Today at Sunday River **********************
After a morning of winter mix, Mother Nature has decided to throw some light snow our way with decent snow accumulation at summit. It may not have been a picturesque start to the day but all of our groomed terrain is skiing and riding very well and we have collected up to 3 inches of snowfall throughout the day. All of our brave and dedicated skiers and riders who hit the hill today lucked out with some excellent trail conditions and wall to wall snow.
As we head into tomorrow, temperatures are forecast to steadily rise and our wintery mix will most likely transition to light rain. Don't forget, this week is chock full of deals and events so don't let the weather rain on your parade. After all, the latter half of our week appears to have improved weather conditions and we have a lineup of events and activities you won't want to miss.
Our grooming squad will be back out for another night on the hill and plan to hit the same checklist of 80 trails to give us plenty of groomed terrain for first chairs tomorrow. The grooming team will have a little extra snow to smooth out overnight and dependent upon weather conditions, we could have another awesome morning of corduroy to enjoy tomorrow.
Don't forget, New Hampshire residents can ski and ride on Tuesdays for $49 with the same deal available for Maine residents on Wednesday and for College students all month long!
This week's lineup of events includes Olympic Qualifier Alpine Races on Wednesday and one of our most anticipated events of the year, Spring Festival presented by Bud Light. This year's Spring Festival features a Beach Party Rave on Friday, The 3rd Annual Slip 'n' Flip and Margarita Mixoff on Saturday as well as live music all weekend long. This is one of our biggest parties of the year and this year's Festival promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Be aware, as we head further into the spring season, lift operation schedules will change. Check the spring lift operation plan to stay in the know and plan your spring on the slopes.
