Your Holiday Gift Guide

FOR 2023

This year, skip the frantic gift hunt.

Our ultimate gift guide is here to help you nail the perfect presents for skiers, riders, and après fans.

For those just starting out

A Lesson: Give the gift of a ski lesson—choose from group or private sessions directly through our SnowSports School.

Socks: Start their kit out strong with a pair of ski socks. Ski socks are designed for optimal fit, comfort, and warmth while you’re out on the slopes, so check out our range of sizes, cushions, and colors.

Gloves: Waterproof gloves are a must, particularly on our damper days here in New England. Find a pair with a wrist gaiter, ties, or even a sewn-in goggle wipe.

Neck Gaiters: Great for chilly days and for adding some color to the outfit. From fleece-lined, wicking, or even balaclava options, help the new shredder keep their face and neck warm.

Intermediate shredders

For those who love cruising blues

Ski Straps: Help them keep their gear together while traveling or at the lodge—no more fumbling with skis and boots.

Boot Bag: A boot bag is a perfect way to keep everything together. With side compartments specifically designed for ski or snowboard boots, and a middle compartment for a helmet, gloves, and shell coat, a boot bag is a great way keep equipment in one place.

Goggles: Investing in a nice pair of goggles is a game changer, with most new goggles coming with at least two lenses for sunny or cloudy days. Pick a fun band print for a pop of color and throw in a goggle sock as a stocking stuffer to help prevent scratches.

Boot Fitting: Enhance comfort and performance with custom insoles for their boots—transforming ski days for the better. Check out this blog post for more details.

For those who are next level

Diamond Stone and Edge File: Maintain sharp ski edges between tunes with versatile diamond stones, available in various grits. Pair with an edge file for precise edge angle maintenance.

Ski Bag: For frequent travelers, a ski bag keeps gear intact and shields skis from travel wear.

Heated Vest or Gloves: We all have that one friend who is always cold, no matter the layers or hand warmers. The answer to their problems: heated layers. Powered by a rechargeable battery pack, heated vests and gloves will keep them warm, day after day.

The Gift of a Demo Day: Gift a ski demo day at Sunday River Sports, allowing them to explore and apply the demo cost toward a ski purchase from top brands like Volkl, Stockli, Rossignol, and more.

Comfy and Casual

For the Après Lover

Barware: Elevate après-ski with Sunday River-branded glassware or durable silicon options in various colors.

Sweatshirt: Stay cozy by the fire with our range of hoodies from top brands like The North Face, Cotopaxi, and more—including sizes for kids.

Skiopoly: Gift the latest Monopoly version featuring New England ski resorts for a fun twist on the classic game night.

Spa Treatments: Treat them to massages, facials, and more at Jordan Spa, with access to the hotel's fitness center and a boutique offering brands like Lululemon and Beyond Yoga.

Choosing the perfect gift can be challenging despite our best efforts. If you're still uncertain, Sunday River gift cards offer endless possibilities. They can be purchased online and in person, and can be redeemed at any location owned by Sunday River at the resort or the online store
