Adventure Concierge Update!

March 30, 2010

As the Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge has past and the rain has come in everything in the area is starting to look like winter is coming to end. Loon Mountain has started their end of the season ticket sales the following prices are $59 for adults, $49 for teens, and $39 for JR/SR.

If you are looking for places to go snowshoeing some of the places that are not totally lost with snow are the hiking trails off the Kanc Highway. There are some really nice hiking trails that you will either see waterfalls or lakes.

As we go in between seasons and the snow starts to melt all the hiking trails will be muddy and water will be flowing off the mountain side. So, if you are going hiking please be aware of the weather conditions and dress for the weather.

The activities that are going on here at the resort are gifts in a jar, Bingo, toddler paint hour and Wii games. For a full list of our Moose Report please just call us and we an e-mail you a copy of a full list of trips and activities.

Happy Trails,

Bears on Parade

This year in Lincoln-Woodstock The Chamber of Commerce came up with the idea called “Bears on Parade.” You might ask what is Bears on Parade? Well Bears on Parade is the friendliest and the most outdoor art event of the year.  In the town of Lincoln-Woodstock there is 23 decorated and painted 36″ tall dancing bears.

In the above photo I am sitting in front of the Polar Express Bear and the Chamber of Commerce bear that is located in Chamber of Commerce office.

The next time you come visit, grab your map and start collecting all 23 bear paw stamps. You will find the maps at the front desk here at South Mountain. This event is a great way to see the local businesses and it is a fun activity for the family! For more information please visit the Lincoln-Woodstock Chamber of Commerce website.

Happy Trails,

For trips this coming week – March 15th thru March 18th – we have some great snowshoeing trips, arts and crafts and trips going to local towns!

On Monday, March 15th, we will be taking a walk over to Loon Mountain on the bike path. This is a 2 mile, flat easy hike mostly going alongside the Pemi River. You can also visit Pollard Brook to Design your own ceramic Piggy Banks. This craft welcome all ages!

Tuesday, March 16th, is a busy activity day for us:

· In the morning you can join our professional water aerobics instructor at the indoor pool at Pollard Brook for a Water Mix Aerobics Class. This class is only an hour long and can only accommodate the first 12 people who sign up.

· If you would like to go snowshoeing Steve will be taking a trip up to Sabbaday Falls. This is a 3/4-mile round-trip hike up to a 3-tiered waterfall! Most of the trail is flat, except one small hill.

· If you are interested in seeing how Maple Syrup is made, join us as we head on over to Fadden’s Sugar House. The Fadden family has been maple sugaring for generations and you will see how they have brought the process to a modern-looking facility.

In the afternoon, join me on a snowshoeing trip to Greeley Pond. We will head over the Kanc highway for a 2.5 mile, round-trip hike into the woods to a pair of picturesque ponds. This is one of our most difficult hikes.
