South Peak Resort is situated on Loon Mountain Resort’s South Mountain. Loon offers New Hampshire’s most extensive skiing, with a 2,100 vertical drop across three peaks. Located less than a mile from exit 32 on Interstate 93 and just two hours north of Boston, Loon has consistently been rated ‘the most accessible resort’ in New England by SKI Magazine readers.
South Peak enjoys a strong partnership with Loon, committed to becoming New England’s most engaging mountain community. Working together, we strive to enhance the on-mountain experience and provide new opportunities for guests to enjoy a 4-season mountain lifestyle. Loon also operates South Peak’s owner’s River’s Edge chairlift and grooms the ski on/off trails throughout the resort with their ‘Best in New England’ snowmaking.
From South Peak Base Camp (formerly the Pemi Base Camp), skiers take Loon’s Lincoln Express Quad to the peak of South Mountain, where they can choose to ski a variety of terrain options or take the Tote Road Trail, which provides access to both Loon Peak and North Peak. While eighty percent of Loon’s trails are rated intermediate and expert, the mountain accommodates beginner skiers with seventy-four acres of green trails. Freestylers will appreciate the six award-winning terrain parks and the only superpipe in New Hampshire. Loon’s sixty-one trails over 360 acres are spread across its three peaks and are serviced by twelve ski lifts, gondolas, and trams.
If skiing isn’t your thing, Loon offers a wide variety of mountain activities. In colder months, guests can enjoy snow tubing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, Snow-Go bikes, and gondola rides. In warmer months, Loon offers downhill mountain biking, hiking, glacial caves, rock-wall climbing, disc golf, yoga and gondola foliage rides.
The South Peak Expansion Loon’s plan to expand and enhance South Mountain is great news for residents of South Peak Resort, with the addition of more than 30 acres of skiable terrain and a new four-person chairlift. The South Peak expansion is slated to open for the 2023-2024 season and provides access from South Peak to new beginner and intermediate trails and tree-skiing areas serviced by fully automated fan guns and frost-free pipes.
Future expansion plans include a new learning area with two surface lifts and facilities for visitors learning to ski and snowboard. At South Peak, a new owner’s lodge and a walkable ski village, complete with shopping, restaurants, and entertainment options, are also in the planning stages.
