Lrt Friday night Kanc Training


Kanc training - The best SL training in the East

Friday Night Kanc Training at the Kanc Ski Slope

Starting in January, on Friday nights from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Loon Race Team U10-U19's have the opportunity to train at the local ski slope in town.   

The Kanc Ski slope has produced several outstanding ski racers and is the home of the Lin-Wood Ski Team.  It features a high speed rope tow and 221 vertical feet.   Coaches Bryce Gillen, Marissa Haase, Liza Tetley and Bailey Clermont all started their racing career at the Kanc and went on to be extremely successful ski racers.    LRT takes full advantage of the Kanc and is thankful for the town of Lincoln for providing an opportunity for LRT athletes to pursue their passion of ski racing.  

Assistant Program Director Aaron Loukes is in charge of this program and feel free to reach out to him with any questions at aaronloukes@gmail.com

Located not too far from the Kancamagus Highway, the Kanc. Recreation Area is a small ski area owned by the Town of Lincoln.

The area may have opened in 1946 as the Lincoln Ski Tow. Following the demise of the Grandview Slope in Woodstock, the Kanc. Recreation area likely became the go-to ski area for local youth.

The Kanc. Recreational Area features a high speed rope tow that serves a large intermediate slope and a side trail. A slope without lift service is available for novice skiers and for sledders.

The Kanc. Recreational Area has snowmaking, grooming, and night skiing on the main slope. It has been kept in operation for decades by locals with the help of nearby Loon Mountain
