Mountain Information Loon Summer Safety
Loon Mountain Summer Adventure Essentials
Having fun is a top priority at Loon Mountain, but we also want you to stay safe. Take a minute to read through a few safety suggestions that will help you make the most out of your visit to Loon this summer.
WEAR SUNSCREEN: Apply sunscreen to protect yourself from harmful UV rays summer. You’ll spare yourself a painful sunburn, and help prevent skin cancer.
HYDRATE: You’ll need to drink lots of water when you’re climbing through the Aerial Forest Adventure Park, bouncing on the bungee trampoline, or biking through the mountains. The average person should drink 64 ounces of water a day – the equivalent of 8 glasses of water, or a half-liter for every mile hiked. Dehydration can cause headaches, heat stroke, and heat exhaustion.
BE PREPARED: As the saying goes, "If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait a minute." The weather in the White Mountains is always changing, so be sure to bring extra clothing and a rain jacket. Check current weather conditions in Lincoln, NH.
HIKING & SWIMMING: Always hike and swim with a friend. Create a designated meeting area in case anyone in your party gets lost or injured. If you do get lost, stay where you are. Pick up an Emergency Contact Card at the Gondola, Adventure Center, or Loon Mountain Sports.
HIKING: If you’d like to hike down the mountain after taking the gondola to the summit, please stay on the dirt work road.
BICYCLE SAFETY: The White Mountain National Forest DOES NOT permit mountain biking on any of the ski trails. When biking on our designated bike paths, please WEAR A HELMET!
WILDLIFE: We are not alone. The White Mountains are home to many wild animals, including moose, deer, black bear, fox, and many other creatures. If you spot an animal, please let it be and leave the area as quietly as possible. Do not feed the animals. For more information on New Hampshire wildlife, visit http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/
NO ONE LIKES STUBBED TOES: Wear closed-toed shoes when participating in outdoor activities at Loon Mountain. Your feet will thank you.
LEAVE NO TRACE: If you bring it in, take it out. Help us keep the mountains clean – every little bit helps!
BUG DOPE: Let’s face it: bugs are annoying. If you’re hiking or biking in the woods this summer, do yourself a favor and apply bug spray before venturing outdoors.
EMERGENCY: In case of a medical emergency, please call 911.
