White Out Weekend

« All Events

Turn the WOW Factor to 11!

February 5, 2016 - February 7, 2016

Thrill, entertain, amuse, seduce: All synonyms for "wow." At Sunday River, we're so devoted to wowing you that we took an entire weekend and called it WOW! We're proud to host White Out Weekend (WOW) in association with OutRyders, New England's largest GLBTQ ski and snowboard club.

Sunday River brings eight peaks of great skiing and riding with the most dependable snow in New England, but at its core, WOW is all about good times with friends. As the name suggests, this weekend is full of special events and parties. Last year's White Out Weekend included apres ski socials, fireworks, a zipline parade, and the weekend's super hot theme party. 

WOW ski and stay packages include on-mountain lodging, lift tickets, and ski or snowboard clinics each day.

OutRyders is New England's largest gay and lesbian ski and snowboard club. They're all about great friends, great mountain fun, and great times together at off-mountain social events (and they get great trip deals too!). Formed in 2001, OutRyders is a nonprofit, all volunteer-run organization.
