Know Before You Go

Become familiar with some of the new protocols across the resort.
    • To assist in spreading out skiers and riders, we plan to be aggressive in opening terrain across the resort. We installed 41 new KLIK hydrants on Flying Fox, Link and Crosscut, and our strategy is to open select trails at each peak to get more lifts and lodges open quickly.
    • We plan to operate all lifts this winter, as snow and conditions permit. Expect to see Seven Brothers Triple and East Basin Double operating more frequently.
    • Facial coverings will be mandatory while in lift queues, loading, riding, and unloading all lifts. This includes while riding inside the Gondola.
    • Wear your mask. And wear it correctly.
    • Daily lift tickets are limited and must be purchased online, in advance. Ticket Calendar
    • Tickets can be picked up atcontactless pickup boxes (PUB), located in each base area.
    • Tickets are RFID-equipped and can be reloaded online for direct-to-lift access on future visits.
  • Ikon Pass holders must make a reservation to ski at Loon any day this winter. Reservations must be made at During that reservation process, Ikon Pass holders will designate Friends & Family tickets at that time.

  • Currently, we are not planning on offering shuttles to and from Escape Route lots. The list of available lots are: Main Lot, Adventure Center Lot, Children’s Center Lot, River Lot, Beach Lot and South Peak Lot when Lincoln Express Quad is operating. Be respectful to our team and other guests when arriving and parking at the resort. Follow these simple rules:

    • No oversized vehicles: includes, but not limited to, campers, RVs, and trailers
    • No overnight parking or camping
    • No alcohol
    • No open flames or fires
    • Don’t Litter
  • To accommodate for proper social distancing, the wait times for lifts will likely be longer and the length of each line may appear to be longer too. Be patient, keep your distance and wear a face covering throughout. When riding the Gondola, face coverings must be worn at all times and the windows must be kept open.

    Guests who arrive together should ride the lift together. If you arrived alone, ride the lift alone. Self-grouping will be done by guests. Loon will not be grouping people together. Singles lanes and lesson-only lanes have been eliminated.

    Barriers or Ghost Lanes will be in place in lift queues to allow for proper social distancing and/or barrier between guests.

  • From the time you leave your car, wear a face covering. CDC guidance is to “wear masks with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19.” Wear it properly so that it always covers your mouth and nose. Make sure there are no holes in it – that defeats the purpose. Our team is here to ensure you have a great experience at Loon. However, you must do your part, too.
