Maine Beer Company Tap Takeover

Foggy Goggle, 11AM-12AM

Sip on delicious craft beer from Maine Beer Company at the Foggy Goggle. We'll start pouring Lunch, Dinner, Fall, and Peeper at 11AM, and will keep it going until the kegs kick. 

Night Skiing

South Ridge and North Peak, 4-8PM

Join us for the opening weekend of night skiing with lit terrain on South Ridge and North Peak. Tickets for night skiing are only $5.

Visit with Santa

South Ridge Lodge, 4-5PM

Every Winterfest, Santa visits the South Ridge Lodge. He arrives with all the bells and whistles--literally. Kids of all ages can come to tell Santa whether they have been nice or naughty, their Christmas wishes, and walk away with something from the North Pole.  

Kids Buffet

Camp in the Grand Summit Hotel, 5-9pm

Fuel up for more evening fun at the Kids Buffet at Camp, where you'll find chicken fingers, mac and cheese, corn, and tater tots. Cost is $12 per child ages 12 and under. 

Torchlight Parade & Fireworks

South Ridge, 8:15PM Torch Light, 8:30PM Fireworks

Just like lighting candles on a cake, Sunday River will light its trails up with torches-- fifty-nine to be exact. Come to South Ridge to view some of Sunday River's finest skiers and riders whisk down to South Ridge with large lit torches. The icing on the cake? An amazing fireworks show to follow. But, just wait, the party is just getting started...

Birthday Bash

Foggy Goggle, time 9PM-12 AM 

Turn up the volume and the good times at the Foggy Goggle. Live entertainment this year is Fighting Fiction.  The Birthday Bash this year is "Ugly Holiday Sweater" themed. Everyone attending should wear their ugliest sweater for free entry into the party. The River Fund will also be collecting donations and selling cash-only raffle tickets for some great prize packs.
