Shuttle to the Mountain

After arriving at the resort, park your car and leave it for the week or the weekend. Everything you need and want to do is at RiverWalk Resort, within walking distance, or a short shuttle bus ride away. Shuttle from the grand entrance of the resort to Loon Mountain's lodge for a day of skiing. Just give them a call at the end of the day, and they’ll pick you up and whisk you home to the resort so you can relax by the fireplace or in the hot tub.

If you're unsure of what skiing and riding will look like for the 2020/2021 season with safety guidelines in place, visit Loon Mountain and Cannon Mountain's "Know Before You Go" pages on their websites.
