Southeast of Littleton near Lincoln, the Loon Mountain ski area has 61 trails spread over 370 acres served by twelve lifts accessing a maximum vertical descent of 2,100 feet. Unless there is fresh snow, you may find that the runs seem a little icy. The gondola accessing the summit is known for its long, slow lift line. If the line is out the door and moving slow, consider taking a series of lifts to reach the summit.
For the freestylers, there is a main terrain park with over 80 features. This massive terrain park is spread over a mail and has boxes, rails and a jump line. For the 2014/2015 season, there is the new Lil Stash natural graded park with rollers and berms. Plus, Loon Mountain is home to the only Super Pipe in New Hampshire.
While it may not be super rowdy, you might be able to find some acres ski action down at the base in the Paul Bunyan Room.
To reach the snowboarding at Loon Mountain, follow US93 to Exit #32 in Lincoln. Head east on SR112 (Kangamangus Highway) for 3.2 miles. The Loon Mountain ski area is on the right. There are three base areas with parking.
Tip: there is a little-known parking lot at South Peak Base Area where you can access first tracks on Cruiser and the new Ripsaw trail. Before heading up to snowboard Loon Mountain, you may want to look for lift ticket deals. The lift ticket prices are quite expensive at Loon. There isn't much of a discount for the afternoon session compared to the entire day.
Overall, Loon Mountain Ski Area is the 6th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 19 snowboarding resorts in New Hampshire.
