March 19 | Cardboard Box Race
Here at Loon, spring doesn’t truly arrive until kids start gliding downhill in cardboard boxes they’ve transformed into helicopters, moose, and pirate ships.
April 1 | ‘80s Day
Celebrate the return of spring by reliving the raddest decade of the 20th century. ’80s Day is a complete throwback party with a costume contest, morning exercise class, on-snow DJ, outdoor Bud Light bar, and so much more. It’s all capped off with a legendary slopeside après-ski performance from ‘80s cover band Fast Times.
April 9 | Slushpool Party & Wet Tug-o-War
A spring tradition here at Loon, the Slushpool Party is a magical event in which skiers and riders try to skim across a pond of ice-cold water. Spoiler alert: most fail spectacularly. Another competition, the Wet Tug-o-War, is a back-and-forth battle where teams of eight try to pull their opponents into the icy water. Champions will walk home with new gear from SPY Optics – and dry clothes.
April 16 | Easter
Guests will load the gondola before dawn to enjoy a non-denominational Easter sunrise service at the summit with Loon Mountain Ministry. Refreshments at the Summit Cafe and first tracks will follow the service, along with a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Easter egg hunt. Activities are free to all participants.
