A transformative Leap Ahead
The Barker 6, one of the most advanced and fastest 6-person chairlifts in North America, is now open. A Doppelmayr D-Line design, the lift will feature ergonomic heated seats, an automatically lowering and locking restraining bar, weather-blocking bubbles in our signature Sunday River Red, and improved wind resistance. This addition to the resort is a pivotal step forward in our Sunday River 2030 plan, and alongside the Jordan 8, forms a transcendent duo of Doppelmayr's flagship lifts.
Servicing beloved terrain from White Cap to North Peak, the Barker 6 will whisk skiers to the summit of Barker Mountain, providing a fast and comfortable ride from one of the most popular base areas at the resort.
In addition to the Barker 6 this summer, Sunday River will install a second Doppelmayr fixed grip triple on Merrill Hill, opening the door for future ski trails and real estate development. Last summer, the resort installed the Jordan 8, North America's fastest 8-person chairlift, servicing terrain across Oz and Jordan Bowl peaks.
