Loon Mountain Resort Gondola Ride

Looking to take an interesting trip and get a bird’s eye view? Look no further than the Loon Mountain Resort in New Hampshire.


Loon Mountain Resort is known for its skiing. We were visiting in the fall so we didn’t visit for the skiing. We went to go on the Gondola. The gondola takes you up the mountain and gives you a beautiful bird’s-eye view of the surrounding area.

When you arrive you purchase your ticket and head to the gondola area. Get into the gondola and don’t let it leave before you get in because they keep moving as you’re trying to get in. From there you start to ascend up the mountain and take in the beautiful views. Before you know it you’ve reached the top and you can see all the way down to the resort below.


At the top there are other activities to do such as a game called “disc golf”. Never heard of it before that trip. There’s also a café called Summit Café. I had a Beyond Burger that was really good. Behind the café is what you really want to see. Step out onto the deck and take in the gorgeous views.

There is a lake in the crater of one of the mountains. It was simply breathtaking. That made the long drive to the resort completely worth it. It was the way the sun’s says just shone down onto the surface of the water. It was one of the most beautiful sights of the whole trip. It’s impossible to capture it in a photo. You really have to see it and experience it for yourself.

We stayed at the summit to take photos, ate lunch there and then decided we were ready to go back. I liked the view going down because I feel you get a better view of the mountains. The views were breathtaking.


If you’re anywhere near the White Mountains in New Hampshire I definitely suggest taking the gondola ride at Loon Mountain Resort.
