LINCOLN, NH (September 2, 2014) – As the first colors of autumn begin to dot the landscape, Loon Mountain Resort is gearing up for exciting fall events like the White Mountain Oktoberfest, and O2X Summit Challenge.

In October, Loon will host the White Mountain Oktoberfest (Oct. 11-12). Timed to coincide with peak foliage season, White Mountain Oktoberfest offers guests a chance to enjoy beer and bratwurst in the company of friends old and new. With an Oompah-band providing the soundtrack to fun events like the stein-holding contest, cornhole competition, keg toss, and children’s activities, Oktoberfest brings a taste of the Bavarian Alps to the White Mountains. And with New England Passes on sale at preseason prices through October 13, revelers can purchase their passes onsite at the New England Pass office all weekend.

Obstacle course racing goes au natural this fall with the O2X Summit Challenge (Oct. 18), a new event that takes trail running off trail. Runners will ascend more than 2,100 feet and tag three peaks as they bushwhack through dense forest, weave through craggy glacial caves, and contend with other all-natural obstacles. More information about the O2X Summit Challenge, and online registration, is available by visiting http://www.o2x.com/.

A costume contest with cash prizes will highlight the Halloween Bash (Nov.1), the final event of Loon’s fall season. Revelers will dress up in their best costumes and dance the night away to Shutdown Brown, a Maine-based funk band.
