I wanted to head over to Loon this weekend for some weekend skiing. I'm not sure if I should expect large crowds or waits since it's early in the season. Can anyone shed some light on my situation, and/or any advice for which mountain to go to.

I'm driving up from Boston with the g/f.


Thanks!!!

I chatted with some folks who skied Loon this week. They have perhaps 6 runs top to bottom. What is ski-able is reported to be in great shape. With snow coming tonight, even though it's only about 3 inches, I'd expect to see a good sized crowd on the weekend. Just be ready for that. Otherwise have fun! And we all want a trip report detailing conditions and crowds there!

I was there yesterday and can attest to the great conditions. I counted the terrain as basically 4 routes... upper/lower picked rock, upper/lower bear claw, flyingfox/seven brothers (mix and match those to taste) and sunset/haulback/lower walking boss/brookway. I was there during the British invasion last spring as well, have to give them props for their early/late season product.

Oh, gondi was walk-on until the HS race teams arrived around 1:30-ish, but not all that bad even then. Can't say about the weekend.

I would expect poor conditions on entirely manmade snow. It will be slightly more enjoyable than watching old Seinfeld reruns. If you get a nice bottle of wine at dinner maybe you'll be able to forget how bad the skiing was.

Cheers!
