Resort or Ski Area
:Loon Mountain

Conditions:
Highs in the mid 30's - Packed powder, man made snow.

Trip Report:
First trip of the season, felt good to be out on the snow today. First couple of runs were rough but I logged 7 runs today. There were two routes down from the middle summit. There were 3 trails off the summit funneling down into Blue Ox and Lower Bear Claw. The Snow was real nice, with soft packed powder man made. All in all a good day out. No wind and just good stuff.

Bene,

They should be in real good shape for the weekend. They were blowing snow all day. I can see then opening lower walking boss, cross cut, and a few others by the weekend.

Marc,

It was difficult. There was only one time I had to wait a minute to get on the gondola. But I guess someone had to do it today.

It was virtually empty. I had every gondola ride up to myself and never waited in line more than one person in front of me. While there were people there, it was season pass holders. I was the anomaly.

Loon posted to facebook today saying they have now opened North Peak with U/L Walking Boss, Sunset, Haulback, Crosscut and Link. They also opened Blue Ox on the front face and will be running the Kancamagus Quad this weekend which should (hopefully) keep it to minimal lift lines.
