Today at Sunday River
April 17, 2014
Bluebird. Nothing but bluebird.
That is the name of the game today [and tomorow, if you're asking]. Not a cloud to be seen across the morning sky and we're going to do nothing but enjoy every sun-kissed corduroy run after run. With temps expected to reach the 40s, look for a few naturals to schuss up the spring snow. And it all starts at 9 a.m. at the Barker Express.
While skiing and riding today, please be aware of natural obstacles and posted signage as conditions may be varried. Also, there is no easy way down from the top of the mountain so we recommend skiing and riding for intermediates and experts only today. All services are out of the Barker Lodge with the exception of the season pass desk at the Welcome Center in South Ridge base lodge.
Sunday we're celebrating the holiday with a Easter Sunrise Service atop of Barker Mountain. Lifts load at 6:45 a.m. for 7:00 a.m. service. There will be no skiing down access until after the service is complete and the mountain is open at 8 a.m.. Then at 9 a.m. in the South Ridge base area, kids are invited to search for eggs and hang out with Eddy the Yeti and his friend Betty. Don't forget to bring a basket! And, to remember there is no ski-in/ski-out access from the Easter Egg Hunt.
Looking for carnage...er, video from last weekend's Pond-A-Palooza event? It's all right here.
Lift tickets for the week and through the weekend are $39 for adults and $29 for college students, teens, juniors and seniors. Or, if you already picked up a 2014-15 Season Pass you can use it now for free. If you don't have next year's pass yet, now's the time. All 2014-15 Season Passes are on sale at their lowest rates through April 30, and you have the option of paying in full and skiing for free now or putting just $50 down now then paying the balance over the summer with our Easy Pay Plan. It's a great way to lock in the lowest price on next year's pass, but the payment plan goes away and prices go up after April 30 so don't miss out.
Gearing up for Free Ski Day,
