We love Loon Mountain and the Mountain Club on Loon and swore to return after our last trip there so Miss Zoe could really have a blast. None of us had ever done a real winter ski vacation so we headed back to the ever hospitable Mountain Club on Loon this February vacation. As always the room was impeccable. The Mountain Club really makes sure that families are comfortable in their spacious suites. The girls each had their own bed in one room while Alex and I had a full master bedroom. Both offered amazing views of the mountainside and ski action which the girls loved. There were also two bathrooms and a full kitchen. As a vegan family, having a kitchen in your hotel is a huge benefit and we used it every night.

Since Miss Zoe wasn’t sick this time, we spent a ton of time at the pool as well. The indoor heated pool was full of happy kids swimming, while the outdoor hot tub gave adults a chance to unwind and stay warm despite the chilly mountain air. I also got a chance to order some food this trip from The Black Diamond Pub. We ordered some beer and apps and enjoyed all of it (my excitement over them offering tater tots as a side truly should have been caught on film!)
Most exciting of all was definitely out snowy adventures as a family. Our first day, we all took skiing lessons. Alex and I were grouped together for some adult lessons while we dropped the girls off for their own. Zoe took a half day ski lesson with kids her age. I could actually see a lot of her lesson because we were on the same bunny trail together and she was having a blast. Her instructor Didi was very kind and helpful with her. It was Lea, however, who had the most action packed day of all of us. She was part of the full day kinderbear program where she was grouped with other 4-5 year-olds where she learned how to ski but also got some fun playtime with the kids too. She was so proud of herself when we picked her up telling me, “I am so good at skiing!”
|So many amazing kids programs!|
The next day, Alex and Zoe hit up the adventure center where they did some crazy winter ziplining. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I witnessed Zoe volunteer to go first in a group of all adults. Seeing her fly across the river was a very proud momma moment. The adventure center offers tons of other fun things too like ice skating, snowshoeing, and indoor rock climbing. There is just so much to do at Loon!

Like I mentioned in another post, the best thing about Loon is definitely the people. Whether it was Mike at the hotel, or Greg who was awesome enough to show us around the mountain, or any of the great instructors we had, everyone at Loon treats the guests like gold. I cannot recommend this place enough. There is still time to get some spring skiing in and summer fun is right around the corner so book yourself a suite at the Mountain Club and get ready for some great fun on Loon Mountain. Tell them the Monsters sent you!
