Eddy the Yeti
Our Winter Friend.
Local legend was that a yeti lived on Old Speck Mountain just north of the Sunday River since the late 1950s, around the same time Sunday River first opened for skiing. A shy creature by nature, the yeti seldom left his home and was spotted around the ski area only on rare occasions.
In 2009, sightings of the yeti increased in frequency. Some say he may have been drawn down to the resort by the fireworks display the night of Sunday River's 50th birthday celebration. Once here, the yeti slowly began to make friends with skiers and snowboarders, and over time he was given the name Eddy by the friends he made.
Today, Eddy the Yeti can still be elusive but is seen regularly around the resort. Sometimes Eddy is found high on the mountain, sometimes he explores the woods, and sometimes he can be seen walking around the base area greeting the skiers and snowboarders. Eddy scares easily and rarely makes an appearance for more than a short period of time, but remains friendly and curious, and enjoys making new friends - especially kids.
When can I see Eddy?
Eddy comes down from the mountains and visits us every Saturday at 11:30AM starting December 21. You can see him walking around the South Ridge Lodge and slopeside out in front of SnowSports School. In addition, both Eddy and Betty make special appearances throughout the season.
