What a winter! Stretching from Nov. 8 to April 20, this was one of the longest, snowiest seasons we’ve enjoyed in quite some time. Thanks for an amazing winter, and we’ll see you in November!

We’ve enjoyed an awesome season here at Loon – and it’s not over yet. The final day of the season is April 20, so get up here and shred!

Not a rail jam. Street spots…on snow. Little Sister trail transformed into a snowboarders paradise–a full urban landscape of rails, concrete ledges, stop signs and yes, even a fried dough cart. Plus, freshly welded features, crafted at Loon’s Shaping Shack, were unveiled and ready to grind. And oh ya…with a private chairlift.

$2000 was for grabs…but it didn’t all go to the winner Parker Szumowski. $1500 was given away in a cash-for-tricks format.
