Loon Shuttle Service News
Posted on Posted on Oct 25th, 2020
2020-2021 Winter Shuttle Bus Service
 
Dear Forest Ridge: 
We hope you are as excited as we are about another great winter season at Loon. Of course, this winter will look different than any other in our history. We have been hard at work making sure that we can give our guests the best possible experience this coming winter. At the top of that list is keeping the health and safety of everyone here at the resort as our number one priority. 
 
It is with that in mind, that we will see several changes to our shuttle bus service operation. It is our goal to provide shuttle bus service that complies with current federal, state, and local guidance. Keeping in mind that this guidance may change over time, the following changes will be implemented this coming winter: 
Not all shuttle service routes will be running this coming winter. With decreased capacities on our busses, we will need to decrease the amount of routes we operate to focus on our highest volume users. If you are receiving this letter, you are being offered shuttle bus service this winter. 
In some locations, we will be adding busses and routes to accommodate for decreased capacities per bus. For example, an association that may have only had one (1) bus servicing it in years past, may now have two (2) or more this coming season. 
 
Bus stops will be decreased, in an effort to maximize the efficiency of the bus route and minimize the amount of time guests are on the bus. Each route will have fewer bus stops than previous years. Loon will ONLY be picking up and dropping guests off at the specified bus stops. No exceptions. 
 
Facial coverings will be required for all guests, at all times. No exceptions! Face coverings are at the heart of our efforts to keep our employees and guests safe and healthy. Anyone without a facial covering will NOT be allowed to board our busses. 
 
Loon will only be offering Saturday, Sunday, and Holiday shuttle service. There will be NO midweek bus service during the February break vacation period. 
Although bags will be allowed on busses, they will not be allowed in our lodges this winter so we are strongly encouraging people to leave them at home. 
Busses will be cleaned frequently and that cleaning may impact bus route turnaround times. Lunch breaks may also be extended to allow for mid-day cleaning efforts. 
 
These are just some of the changes we need to make to keep the busses rolling this winter. We hope we are able to make positive changes as the impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic subside. Our goal is to get back to operating like normal, but not until we can do so safely. 
I know this will likely be a big disruption from your routine, but we must all stay vigilant when it comes to the health and wellbeing of our community, guests, and employees. We believe this is the best decision for everyone's safety.
Please be careful!

There is a lot of pedestrian traffic at Forest Ridge, with owners, guests, kids and dogs out enjoying the property.  In the fall, early darkness requires extra caution when driving on the property.  We have had a number of near misses when cars traveling at an excessive rate of speed come upon a walker, runner or bicyclist.  While pedestrians and bicyclists should take care, it is the responsibility of each driver to take all steps necessary to avoid accidents.  Pay attention to the road and pedestrians and bicyclists and travel at a reasonable speed.
 
Please remind your guests/renters that the speed limit is 20 MPH on the property and to use extra caution as we want everyone to be able to enjoy our property.
 
Again, PLEASE SLOW DOWN. Thanks
Internet and Cable TV at Forest Ridge
Posted on Posted on Feb 3rd, 2013
 
Spectrum (formerly Time Warner) Internet and Cable TV is now available to all owners at Forest Ridge as part of the services supplied by FRPOA at no additional cost.  All Forest Ridge Owners receive “Extreme Internet” service.  Our cable TV bulk service includes “basic”, “classic”, “digital tier” and “Showtime,” as well as most HD channels and digital music (over 300 channels).
Our contract provides a single digital or HD cable box.  Additional boxes may be obtained from Spectrum for a monthly fee.
Note: The Showtime and "The Movie Channel" channels must be activated on a unit basis. Because of some content, Spectrum does not turn on Premium services until requested by the unit owner. Call l channel listing here.
 
While there is no additional cost for internet and cable television, you do need to establish a Spectrum subscriber account.  If you are a current Spectrum subscriber and already have the required equipment, there is nothing that you need to do.  Note, if you feel that your equipment needs to be updated or replaced you should be able to exchange it at the offices listed below.  (The current equipment is either a simple cable modem or an integrated wireless modem and router).
 
If you currently do not receive Spectrum internet, you will need to get a cable modem from Spectrum (this is a no charge item per our contract).  The self-install kit including the modem is available from the offices listed below.  You can also call and request a kit be mailed to you.  This method works sometimes but often the operator does not understand "bulk residential contracts" such as ours.

Please be aware that the use of all terrain vehicles and snowmobiles is prohibited within Forest Ridge by the Master Declaration for the Forest Ridge Community. Unit owners are responsible for ensuring that their guests (including renters) comply with this and other rules within Forest Ridge. Please be sure that your guests and renters are aware of this restriction. Should an owner or their guests or renters violate this prohibition, the owner may be subject to fines and suspension of Sports Club privileges. Junior Associations may have similar restrictions. In addition to Forest Ridge rules, New Hampshire law also regulates use of all terrain vehicles and snowmobiles.
