Mountain Report

Another year, another excellent opening day! Today was a mild, sunny, beautiful day to get back on snow.

We enjoyed top-to-bottom skiing and riding today (including North Peak) which is pretty darn good for the first day of the season. A temperature inversion tonight will give us favorable snowmaking temps at lower elevations, with snowmaking planned for Seven Brothers, Lower Walking Boss, Lower Bear Claw, Grand Junction, Sarsaparilla, Crosscut, Upper Flying Fox, and Lower Picked Rock. It looks like we may even open Seven Brothers tomorrow, adding a bit more terrain to our plate just in time for Turkey Day.

Lift ticket prices for Thursday will be $49 for all ages. We'll have a legit  2,100 vertical feet of early-season terrain for your Thanksgiving carving (had to put a Thanksgiving pun in there somewhere), running from the top of North Peak to the Gondola base. Tomorrow's weather is predicted to be partly to mostly sunny, so you might not want to put that sunscreen away just yet. Our weather gurus call for mild temps tomorrow, with a predicted high of 49. We're expecting Frozen Granular and Loose Granular conditions tomorrow morning, which should soften up a bit later in the day with all of the sun. All ingredients for a fun day of skiing!

We sure are glad to see you all back here for what should be one epic winter season!

Terrain Parks
We've got good news for all of you shredders. Our hard-working park crew has two features on Grand Junction, a down-rail and a flat box, just a little something to help shake off those summer cobwebs. Curious what wild features the park crew have up their sleeves for this year? Don't miss out on Cease and Desist after Thanksgiving and come get a taste for yourself!


Nov. 28 - Cease and Desist
This post-Thanksgiving rail jam is one killer event you won't want to miss. Catch your first glimpse at brand-new features, crafted by Loon Mountain Park staff, and charge after the $1000 cash purse. Come watch some talented skiers and riders hit crazy features or throw down with them for a chance earn some cold, hard cash for tricks, all while a live DJ spins outside to keep crowd hyped up!

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.
