Mountain Report

Winter officially begins at 6:03 p.m. today. Big deal! Around here, we're been enjoying awesome midwinter conditions for...well, I can't really remember for how long, it's been so long.

Today we took full advantage of those midwinter conditions on all 47 trails and 299 acres of terrain - that's a whopping 88% of our trail acreage! I found excellent snow all over the mountain today, from the steeps of Upper Walking Boss all the way to Boom Run on South Peak. Ski patrol even opened Rolling Bear, all thanks to the incredible work our snowmakers have been doing over the last week.

Those snowmakers will keep working right on through Monday morning. Their plan is to crank the guns on 7 trails tonight, including Sunset, Upper Speakeasy, and Lower Walking Boss, among others. We've got New Hampshire's most powerful snowmaking system in our corner, and plan to use it to full advantage as long as temps allow. Conditions should be excellent at first chair tomorrow, so get yourself up here and start the holidays early.

Speaking of which, don't trade slope time for last-minute holiday shopping. I can help you with that dilema: Loon/Boyne gift cards are on sale, and they make perfect winter gifts and stocking stuffers. Click HERE for details and purchases.

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.
