Mountain Report

After plowing through a very snowy February here at the mountain, the first day of March started out with comfortable temperatures and excellent skiing and riding.

While the day began a bit on the chilly side, temperatures quickly rose into the mid-20s to give us some nice, grippy packed powder across all three peaks. The consistently cold and snowy weather we've enjoyed over the last month (42" of snow in February and virtually no above-freezing temperatures) has given us day after day of truly good skiing and riding. With a deep snowpack in place and 59 trails currently open (that's 97% of the mountain) we're perfectly positioned to enjoy March and all the bluebird days and goggle tans it will surely bring. 

But we can wait a little while longer for springlike weather. Old Man Winter should give us a nice refresh tonight, with 1-3" possible by first chair Monday morning. We're not expecting a mega pow day, but a bit of fresh snow is just what the doctor ordered to refresh natural snow terrain and restock our supply of freshly-groomed packed powder. Please keep in mind that the winds will pick up at around midday on Monday, so you'll want to check the snow report tomorrow and follow @loonmtn on Twitter for all the latest lift status updates throughout the day.

And if you're more than ready for springtime, you'll be psyched to know that classic spring events like ‘80s Day, the Slushpool Party, and the Cardboard Box Race are right around the corner. Spring is a great time to ski and ride here at Loon, so stock up on the SPF and get yourself up here.

Events & Activities

First Ascent - Thursday, Mar. 5
A serene morning trek up to the summit of North Peak, using your feet - not a chairlift. Catch stunning views from Loon's highest peak and bask in fresh tracks down Upper & Lower Walking Boss. Then cap it off with a mid-mountain breakfast at Camp III - you've earned it.

Bunyan's Legendary Nights: Old School Hip Hop Night - Saturday, Mar. 7
Drop in to the Bunyan Room for a night of old-school hip hop straight from the turntable of DJ That NINJAH. Dance to classics from The Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Flash, and other hip hop immortals for the most beatboxingest Bunyan's Legendary Nights, ever. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. No cover, 21+.

The Ice Castle is open and definitely worth checking out (especially at night)! Bring your valid lift ticket or season pass, and you'll save $2 on admission. The Ice Castle is located just east of I-93 at the Hobo Railroad.

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.
