Loon Mountain Resort in Lincoln is planning several major capital projects for the coming year, including breaking ground on a network of lift-accessed downhill mountain biking trails and significant snowmaking efficiency improvements. The resort will also introduce the new Access Pass, a four-season subscription pass that covers everything from skiing and riding in the winter to ziplining, scenic gondola rides, biking and disc golf in the spring, summer, and fall.
The construction of 15 miles of downhill mountain biking trails begins in May. Designed and built in conjunction with Highland Trails of Highland Mountain Bike Park, the new trails will complement Loon’s 10 existing miles of cross-country biking trails. Once all phases are complete, Loon will offer over 25 miles of downhill and cross-country biking trails–the largest combined network in the White Mountains.
Other improvements include snowmaking, which will receive a major upgrade for the 2019/20 season. The resort is planning to install semi-automated snowmaking hydrants on several major trails, significantly adding to the semi-automated hydrants that have been installed over the last several years.
The new Access Pass will allow guests to enjoy the best of all four seasons at Loon with the ease of monthly payments. Benefits include unlimited skiing and riding at loon with no blackout dates, 12 friend lift tickets at 50 percent off, and four-season discounts on food and beverage and at loon mountain sports and more.
