Loon Mountain Resort Unveils New Trail Map for South Peak Expansion

Lincoln, NH (August 24, 2023) Today, Loon Mountain Resort unveiled the new trail map for its South Peak expansion, which adds eleven trails and one four-place chairlift to the resort. The expansion increases Loon’s skiable terrain to over 400 acres, 13 lifts and a vertical drop of 2,190 feet–making it the longest in New Hampshire.

11 New Trails

The thirty acres of new terrain features eleven new trails, including two tree-skiing areas, which cater to beginner and intermediate ability levels. Over 60 percent of the terrain being added is green level with the remainder rated More Difficult. “These winding and wide-open trails are purposefully designed for guests learning to ski or snowboard. Terrain like this does not currently exist at Loon and I’m excited to finally offer it to our guests.” said Brian Norton, Loon’s president and general manager. The trail names are derived from the rich logging history of the region.

Timbertown Quad

Servicing the expansion will be Timbertown Quad, South Peak’s new Doppelmayr Alpenstar 4-CLF chairlift, complete with loading conveyor. Conveniently located one-half mile from Main Street and a mile more from Interstate 93, the Timbertown Quad will transport guests 486 feet to access current South Peak trails as well as the new terrain in approximately 6 minutes. This lift is scheduled to open December 2023.

Snowmaking Installation

The installation of fully automated and semi-automated snowmaking is underway at the South Peak expansion area and will be completed on six trails prior to the upcoming winter season. The remainder of the installation will be completed in fall 2024.
