Sunday River Resort Adds 75 Acres of New Terrain

Press Release

Resort becomes second largest in New England and makes good on promise for more skiable terrain thanks to a new terrain park trail and glades

Newry, Maine (Winter 2013/14)-For those skiers and snowboards who like to venture off trail and into the woods, drop into a superpipe, hit some rails or even jumps, Sunday River Resort is excited to announce the addition of a new terrain park trail and five new gladed areas for the 2013/14 winter season.

This new terrain totals 75 acres for a total of 820 acres of skiable terrain at the resort. This terrain also makes Sunday River the second largest resort in New England behind sister resort, Sugarloaf, also in Maine.    

More information about Sunday River's new terrain is as follows:
-T72:
 Located on North Peak between Sunday River's 3D and Dream Maker trails, T72 is a 15-acre terrain park trail designed with the help of Snow Park Technologies and Olympic hopeful, Simon Dumont.  T72 will include a jump line, rail features, and superpipe, and is serviced by two lifts.  

-Hardball (extension): This double black diamond glade located between the Shockwave and White Heat trails on Sunday River's White Cap peak, grows from 3.2 acres to 13.4 acres thanks to extensive tree work.

-Chutzpah (extension):  Another double black diamond glade on White Cap, Chutzpah follows Hardball's lead and grows from 5.7 acres to 29.4 acres.  In addition to plenty more elbow room, skiers and snowboarders will also enjoy a second entrance off the Obsession trail. 

-North Woods: Found between Sunday River's 3D and North Exposure trails, North Woods is a new double black diamond glade that extends for a total of 6.1 acres.

-Super Nova: For any skier or snowboarder who has ever eyed the Aurora liftline from the Aurora Peak Quad, it's now 4.2 acres of gladed double black diamond terrain thanks to a new entry off the Airglow trail and exit into the Celestial glade.   

-Poppy Fields: Follow the Kansas trail (Sunday River's version of the Yellow Brick Road) past the Emerald City trail and drop into this new 15.8 acre double black diamond glade which 'pops' skiers and snowboarders back out onto the Cyclone trail.
