Coming Winter 2022-23
Bigger. Better. Bolder.
The next step in the Sunday River 2030 plan is here. The Jordan 8, coming winter 2022-23, is one of the most advanced chairlifts in in the world, and the fastest 8-person chairlift in North America. A Doppelmayr D-Line design, the lift features ergonomic heated seats, the first weather-blocking bubbles in the world in our signature Sunday River Red, and is built to withstand wind.
The Jordan 8 services terrain on the Oz and Jordan Bowl peaks. This part of Sunday River will come to be known as the Western Reserve as future terrain development plans come to life in the several thousand acres of land beyond Jordan Bowl.
The Jordan 8 is one of three chairlift upgrades to come in the next three years. Sunday River is currently installing a Doppelmayr fixed-grip triple chairlift on Merrill Hill, a new real estate development featuring mountaintop home sites. Merrill Hill’s lift and ski terrain are expected to open for select dates only during the 2021-22 season, with a grand opening scheduled for winter 2022-23. The current Jordan Bowl Express, a high-speed quad, will be redesigned and rebuilt on Barker Mountain to replace the Barker Mountain Express for winter 2023-24, sporting a 33% increase in uphill capacity and a 25% increase in speed.
The terminal at the top of Jordan Bowl will be reconfigured to increase wind resistance.
Jordan 8 acts as a gateway to the Western Reserve terrain, including Oz, Jordan Bowl, and beyond.
