Loon Mountain Resort announced Monday that it plans to add more than 30 acres of skiable terrain to the ski area’s South Peak area, an expansion highlighted by a new four-person chairlift, fully-automated snowmaking, and tree-skiing areas for beginner and intermediate-level skiers and snowboarders.
The expansion is the latest step in Loon’s 10-year investment plan, “Flight Path: 2030,”focused on “development and modernization” across the resort. Several milestones have already been achieved during the first two years of the plan, including the installation of the first eight-person chairlift in the East — Kancamagus 8 — which opened last December.
According to Loon, the South Peak expansion is essential to future developments charted in the 10-year plan.
“The South Peak expansion has been a key part of Loon’s master plan for decades and we are thrilled to be moving towards the next major milestone of Flight Path: 2030,” Jay Scambio, COO of Loon operator Boyne Resorts, said in a release.
