Today at Sunday River

Wednesday afternoon, December 17, 2014

With snow coming down considerably at higher elevations, and some mixed precipitation lower on the mountain, it's a day for buttery, swooshing turns, no lift lines, and waterproof apparel. We're expecting a drop in temps, so the snowguns are going to work their wintry magic on Vortex, Airglow, Rogue Angel, Excalibur, White Heat, Firestar, Paradigm, South Paw, and Top Gun. We'll be slaying turns on White Heat and Lollapalooza this weekend for peak-to-peak skiing and riding, and might have a few surprises in store. The Parks Crew is at it again tonight, starting the build on a beginner park on Dream Maker for Friday. Is it the weekend yet? 

The Grand Summit Hotel is still ski-in/ski-out via intermediate and advanced terrain, while the Jordan is ski-out only, on lower Lollapalooza. As always, please only tackle terrain that suits your abilities. Lift tickets are $69 for adults, $49 for teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors and nine lifts will spin from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

Wouldn't it be great if all of your friends could join you on-hill? Get your non-snowsporters on the slopes and into Perfect Turn Ski and Snowboard School's one-day clinics from $29 through January.

We'd love to spend the holidays with you, so we're offering ski and stay packages from $139 during Christmas week. This weekend (December 20), we're having our own Festival of Lights celebration at the Peak Lodge, complete with night skiing. It also happens to be College Weekend,which means that college students can ski and snowboard for $39, AND receive "bounce back" discounts for College Week in January. 

Speaking of College Week, Red Bull Frozen Rush returns to Sunday River January 8-9, 2015 with 10 of the world's best off-road drivers, 900-horsepower Pro 4 trucks, studded tires, and, well, a party or two.

If you haven't purchased your New England Pass yet, now's the time, with a full winter season ahead that will stretch into early May. Not in the market for a season pass this winter? Pick up a Frequent Skier Card for a thrifty ticket window experience every day of the season, or plan to buy lift tickets online before your trip to save big.

Carve on,

Team Snow
