Event Details

Join us as we celebrate our independence from the whims of Mother Nature thanks to NH’s most powerful snowmaking system, and our hard-working snowmakers.

Snowcat Rides | 4:30PM

Ever wondered what it feels like to be in the cab of a snowcat? Here’s your chance. Snowcats of all different sizes and can fit up to 2 (maybe 3 sometimes) people per ride. Loon team members will be there to assist you. Snowcat rides are open to the first 250 people in line*.
*Please note this is a change in Snowcat Ride operations.

Torchlight Parade & Fireworks | 6:45PM

Watch a team of skiers and snowboarders glide down and light up the slopes. Be on the lookout for the bright bird on the mountain too. Immediately following the parade, will be a grand finale of fireworks.


Babe’s Blue Ox Lounge will be serving up apres-ski indoors and while a DJ is spinning outdoors to stoke the crowd.
