Mountain Report

Last night's blink-and-you'll-miss-it snowstorm dumped 1" of heavy, wet snow at the base and closer to 4" up top - giving us a great day of vintage late-winter skiing and riding. 

That new snow groomed out really well last night, giving us creamy, silky-smooth corduroy across a good deal of the mountain this morning. And temperatures on the hill today were the warmest we've seen in nearly two months, with the thermometer topping 40 degrees at the base once the sun appeared this afternoon. After the cold and snowy winter we've had, it felt amazing out there.

I hope you had a chance to soak up some sun today, because winter is set to return tomorrow. Thursday is looking like a typical early-March day here on the mountain, with snow showers, highs in the teens, and excellent coverage on 59 trails and 357 acres of terrain. Today's wet snow should morph into tomorrow's fast and crisp corduroy, while ungroomed trails like Triple Trouble, Big Dipper, Ripsaw, and the glades will be a mix of soft snow topped by a slight crust created by today's mild weather. It should be fun out there tomorrow, so grab your gear and get up here. Winter won't last forever, so make the most of it!

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+.

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.

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.

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.
