Today at Sunday River **********************
It's the kind of day where we on Team Snow hate having a "desk job," so to speak. Rather than enjoying all of the snow, which is now up to five inches across the mountain, we're inside, overheating in an abundance of layers and ski boots, and wishing we were out there shredding with you. Yes, the skiing and riding is that good on this fine Wednesday. In fact, we have the most open terrain in the East, as patrol dropped ropes on much of our natural terrain and glades through the course of the day. So go ahead and take a run for us—be it bashing bumps on Shockwave, cruising down Lazy River, or dodging trees in Wizard's Gulch.
Tonight, the grooming team will be hitting the hill nice and early to churn the fresh snow into extra soft stripes for tomorrow morning. Forecasts are calling for up to two more inches of snow overnight, so we may see some freshies by morning as well. Tomorrow, temperatures will run in the high 20s to low 30s at the summit, and mid to high 40s at the base with flurries flying throughout the day, and winds will be mild out of the west. To supplement those flurries, our snowmaking team will be blowing snow on Cowardly Lion and the top of Lost Princess once again in hopes of spinning the Oz Quad this weekend.
The parks crew has been quite busy as of late. Overnight, they put the final touches on the mini pipe in Wonderland, and tonight, they'll be focusing on a rebuild on T72, including work on the Superpipe, and in Who-Ville! Additionally, the Flow State family boardercross is fast, fun, and turny.
If you want to make the most of the great conditions this weekend, there is no better way to do so than to staying slopeside. We are offering some great ski and stay packages this weekend with rooms from $149 and ski and stay packages from $159 in both the Grand Summit and Jordan Hotels. If you're over 50 and holding off until next week to hit the slopes, be sure to check out lodging packages, events, and activities for our favorite young-at-heart skiers and riders during Go50 Week.
As always, make sure to save on lift tickets by purchasing online in advance, or snag a New England Pass for unlimited skiing and riding all winter long.
