Fall is in the Air

September 19, 2022

Can you believe it's halfway through September already? The month is flying by, and over here at the River, we couldn't be more excited. As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, we know that means the return of our favorite season is on the horizon. Still, we don't want to speed too quickly through fall, a criminally underrated time to visit Western Maine. The fall colors are slowly starting to pop and the breeze is certainly chillier than it was only a few weeks ago. Maybe it's time for a road trip to the mountains, huh?

Looking ahead, we've got Fall Fest on October 8-9. The North American Wife Carrying Championship returns on Saturday, and the prize is a big one: win the wife's weight in beer, and FIVE TIMES her weight in cash! This classic SR event shouldn't be missed. And don't forget the New England Cornhole Championship on Sunday - 48 teams will compete, but only one will be crowned winner. Looking to stay the weekend? Lock in your lodging now to make sure you've got a place to crash after the festivities. 

Planning for winter? Secure your New England Pass for season-long access to the most dependable snow in New England, or check out our ticket packs for even bigger savings. Brand new for this year, check out the Maine Pack for 4 days to use at Sunday River, Sugarloaf, and Pleasant Mountain. While you're browsing, don't forget to check out Lift Tickets, Lodging, and lessons through our Snowsports School. We'll be sliding on snow in no time, so plan now and save big.

September marks the last full month of operation at the Sunday River Golf Club! Tee times are open, so book early to secure the lowest rates. Many of our Saturdays are close to fully sold out. Stay & Play packages are also available to save even more on your next favorite golf vacation. These packages are only available by phone, so call (877) 346-0451 to book. 

Looking for a casual way to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Western Maine?  Join us Saturday & Sunday from 10AM - 4PM for a ride up to the top of North Peak on our Chondola. Enjoy sweeping views of the Mahoosuc Mountains, including Maine's fourth highest peak, Old Speck. Scenic lift rides are dog, kid, and grandparent-friendly, so pack up the whole family. Tickets can be pre-purchased here

South Ridge has a few new features including Sunny's beer garden and outdoor activities like corn hole, badminton, and giant Jenga.    

Weekly Trail Report 

September 23, 2022

It's a great time to hit the trails. Head to the top of one of Sunday River's peaks for a cool breeze and phenomenal views of Western Maine, the White Mountains, and the Mahoosuc Mountains. The fall colors are juuuust starting to peek out from behind the lush green. Don't forget to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, suitable footwear, some layers, and some salty snacks to replace what you sweat out. Water bottle filling stations are located in South Ridge Lodge, as well as the hotels. The mountain received lots of heavy rain this week, so please be wary of washed-out trails. 

Trails E and A are open from North Peak, but with a little detour; head to Second Mile and take a left up Three Mile to connect. If you’re not sure of your route, please check with the Chondola operators to make sure you have a safe plan. Due to construction, be on the lookout for additional trail closure signage this week including  North Peak and the bottom of the Spruce Triple. 

Construction is nearly wrapped up on North Peak, but there may still be some heavy machinery in that area from time to time. Please be wary of large holes and don't hike alone if you are unsure of your abilities. Expect frequent changes to access routes to trails H (kid’s Adventure Trail) and E (Summit Traverse) from the top of the Chondola. If you are having trouble finding your way, please ask one of our knowledgeable lift operators or patrollers and they will be able to assist you! 

Looking to take a trail less traveled? Trail B, accessible from the Jordan Hotel, sees far less foot traffic than some of our other trails. Please be aware of construction surrounding this trail, however, and please adhere to all posted signs and warnings. Do not cross orange ropes or enter areas beyond “no trespassing” or “trail closed due to construction” signs.

There are plenty of tables and chairs around North Peak lodge for you to enjoy a picnic lunch or sunny siesta with a view, but please remember to dispose of your trash and recycling at the top or bottom of the lift.

Construction continues on Barker Mountain Rd. During the week, Monday - Friday, there will be limited access depending where the crew is working. Most access will be allowed via Cascade Hotel Hill Dr. Weekend traffic will flow as normal.

If you are injured or need assistance at any point, please contact Patrol at (207)-824-5350 or visit our First Aid Clinic in the bottom of the South Ridge Lodge next to Betty's Treats and Treasures.

 

DINING & SHOPPING

Our dining and retail outlets have reduced hours during the summer and fall. Make sure to check the River Guide for the most updated information. 

SCENIC LIFT TICKETS

All tickets need to be purchased online in advance. Have your RFID from last year? You can head straight to the lift! Otherwise, head to a Pick Up Box with your confirmation email for contactless printing.

CASHLESS PAYMENT

We are now accepting cashless forms of payment only. Please be sure to have a gift card, resort charge, credit card, or debit card available for on-site purchases. Cash may be used to purchase a gift card only.

BAG STORAGE

Please use outdoor cubbies provided at South Ridge and Barker Lodge, or store your bags in your car. All unattended bags or loose items left inside will be removed.

Fresh Snow 6-10" of new snow
