Eighteen spirited skiers (and hikers) enjoyed a three-day stay at Loon Mountain. We were treated to abundant sunshine on the slopes Monday morning and well-groomed trails through Tuesday. Wednesday’s early risers enjoyed several inches of fresh powder which made for some exhilarating skiing. Our skiers all found partners with similar levels of skiing expertise and appetite for challenge. Like many TOHG trips, we experienced few if any lift lines and ample room on the trails. We welcomed some new TOHG skiers as well as longtime friends, not officially on the trip, who joined us to ski for a day or two.
The Pollard Brook Inn provided us with spacious suites, as well as a spacious lodge and a couple of soothing hot tubs (one indoors, one outdoors). We enjoyed Happy Hours each night and went out to the legendary Gordi’s Fish and Steak House for a group dinner on the final evening. Many folks expressed a desire to return to Loon and Pollard Brook, perhaps for a slightly longer stay.
