Activity header: Summer Chairlift Ride

Scenic Lift Rides


Ride the Chondola up to Sunday River's North Peak to take in views of the Sunday River Valley and Mahoosuc Mountain Range. You can ride the lift back down or choose from a number of hiking trails. Our scenic lift rides are dog-friendly! We only require your pup to be on a leash or under voice command. 

During the summer and fall, Sunday River offers scenic rides on its Chondola lift to the top of North Peak, giving visitors spectacular views of the Mahoosuc Mountains and Sunday River Valley. Visible within a short walk from the top are all eight of Sunday River's peaks, along with the entire Mahoosuc Range, including Old Speck Mountain - the third highest peak in Maine. For the ride up, guests can choose between open chairs or enclosed gondola cabins. For the return trip, choose to ride down in a gondola cabin, hike down one of our recommended trails, or rent some discs to bring with you and take advantage of our 18-hole disc golf course.
