It seems like just yesterday that spring was in the air in Massachusetts….mostly because it was in the 60 degree range all this week. But today the first icy blasts of winter hit the area which got me daydreaming of jet setting away someplace wintery to relax with a warm cup of cocoa. That’s why I am already planning my return trip to the Mountain Club on Loon in Lincoln, NH.
The Mountain Club on Loon is really a fantastic getaway spot, and I cannot wait to see what memories await us there this winter! If you read my previous post about the Mountain Club, you know what makes the place extra special is the amazing staff, so pack your bags and let the Mountain Club set the stage for a perfect winter getaway.
Besides the fantastic accommodations, there is just so much to do on Loon Mountain itself in the winter. There is the obvious skiing which I may actually attempt this year (I can’t believe I have never gone,) but also tons of other activities. Snow tubing should open up anytime now which is basically turbo sledding. I can’t wait to see Zoe zip down a mountain on a snow tube since she loved summer tubing so much. There is also an indoor climbing wall and my favorite: ice skating! There are so many ways to make your family ski trip affordable at Loon including:
THE NEW ENGLAND PASS
Valid at Loon Mountain, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf, this season pass is a ticket to the best terrain in New England, offering access to more than 300 trails and 2,000 acres of skiing and riding.
Loon is now a proud member of the Multi Alpine Experience (M.A.X.) Pass, a brand new, groundbreaking pass which includes five days at 22 mountains all over North America. Gold, Silver, and Graduate New England Passholders have the option of purchasing a M.A.X. Pass Add-on, which includes five days of skiing and riding at each of the 19 other participating M.A.X. Pass mountains (not including Loon, Sunday River or Sugarloaf). The M.A.X. Pass and M.A.X. Pass Add-on can be purchased at themaxpass.com.
E-Tickets are proof that it pays to plan ahead. By purchasing e-Tickets online at least five days in advance of their visit, skiers and riders can save up to 20 percent on regular multi-day tickets.
$31 SUNDAY AFTERNOON TICKET
For guests who like to live in the moment, the $31 Sunday afternoon ticket (non-holiday) is just right. Whether a guest decides to make a last-minute trip to the slopes or simply enjoys leisurely mornings, the $31 Sunday Afternoon Ticket guarantees skiing and riding from noon until the lifts close. Starts Jan. 3. Not valid 1/17/15; 2/14/15; 2/21/15.
