LINCOLN, New Hampshire — With top to bottom terrain open for its skiers and riders, Loon Mountain, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, is off to a fantastic start for the 2007-2008 winter season. Snowmaking continues around the clock when conditions permit, and more trails are scheduled to open this weekend.
Loon will host its annual Ring in the Winter Celebration on December 8 & 9. This is a fundraiser for the local Angel Tree Project in Plymouth, NH. Guests can purchase a single jingle bell for $5, or three for $10.
