Go50 Week

« All Events

When it comes to the slopes, age is just a number!

January 25, 2016 - January 29, 2016

At Sunday River, we have an exceptional over-50 crowd. We don't know whether it's Maine's chilly air that helps keep our aged contingent spritely or whether Sunday River skiers are simply a heartier group, but we are damn proud to have such a loyal and experienced clientele.

Go50 Week is all about celebrating that guy who's put in 30 years as a high school math teacher and shreds on the weekends, the mom who skis bumps better than her college-aged kids, and the Sunday River lifer with an A-frame in Viking Village. It's about saying, "Hey, age is just a number." Prime Time Ski Club at Sunday RiverExcept that in this case, age is also a badge of honor. And, as such, it'll get you all kinds of sweet deals this week, including excellent ski and stay packages.
