Moguls at LoonLINCOLN, NH (March 22, 2013) –After receiving more than a foot of snow in the last week, Loon Mountain Resort is gearing up for a springtime of unparalleled conditions and exciting events.

Thanks to its commitment to snowmaking and a parade of recent snowstorms, Loon’s terrain is now 98 percent open across three peaks. That is the most late-season terrain Loon has enjoyed in several years, and should allow for excellent spring skiing and riding right into April.

In addition to great conditions, Loon is looking forward to several classic spring events:

March 30-31 – Spring-Sanity Weekend – Saturday brings a wild and crazy embrace of all things spring, with a Slushpool Party, Battle of the Bumps Contest, and Red Bull DJ Dance Party. A nondenominational sunrise service at the summit will start Easter Sunday, with Easter Egg Hunts and a Pancake Breakfast with the Easter Bunny to follow.

April 6 – ‘80s Day & Neff Beach Bash – Pay homage to a decade of big hair and neon by dusting off your straight skis and squeezing into those acid-washed jeans. In the terrain park, the Neff Beach Bash will offer up an ‘80s-inspired rail jam with cash and prizes up for grabs. At the end of the day, ‘80s cover band Fast Times will rock the Bunyan Room patio.

April 13 – Street Cred presented by Red Bull – Snowboarders compete in this street-inspired rail jam where creativity, style and versatility earn points with the judges. Competitors compete on urban-style elements, vying for bragging rights and a $2,000 cash purse.

2013-14 New England Passes are on sale now at the best prices through April 30. Anyone who purchases a 2013-14 Pass in full now can ski or ride for free the rest of the season. The Easy Pay Plan allows skiers and riders to lock in the current low prices by putting $50 toward their pass by April 30 and paying the balance over the summer.
