Loon Mountain Ski Resort Tips:

  • Ease of access = busy. Go midweek if you can. Otherwise, go early since parking fills up early and hit the slopes before the crowds get to the main peaks (North and Loon), then head to South Peak when the crowds start rolling in.
  • Check out the superpipe. Its 425 feet long with 18 foot high walls.
