Loon Announces South Peak Expansion

At our 2022/23 South Peak Season Kickoff event at One Love Brewery last Saturday night, Loon was on hand to share some news with South Peak residents. The long-awaited South Peak Expansion is now underway and will include 30+ acres of terrain and a new four-place chairlift closer to downtown Lincoln, with fully automated snowmaking.

The South Peak expansion project is scheduled to open during the 2023/24 season and will provide ski on/off access to an additional 14 trails for South Peak’s residents.

“Guests will be transported up 500 vertical feet to access Cruiser via the Lincoln Express Quad.”

Further development in this area will include a new learning area tailored around learn-to-ski and snowboard experiences.

Skiing

Three distinct resorts, three distinct vibes – the choice is yours at South Peak.

Loon Mountain – Conveniently located in South Peak’s backyard, Loon’s impressive numbers tell the story: 2,100-foot vertical drop, 370 skiable acres, 61 trails, 11 lifts, eight glades, and three peaks. An impressive 99% snowmaking coverage on trails and 322 acres of snowmaking in total. Loon has also garnered coveted “Top” honors from Ski Magazine, Freeskier Magazine, and Transworld Snowboarding. Known as one of New England’s most accessible mountains, the recently announced expansion, Flight Path: 2030, promises to make Loon New England’s premier mountain destination.

Bretton Woods – A 36-minute ride from South Peak and you will find yourself at New Hampshire’s largest ski area with 464 acres of skiing and snowboarding on 63 trails, 35 glades, ten lifts (including an 8-passenger gondola, four high-speed quads), four terrain parks and snowmaking on 92% of trails. Yes, there is a candy store at the top and plenty for families to do, having been named in the Top 5 in the East for family programs.

Cannon Mountain – Just 10 miles from Lincoln in Franconia Notch State Park and steeped with a rich history, Cannon features New Hampshire’s only aerial tram, the largest vertical drop (2,330 feet), 285 skiable acres on two peaks, 97 trails, and glades, 11 lifts, and 192 acres of snowmaking. Cannon features challenging but rewarding terrain for hardcore skiers and boarders with few other activities off the mountain.

Leaf Peeping at South Peak Resort

While I’ll miss lazy days lounging on the Pemi River, autumn offers terrific new opportunities to enjoy South Peak. New Hampshire’s White Mountains are never more beautiful than during fall foliage season when billowing warm hues color the periphery for hundreds of miles.

Only two hours from Greater Boston, South Peak at Loon Mountain is one of the best regions on the planet for leaf-peeping. Sweeping valley views from the Kancamagus Highway reveal flashes of bright red against the mountain landscape, with deep orange and gold not far behind. Foliage begins turning color in late September, with peak color expected in the second and third week of October.

To help plan your trip, the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs launched an interactive Fall Foliage Tracker: Foliage Tracker

If you prefer a more active experience, South Peak and Loon Mountain Resorts have a variety of terrain to mountain bike or hike through the blaze of color. Don’t get too distracted by the color and fall off your bike!
