Indie Demo Day

South Ridge, 8AM- 2PM
Try out the latest goods from top independent ski and snowboard companies. Register in the Welcome Center at the South Ridge Lodge with a credit card and ID, then hit the slopes and pick up equipment uphill from the Chondola. All you'll need is your own boots and a lift ticket or season pass.  There is no charge for demos, but we keep your credit card on file to make sure all equipment is returned. Brands will include Amalgam, Meier, Parlor, Liberty and Never Summer Snowboards.

Tap Takeover: Ricker Hill Hard Cider & Orono Brewing Company

Foggy Goggle, 11am-12am

As winners of the Spring and September Session of the Maine Brew Fest, we welcome back Ricker Hill Hard Cider and Orono Brewing Company to the Goggle to pour their best brews for the holiday weekend.

Live music with Fast Times

Foggy Goggle, 3-6PM
The only thing that makes apres in the Foggy Goggle even more fun is live music. Fast Times is one of the most popular bands to hit Sunday River every winter as they rock out with covers. We dare you not to sing along.

Murder Mystery Dinner: Midnight at the Masquerade

Shipyard Brew Haus at White Cap Lodge, 7:30PM

The rustle of silks and feathers under muted conversation was probably the last thing heard by the tragically and unexpectedly deceased at the Billionaires' Club Annual Masquerade Ball. With a mystery under each feathery façade, unmasking the killer may be quite a challenge. It's up to you to determine which partygoer is guilty, bring this crime to justice, and save the party! Tickets on sale now. 

Fire Dancer

South Ridge, 7:45PM & 8:15PM

Hoopalula fire dancing has become a staple in heating up our winters. Diane's energetic fire dancing routines blend a high-intensity mixture of various flaming apparatus's set to music. Two frree shows slopeside at 7:45 and 8:15 followed by fireworks at 8:30.

Live Music with Jameson Four

Foggy Goggle, 9pm-12am
Roll into the Goggle by 8:30 to watch the fireworks from the deck, then stay for the live music party. We can promise lots of drinks, lots of people, and lots of fun throughout the evening.
