There's a chill in the air and we're cool with that, because you know what else will be in the air in the very near future? Snow. We're shooting to open T2 for skiing and riding on Monday, November 3. Of course, this is weather-dependent, but with temperatures expected to drop on Sunday there are flakes in the forecast - both natural and Sunday River-made. This year we have even more snowmaking firepower, so get ready for some epic early conditions. Before you know it, you'll be shredding all 870 acres. Happy Place? Yeah, you'll have no problem finding it.
If all goes according to plan we'll be spinning the Locke Mountain Triple at 9 a.m. Monday for a full day of skiing and riding with downloading service from the midstation. Just remember that conditions can be variable the first few days of the season and T2 is an expert trail, so we suggest that only advanced skiers and snowboarders hit the hill. After Monday, we'll temporarily suspend operations for the rest of the week to preserve the snow with plans to re-open for the weekend.
Bummed about missing Halloween on the slopes? So are we, but we'll make it up to you on Monday: If you ski in your Halloween costume, we'll give you your lift ticket for free. Lift tickets will be $29 for everyone else, available at Barker Mountain Lodge, along with all other skier services. Note: Season pass pick-up is at South Ridge Lodge.
Now's a great time to get your mitts on a New England Pass if you haven't done so already, and the College New England Pass is just $359 if you get it by November 30. Won't be skiing enough for a season pass this year? Pick up a Frequent Skier Card or buy lift tickets now and save big.
Be sure to check in here for the latest updates between now and Monday. See you soon!
