Call build continues. The bottom of the park remains closed. The weather looks stellar for the big day [3/25]. Don't miss it. Lodging deals are available for that night at the Indian Head Hotel. Just mention Last Call.
We start our build for Last Call this Saturday. That means the bottom section of the main park will be closed We will have snowcats operating in the bottom of the park so please don’t duck any ropes. The Bottom section of the park will be closed till after Last Call. Wednesday is the big day so come and ride.
Rep Showdown was awesome. Wakeling killed it. I don't think Nelson would have had a chance even if he did show up. Shop Showdown was epic as well. Team LaHouts took home the trophy for the first time. Congrats. I am sure it will be proudly displayed in the shop. Go check it out. This week should be spectacular. Come hang with us... well not with us we will be salting and raking so its good for you.
Soft snow today. Sunny days ahead. New rails on the hill. Fun contests this weekend. New hoodies are in. Spring halfpipe sessions to be had. Need I say more.
Conditions were sick this afternoon. Spring is here. Come get some.
Arriving today, the sun shining and the winds calm in comparison to last night, I knew my day could only get better. My first laps down the mountain revealed pristine groomers at my disposal, fit for face dragging pleasure. Arriving at the LMP after screaming through Flying Fox, I found the conditions to be unparalleled with each feature I attempted. Perfect lips, epic hips, honey dips and funny tricks were flowing from my body like water over rocks. Interested in similar sensations? Well come on up to Loon, and you never know what will happen! You will certainly be smiling more than when you arrived!
Main Event Finals were sick under the lights last night. Everyone got extreme. The mountain is in surprisingly good shape with all the rain and with another 6-10" of snow on the way for tonight into tomorrow its only gonna get better. See you out there.
It's snowing all ready. Come get some.
"Red Bull Butter Cup" TONIGHT. It's free. You can't afford not to come. And don’t forget to check out the rail in the top of the main park. This thing is legit.
Fluorescent Nights. Come join the fun under the lights on the Little Sister Trail. Not only is is night riding but its night park riding. And Yes! We groom it before we open for the night time session so everything is perfect.
Happy Valentines Day Ladies. Today is Salomon Jib Academy and tomorrow is Open Season Finals. This will be the last Open Season Event ever so come and ski/ride or at least come for the blowout product toss. Plus all competitors are automatically entered into a prize raffle.
The conditions have been crazy good the past few days. Yesterday may have been the best day of the season. Sorry to everyone who came to ride the park yesterday. We had to close the bottom jump line down for a photo shoot with OnBoard Magazine for 2 hours. If you got to see any of the action, it was pretty heavy and with a man like Espen Lystad behind the lens they should have gotten some good stuff. Come ride before vacation week starts.
Sorry for the lack of updates. The supernet has been down for a while. We have added a couple smaller features in the main park. Come check them out. The new "tree tappy spinny thingy" is super fun. If it doesnt get chopped in half by the end of the season we will be disapointed in all of you. So, do your part and chop away at it every run as you spin past it. Good Luck. Oh and there is still an outstanding challenge that no one has completed. Read the past entries to find out more.
Check out this link I found on the superweb. After the Vans Mini-Cup. The judges came up at night for a little boardin sesh. The video is pretty OK. http://snowboardermag.tv/tv/235/video-Mt.-Loon-Night-Shoot--mid-12681-vid-581-cID--c--page-newest.html
Finishing touches on the park. Come ride Friday. Park looks sick and with all the new snow the landings will be fluffy. See you out there. -Management-
The Bat Wing and the new Up-set open tomorrow morning. If you were here today you now what I am talking about but if you weren't... come find out. Plus 10"-15" headed our way for tomorrow afternoon. -Management-
Snowmaking has finished up in the Main Park and the massive push has begun. Look for big things to come and stay tuned for updates on when it opens.
Final snowmaking assault on the main park has begun. When snowmaking ends building begins. look for the main park and mini pipe to be open soon. And thanks to all the shops and guys from Nitro for coming out for Shop Day.
Parks, Parks, and more Parks. Little Sister Park and the Burton Progression park are open for business. With the fresh snow from yesterday both locations are primed and lookin sweet. Don't forget about the challenge.
Dang its cold! Challenge - Go Caballerial Dead Mans Cliff and earn yourself a fantastic prize from the park staff. Of course you will need proof. If you don't know what that is go do some research and if you don't know here it is ask your friends. -Management-
Vans Mini Cup couldn't have gone off any better. The set up was sick and over 100 kids rolled up for the event. Thanks go out to all that came to ride. Just cause you missed the event doesn't mean you will miss the set up. It's on hill and gonna be set up for a while. So come ride! -Management-
Vans Mini Cup this Saturday. The guys just got off the hill for the night and the set up looks so sick. Couple more things to put in tomorrow before the big day. Best set up to date. Oh and the stunt ditch got a major face lift over the past two days and should be premo when it opens. -Management-
Finishing my tasks here at Loon Mountain, how can I describe today's antics without the word EPIC! Not only was the glorious sun shining down on us as we lapped the mountain, but the snow had made a conscious effort to return to it's former state of beauty. Fit for face dragging carves and endless laughter, the park continues to grow feature by feature, with the addition of the new Flat-Up-Flat bar which is posted side by side with the LMP's infamous Down-Flat-Down rail. Both waiting in anticipation of Loon's Local Lurker's technical trickery. With the Vans Mini Cup approaching fast, you'll find our mustached park staff prepping the setup, with visions of organized chaos dancing in their heads! Be here on January 10th to catch all the action. Holla at your favorite hill. ---T.P.S.A
Happy New Year dudes and dudettes! We are putting some more jibs in tonight....oh yeah!! You've got to love new stuff. Snow and sun are in the forecast for the up and coming days, so get up here and get some. Remember Vans Mini Cup is the 10th so come par-take in the festivities.
Get out here and ride. Its your last chance to boost some huge air this year. See everyone at the Bunyan Room New Year's Party tonight. Oh and don't forget to sign up for the Vans Mini Cup.
The Superpipe is OPEN, and it's the only one this side of the Hudson River!! Shad is still working hard on it every night to get out a couple of little kinks, but it's a great ride!
The 3rd Annual ReLoonion went down yesterday. No one got maced. Tons of people showed for a grand ole time. Thanks to everyone that made it here. See you all next year on the 26th.
Top of the main park is open and fabulous. Dude tube is coming shortly.
Stay Home. That way there is more pow for us. It's snowing like the inside of a snow globe after a little kid hopped up on Ritalin and Red Bull shook it. No Friends On A Pow Day! -management-
12.20.08 afternoon update
Here is the latest. Due to snowmaking needs we have stopped pushing the top section of the park and concentrated our efforts on the superpipe so we can get that to you sooner. The park will not be far behind.
Its Still Snowing... AND, not only are we pushing the Superpipe right now so we can test out our new Zaugg pipe cutter but we are building the top half of the park as well. We plan on opening the top half of the main park for Sunday with 7 jibs and a couple jumps. Come check it out.
What a amazing day here at Loon. After yesterday's snowfall, the mountain has been replenished with a delicious layer of groomed powder, and unveiling smiles mountain wide. Little Sister is open again with a dueling jump and rail lines, ideal for honing your shred efforts. The forecast for the upcoming days shows more white gold, and that can only lead to more fun. Join us and get your shred on.
Pushing the dude tube for the next couple days. The new Zaugg cutter arrives Thursday. We are also going to finish up snowmaking in the top of the park and going to get that fully open ASAP. Check back daily for updates but its not far away. -Management-
Little Sister park is open and looking pretty. Tom finished grooming it minutes ago. The double jump line looks real nice with a hip option on the second jump. Plus we added a double down feature set up. Come check it out. -Management-
Snowing with no stop in sight. Weather reports are calling for up to 12" of fresh. Maybe I will break out my new swallowtail. Oh and Supa Grooma was has been up in Little Sister working on the trail and building a wicked bootah. -Management-
As I awoke this morning, my first glance out my window revealed what I could expect when arriving at the mountain. Soon, I found myself slashing what the sky had provided. If I had to guess, I'd call it anywhere between 2 - 6 inches of new snow, but any new cover feels great underneath my stick today. The park continues to grow, as does my anticipation of friends arriving home for the holidays, excited and hungry for the gnar. Come Get Some.....
Before it even began.... Shane "the shanesaw" Nassar stabbed the motha. Congrats. Come see me Shane, I owe you something cool. In other news--- Snowmaking continues in all of our parks. Look for some new goods this weekend. [hint... there will be jumps] -Management-
DANG! Backside 180 over dead man's gap. First one of the season. Pete Brinkerhoff from Red Bull USA stabbed the motha. Nothing better than seeing the first one of the year. Challenge… I challenge all of you to find this infamous water bar gap and back 360 it. First one to document such a maneuver will win something cool from the park staff. Proof needed of course. If you don’t know where Dead Man's Gap is located I ain't tellin you. T.P.D.
Wednesday was another epic bluebird adventure here at Loon. With the temperature hovering around the 30s, the slopes seemed almost perfect as I dragged my hand with every toeside slash. The current park setups remain the same, the "Formerly Known As" setup in place, as well as the dueling flatboxes, complete with skiers walking the line like groups of penquins marching their way across the tundra. As you ride the Gondola to the summit, eyes light up in anticipation for the coming park, the preview strewn in every direction around LMP shaper shack below. Sharpen your Gnar Knife and Come Shred with us. You wont regret it.
"The Contest Formerly Known As.." Take two goes down tonight. The course is primed and ready for riders to get radical on! Registration is from 3-4 in the Octagon and the jam starts at 5.
We're open top to bottom, so what are you waiting for? Time to get ready for The Event Formerly Known As... Nov. 28 + 29. We will have jibs on the hill for Sunday am. on Little Sister.
We continue to be in full production at the Shaping Shack! Seeing that all of the leafs have fallen from the trees, it's now crunch time. Won't be long before we have snow on the hill! Opening day is the 21st, as long as, cold weather comes in, and “The Contest Formerly Known As... kicks off on the 28th!! Get your snow sticks ready and go get your New England Pass!!
Burning the old park entrance in the rain today. Heck Yah. Almost done the Boyne Higlands Jibs. Next will be Sugarloaf's jibs, two weeks in michigan for Boyne Mountain, then more Loon jibs.
9.4.08 - BUSY.
Finishing up some of the Loon stuff so the guys can start working on building new jibs for some of our sister resorts. We got a good 2 months of that. But dont worry. We have allready completeley rebuilt 4 old jibs and built 2 new ones with at least that many more to come. We just put a rubber roof on top of the wallride. If you ever have to put a rubber roof down somewhere, just ask us, we are pro's now. The old main park entrance has been demolished and the new one is in the 2nd stage of construction. New power has been run all the way up the main park so we can use fan guns to bring the best park in the east to you faster. Oh... and when the October issue of Transworld comes out... Yeah you are gonna wanna see the goods.
8.11.08 - Rain Again...
More cutting, welding, and grinding MORE NEW JIBS. NICE. keep an eye on the EB site. You might see something you like.
8.09.08 - Hey there!
Hope everyone is having a good summer. How about a little park update? Lots of rain up here. We just lost the last bit of snow in the park 3 weeks ago. That's easily the longest there has been snow on hill since the last ice age. We have been real busy. Even though the last thing on all your minds is snow, we long ago started are winter preparations. Lots of big stuff for next year. New 18' Zaugg stunt-ditch cutter. Some new parks in bigger and better locations. Loon's big park movie release. New website on its way. Cutting apart a lot of old rails and boxes to make way more better ones. Plus we bought over 5 Gs in new steal to build more new stuff. Don't want to spoil it for you but this will be the biggest unveiling of new jibs Loon has ever seen. We will get some pics up soon, so start your guessing. For the rest of the summer we will try and keep you updated as much as possible on all the goings on around here. For now do us a favor and check out the September issue of Transworld Snowboarding and read the Angry Interns article. It is so dead on. Please make note and start putting some thought into you style for next winter.
