Keep Thinking Cold
With less than 30 days until the start of snowmaking season, winter is on everyone’s mind. Since April, our team has been busy with upgrades across the resort. Improvements have been made both on and off the mountain including a total replacement of the Camp III outdoor patio, redesign of the Children’s Center interior, installation of Loon’s first fully automated snowmaking equipment and, of course, the Kancamagus 8.
There is much to be excited about for the upcoming winter, but it will not be a return to normal. We have been applying many valuable lessons learned last winter and are currently refining plans for the upcoming season. The pandemic continues to affect our lives and we continue to adapt.
One adaptation from last winter that will remain is related to the availability of day tickets. The number of day tickets available for purchase will be limited, and must be purchased on our website to guarantee your access. Managing the number of tickets sold each day has shown to improve the experience for both our guests and team.
Season pass holders (New England Pass and Loon) will be open to visit as their passes allow, as will ticket pack holders (New England 5-Day, XL 3-Pack). Reservations will not be required for Ikon Pass holders.
At this time, mask use is required at Loon and will continue until rates of community transmission improve in our region. Loon operates on federal land, and as permit holders operating on federal land, we are required to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), consistent with Executive Order 13991.
At this time, guests (ages 3 & above) must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status, in these situations: Common indoor areas and outdoors when proper distancing cannot be maintained. Masks are not required outdoors when you are able to maintain a proper distance.
Know Before You Go
As you know, a lot can change—and will. The Know Before You Go page on our website will continue to be the go-to page for changes throughout the season. Expect updates coming to that page as November approaches.
The leaves have begun to turn, the Kanc 8 is coming to life, and winter's crisp air is upon us. I look forward to welcoming you back to Loon for our 55th season!
