Mountain Report

We could not have asked for a better first week of the season. It brought us plenty of sunshine and enough snowmaking that we were able to nearly triple our open terrain! Belive it or not, butwe now have over 40% of the mountain open! That is quite a feat for being 8 days into the season.

Today we will have 22  trails and 152 acres of skiing and riding for all abilities stretching nearly 11 miles. Having this much open terrain before Thanksgiving must be some kind of a record. The trails will include Upper and Lower Walking Boss, Sunset, Haulback, Crosscut, Link, Exodus, Upper Bear Claw, Bear Claw Extension, Lower Bear Claw, Grand Junction, Upper Flying Fox, Upper Picked Rock, Lower Picked Rock, Rampasture, Saraparilla, Brookway, Coolidge Street and Lower Flume. The North Peak Express Quad, The White Mountain Express Gondola, Kanc Quad and Sarsaparilla Carpet will open at 8 am.

Today's forecast is calling for the sky to become partly cloudy as the day progresses. It is already 34 degrees and temperatures are expected to top out around 45. Our snowmaking team is going to be taking a break as we experience some warmer temps for a couple days, but we will fire up again as soon as the temperatures permit to expand open terrain as we head toward Thanksgiving.

Tickets

Ticket prices for Sunday are $69 Adults ages 18-64, $59 Teens ages 13-17, $49 Juniors ages 6-12 and Seniors ages 65-79. Children 5 and under and Seniors 80+ always ski and ride for free, but still need a lift ticket to access the lifts.

***Please take note that the price deadline for the College pass is next Sunday, 11/30.***

Terrain Parks
Our parks crew has been doing everything they can to keep the park offerings coming. Today we will have the park on the lower portion of Upper Flying Fox with two rails and The hikeable park in front of the Governor's Lodge with a flat box, down rail and medium jump. The hikeable park will be accessable via the Kanc Quad as well.

Events 
Cease and Desist - Saturday, November 29 
With $1,000 of cold hard cash up for grabs, hungry snowboarders and freeskiers from around New England emerge from hibernation for this early season, under-the-lights Saturday night rail jam. A live DJ will be spinning outdoors to keep the competitors and spectators juiced. For details>> http://bitly.com/1xQdG0H

Ring in the Winter - Through Tuesday, December 16
We love winter, but there are plenty of people out there who dread the cold because they can't afford warm clothing. Bring your gently used winter garments to Loon, and we'll donate them to charity in time for the holidays. The Octagon Lodge will have a container that will be designated for clothing drop off. Look for a container that is a giant gift box! For details>> http://bit.ly/1BNIYdG

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.
