Sunday River's Adventure Park, including lift rides, mountain biking, and ziplines, is open Fridays through Sundays from 10AM to 4PM, so come on up and have some fun this fall. This is the final weekend to enjoy some Disc Golf and the Mountain Bike School shuts down before we head into Fall Festival, October 9-11, so get after it now.
Registration is open for the 16th annual North American Wife Carrying Championship on October 10, meaning it's time to couple up, saddle up, and start training. 50 pairs will be competing for this coveted title, 5 times the wife's weight in cash, and her weight in beer, and for just $50, you can be one of them! If bag toss is more your speed, the New England Cornhole Championship follows the next day, offering up a $600 cash purse.
After Fall Festival, we switch to full winter mode. Now that our legendary, hardworking, never-yielding, always impressive snowmakers pulled together the first snowmaking test of the 2015/16 season, we are ready to roll the moment conditions on the hill drop into the snow zone. Remember, Sunday River typically opens on or around Halloween. And, All Hallow's Eve is just around the corner. Even Eddy the Yeti is pitching in, from groomers to snowguns to lifts! We keep catching Eddy on video--keep your eyes peeled for more as the ski season approaches.
Now that winter is well on its way, it's time that you started getting ready too. The New England Pass is on sale at pre-season rates through October 12 and comes loaded with a stack of great passholder perks. Lift tickets are on sale this very minute in our online store, which is the way to go if you can't commit to a pass, but still want a deal. Finally, if you book your winter ski trips by October 15 you'll get our Lowest Price Guarantee, so lodging prices drop between now and your trip, your rate drops too.
