Mountain Report

July Update

Summer is in full swing here at the resort. While we are always dreaming of powder days and corduroy cruises, we're still having plenty of fun. From the Mountain Park to local swimming holes there are nearly endless activities on-resort and surrounding area to keep you busy all summer long. If you're looking for something extra special, we have a long list of events this summer to fill up your calendar.

Featured Activities

The Sunday River Country Club is officially open for the season under new ownership. They are only one of three resorts in New England to receive 2017 Golf Magazine Top 100 Public Course in the USA. The Golf Shop also relocated upstairs in the clubhouse and is stocked with new merchandise. And you can now book your tee time on their website.

L.L.Bean Outdoor Discover Schools has it's only non-store location right here at Sunday River. Now in its fourth season, they've added a new course, SUP Yoga, in addition to stand-up paddle boarding, archery, and kayaking. Course schedules and rates are available over here.

With the Mountain Park open*, we have a new addition to the fun: E-Bikes! Late last summer, our 18-hole disc golf course got a complete makeover and it's definitely a must for disc golf rookies and veterans alike. Plus there's mountain biking and hiking and a six-line zipline tour, to name just a few of the Mountain Park activities.

*The Mountain Park will be closed for public access Friday, July 6 to Saturday, July 7 for River Rock Festival.

Events

Travis Pastrana returns to the New England Forest Rally on July 21-22. Spectators can witness top national competitors up close as they showcase their skills over two days and multiple stages. VIP spectator bus tickets include access to a luxury motorcoach, catered lunch, and beverages, which are on sale now.

River Rock Festival, New England's premier Christian music celebration, is back for another year July 7-8. Tickets are on sale at the official River Rock website. Please note the Mountain Park operations are limited during this weekend. Check out our Mountain Park schedule for all the details.

We might be biased, but the Tough Mountain Challenge is THE event of the summer in all of the land. The 5k-ish adventure race isn't like those other guys, unless shotgunning a beer mid-way through is becoming the norm. With the excitement so high, we've added an additional three heats this year. If you're thinking about it, better sign up before the price increase on July 16. On Sunday, July 30, the Mini Mountain Challenge gives all the little humans a chance to tackle their own course. Registration for Mini Mountain Challenge is officially open. We highly recommend signing up ASAP so guarantee your kids get a t-shirt.

*NEW EVENT* The Maine Brew Festival. September 8-10 features upwards of 50 Maine craft beers plus a disc golf tournament, live music, Full Moon Beer Dinner, and more. We'll follow this September Session up next April with our Spring Session during Springfest Weekend. Tickets are on sale now with limited VIP tickets.


Of course, winter is always on our mind, which is why we're starting right away on installing our new Spruce Peak Triple chairlift. We'll keep you posted on its progress on our blog. During the last week of June, a special explosives team came in to remove the old concrete footings. And we definitely had some fun with it in our latest video
