Winter Fun at Loon Mountain is the perfect way to make family memories.
From skiing to ice skating, Winter Fun at Loon Mountain is the perfect way to spend time with your family. This post has been sponsored by Loon Mountain Resort and Spa, however, as always, all opinions are my own. #FamilyFun #WinterFun #iChooseLoon #sponsored
While there are plenty of places to stay in Lincoln, if you plan to enjoy all the skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snow tubing and other winter activities that Loon Mountain Resort has to offer, I recommend staying at the Loon Mountain on Club. The spacious 2-bathroom suites, with kitchen are moderately priced and perfect for a family of 3-5. Plus the kids love the novelty of the pull-down Murphy beds. Some rooms have oversized whirlpool tubs also. These are truly family friendly rooms. As Olivia says, “The view is awesome and there’s plenty of space to play.”
Having the kitchen, which is fully stocked with plates, utensils, and even cooking/baking dishes makes staying here even easier for families with picky children or those with allergies. We packed along snacks, muffins and juice for breakfast to save a little money on dining out. And if you don’t want to leave your room, there are two TVs, and then of course all the amenities right on site. I suggest requesting a room not on the 10th level. The 10th level with the restaurant, pool, Viaggio Spa, and indoor sports facilities etc are located on this floor so it tends to have more traffic than other levels of the Loon Mountain Club.
Winter Fun at Loon Mountain
Loon Mountain offers tons of Winter Activities. Opting to try something new, we decided to go snow tubing. You’ll need to make a reservation and pay a deposit. There is an area called “Tiny Tots” for smaller children (under 50lbs). Older children and adults can take the chair lift to the top of the snow tubing run. Mr. Juggling Act and Ethan, our family dare devils headed to the chair lift while Olivia and I went run after run on the small slope. She had an absolute blast; the shrieking and giggling was infectious! She probably went two dozen times easily.
Meanwhile, the boys were able to make about 6 runs. It depends on how many other people are turning and how long the line is for the chair lift, of course. The attendants were very friendly and helpful and this was such an amazing part of our trip. Both kids didn’t want to leave when our hour was up!
On our second day at Loon, we visited the Adventure Center. They offer all kinds of fun winter activities including snowshoeing, cross country skiing and more! The staff was very friendly and helpful, too.
As I laced up Olivia’s skates, she squealed “This is my dream come true!” I’m not sure if she thought she was going to be Bradie Tennell out there on the ice right off the bat or what. Slipping on the ice and landing on her bottom a few times did not deter her one bit! She used the milk crates to help steady herself and had a ball.
