Home to the most dependable snow in New England, Sunday River Resort offers 870 skiable acres on 135 trails spanning eight distinct peaks. Skiers and snowboarders flock to these lift-serviced slopes which are nestled in the Mahoosuc Mountains of Western Maine in search of adventure, be it carving picture-perfect corduroy, exploring hidden stashes in the trees, or hitting features in six terrain parks.

 

 

Quality Snow

Thanks to the most advanced snowmaking system in the East, Sunday River is able to guarantee snow conditions that satisfy all guests from beginners growing to love snow sports to expert skiers and riders looking for a challenge. This commitment to snowmaking—shown through yearly updates and investments—is manifested in quality snow conditions on a variety of terrain. For the 2016-17 season, conditions will continue to benefit thanks to upgraded snowmaking equipment and two new PistenBully groomers joining the fleet.

 

Perfect Turn

Newcomers and those looking to brush up on their skills can learn from the professionals at Sunday River’s Perfect Turn Ski and Snowboard School located in the South Ridge base area. Perfect Turn offers daily clinics for all ages and abilities, plus specific learning terrain on South Ridge for an enhanced experience. Graduates often go on to enroll in adult and children’s seasonal programs where new ski and snowboard buddies are guaranteed throughout winter weekends and holidays.

 

After Hours

A day at Sunday River never ends at four o’clock. With lighted terrain on North Peak and South Ridge during weekends and holidays, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy a full 12 hours on the slopes with night skiing, not to mention plenty of off-mountain fun. From the robust dining scene—including the new Mountain Room bar at the mid-mountain Peak Lodge, the always popular Camp restaurant in the Grand Summit Hotel, and resort based food trucks like Maine-ly Meatballs and The SaltBox Cafe—to a host of activities, like family-friendly shows from Black Diamond Entertainment, snow tubing, ice skating, and fireworks displays, a trip to Sunday River is so much more than just skiing or snowboarding.

 

A Stacked Calendar

In addition to numerous activities, Sunday River’s calendar is also stacked with tried-and-true events like the annual Santa Sunday (Dec. 4), Winterfest Weekend (Dec. 16-18), Spring Festival (Mar. 31-Apr.1), and Pond-A-Palooza (Apr. 8), along with newer additions like the Chef Summit (Jan. 28), the Brisket Derby (Mar. 26), and the free Spring Après Concert Series (Mar. 18, Mar. 25, Apr. 8).

 

Ski & Stay

Throughout the season guests can stay while they play at any of Sunday River’s lodging properties, including two hotels that bookend the resort and the Snow Cap Inn located near the heart of everything. Both the Jordan Hotel and the Grand Summit Hotel offer ski-in/ski-out access, restaurants, health clubs, heated outdoor pools, and spa services, while the Snow Cap Inn is a budget- and dog-friendly option within walking distance to the slopes. A free guest shuttle system connects all three properties.
