Loon Mountain hosts more skiers than any other resort in the state.[citation needed] The resort was founded in the 1960s.[1]

On September 19, 2007, Boyne Resorts, a Michigan-based resort company, announced it had acquired the lease to operate Loon from Booth Creek Ski Holdings.[2] In 2011 the resort was expanded by four trails. It also increased the number of snow guns by 170 to a total of 600, at a total cost of $1.4 million.[3]
