USA > Loon

Why is Loon a good ski resort for school groups?

Loon Mountain in New Hampshire, other than having a fantastic name, is a great US east coast ski resort, just a couple of hours drive from Boston. This family friendly resort gets some good snow during the winter months and is a great place for your school students to learn the fundamentals of skiing.

Topping out at around 900 meters, on a European scale you'd imagine the resort would struggle for snow, but Winter in New Hampshire is more than capable of making snow at any altitude and the snowmaking facilities cover around 80% of the terrain.

Getting to Loon
School groups will fly into Boston and transfer through the beautiful state of New Hampshire, arriving at the ski resort of Loon about two and a half hours later.

For beginners
There are 61 different ski trails at Loon Mountain with plenty of choice for beginners and intermediate ability skiers. The Gondola takes you to the top of the mountain and from there you can enjoy one of the longest runs back down to the base of the resort on a green run - not many resorts can offer that to beginners! Away from the skis there is also a zipline, an aerial adventure park, tobogganing, and plenty more to keep you entertained.

Loon accommodation
Loon Mountain attracts tourists year round, so there are plenty of motels, inns and condominiums for school groups to set up base in. The ski operator you choose to work with will advise on the best location for your group.
