Mountain Information Loon Summer Safety
Loon Mountain Summer Adventure Essentials
While enjoying the variety of summer activities we offer here at Loon, safety is our number one priority so please follow instructions and listen closely to your guide. From ziplining and hiking to biking, we want our guests to make the most of their experience here at Loon Mountain. Here are a few tips to keep you safe this summer.
WEAR SUNSCREEN: Sun protection is essential to skin cancer prevention. Wear sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and the risk of Melanoma.
HYDRATE: To prevent dehydration on hot summer days, drink plenty of water before and after any summer activity. The average person should consume 64 ounces of water a day, 1/2 liter for every mile hiked. Dehydration may cause headache, heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and even death.
BE PREPARED: As the saying goes, "If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait a minute." The weather in the White Mountains is always changing. Make sure to bring extra clothing and a rain jacket. Check current weather conditions in Lincoln, NH.
HIKING & SWIMMING: When hiking and swimming, use the buddy system. Create a designated meeting area in case someone in your party were to get injured. In the case that someone does get injured, it is important to STAY where you are. Pick up an Emergency Contact Card at the Gondola, Adventure Center, and at Loon Mountain Sports.
HIKING: If you would enjoy hiking down the mountain after taking the Gondola to the top, please stay on the dirt work road.
BICYCLE SAFETY: The White Mountain National Forest DOES NOT permit mountain biking on any of the ski trails. Please stay off the mountain. When biking on our designated bike paths, please WEAR A HELMET!
WILDLIFE: We are not the only ones living in the White Mountains. Please keep in mind that we share this beautiful area with many different animals, such as black bears, moose, deer, and fox. If you come across an animal, do not chase it; leave young animals alone and leave the area slowly and as soon as possible. Please do not feed any wild animals.

NO ONE LIKES STUBBED TOES: Protect your feet by wearing closed-toed shoes when participating in any outdoor activity this summer at Loon Mountain.
LEAVE NO TRACE: If you take it in, bring it out. Help Loon Mountain keep the environment clean. Every bit helps!
BUG DOPE: You know that annoying buzzing sound you hate? And the itchy sensation you get afterward? When spending time in the outdoors this summer, make sure to wear bug spray to prevent bug bites.
EMERGENCY: In case of a medical emergency, please call 911.
