March 8, 2014 | Afternoon Update
Roll up those sleeves, Sunday River. It's a warm one out there today. On days like this, there really isn't much (if anything) to complain about. We see that sun, we feel that sun, and we ski this snow. It can't get better than this. Or can it? The sunshine and warm temperatures will stick around for tomorrow followed by some natural snowfall tomorrow night into Monday. We spoke too soon. It's always getting better here.
The groomers are a major part of why this Happy Place stays happy. Tonight, they'll take care of nearly 100 trails, leaving behind freshly groomed snow. Obsession, Black Hole, and Tempest will receive some extra love. Tomorrow, all 15 lifts will be open to guide you to our massive terrain.
In the terrain park world, the Near Canada Open course build has commenced over on Rocking Chair. T72 is sporting a superpipe, jump line, and over 20 jibs, including our Design-A-Feature Contest's winning urban plaza feature. The Dumont Cup course build will begin next week. Check out the Park Report for more info.
