Fires on the Mountains: Loon Mountain, NH


Loon Mountain, NH

Environmentalists have tied up an expansion proposal here for seven years, using lawsuits to force the ski area into additional and costly impact studies. Issues involve the use of Loon Pond for snowmaking and the expansion of skiing into a 100-acre area that is within the resort’s permit boundaries in White Mountain National Forest. Public hearings are being scheduled on recent revisions to the plan.
