Ski Areas – Loon Mountain & Cannon Mountain
Loon Mountain is New England’s most accessible big mountain resort. Located just two hours from Boston and three miles off Interstate 93, Loon offers 61 trails and 2,100 vertical feet of unparalleled skiing and riding.
First opened in 2007, South Peak is the place where locals go to find solitude, with wide-open cruisers like Boom Run, 45-degree steeps on Ripsaw, and gorgeous tree skiing in Undercut.
To connect with the main mountain, ride the Tote Road Quad from the summit of South Peak to the shoulder of Loon Peak. Since, no ski trails connect the two areas, so you’ll have to ride the lift or take a shuttle bus to the main mountain.
The North Peak
At 3,050 feet, North Peak is the resort’s high point. On a powder day you’ll see skiers and riders make a beeline to expert trails like Upper Walking Boss and Upper Flume, which collect some of the best snow on the mountain. Experts will love glades like Walking Boss Woods and Buck Saw, while intermediates will enjoy Sunset and its panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
When Loon Mountain opened in December of 1966, Loon Peak was the place to ski. Today, it’s still the nerve center of the resort, with our signature gondola servicing dozens of twisty, old-school New England trails. Loon Peak is also home to New Hampshire’s only Superpipe and our award-winning terrain parks – including the mile-long Loon Mountain Park.
Many people who ski, ride and work at Cannon have a deep connection to the mountain, love Cannon and find that the mountain is part of who they are. Cannon Mountain is different things to different people, but for many there seems to be a common thread…something that makes you feel like you are part of the experience at Cannon. Part of what makes Cannon – Cannon.
