With a ski area that spans three peaks and one of New Hampshire’s most reliable snow record, it’s no wonder school groups love Loon. Loon has a wonderful slow-skiing area on Bear Claw giving beginners the reassurance they need, intermediates can head higher for more challenging trails.

With our New Hampshire Ski Safaris you can combine your trip to Loon with neighbouring resorts including Cannon, Waterville Valley or Bretton Woods.
