The Gifts of Grooming

This just in: the Locke Mountain Triple is open after a complete replacement of its top terminal this fall. Take a slow and steady ride up to the top of Locke, give those lift operators and lift mechanics a fist bump, and cruise down T2 and Upper Sunday Punch! 

Our groomers got to work and put down fresh stripes on all open terrain, gifting us with some nice smooth conditions to kick-start our first weekend of December. This wonderful gift will allow for skiing and riding on three peaks (Locke, Barker and Aurora) all weekend long. Our grooming team won't be the only ones on the hill this weekend with a bag of gifts. Tomorrow is our 17th Annual Santa Sunday—details below!

For today, we are expecting partly cloudy conditions with the chance of flurries mid-mountain to summit as the day progresses. Temperatures at the summit in the low 20s and temperature at the base in mid to upper 30s. Expect a slight increase in wind at the summit today so make sure to have an extra layer prepped.

Race training will continue on T2 and Right Stuff, however, these trails will remain open to the public. 

The Chondola, Aurora Peak Quad and Barker Mountain Express are set to spin at 8AM, with the last chair for uploading on the Chondola at 3PM, and the last chair for the Aurora Quad at 3:15PM. You'll be able to download on the Chondola to return to South Ridge after those times.  Keep an eye on the morning update with the possibility of the Locke Triple running this weekend as well. At this point, terrain on Barker and Aurora is not connected, so please see one of our friendly shuttle drivers for a lift to ski and ride both peaks.

Early season ticket prices will change today to: $59 for adults, $49 for teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors if you buy at the ticket window, but you can save by purchasing tickets online in advance. If you plan on skiing Sunday River, Sugarloaf, and Loon Mountain this winter, lock in a New England Pass for access to all three mountains all season long.

Santa Claus is coming to Sunday River! Our 17th Annual Santa Sunday is tomorrow, Sunday December 4 with the running of the beards located on either Barker or South Ridge depending on conditions. Keep your eye on the Mountain Report for updates on location.

Gift yourself and the family to an early Christmas present this year!  We're offering rooms at the Grand Summit for $129 per night, the Jordan for $119 per night, and the Snow Cap Inn from $79 over the next three weekends, with no minimum stay. Availability is limited - call 800-543-2754 to book.

If that wasn't enough of a deal, check out what else we've got for ya. Our Three-Day Lift Ticket Deal allows you to score three-day weekend lift tickets for $109, valid the next three weekends starting Friday or Saturday.

Keep up to date and well informed on all upcoming events through our Events Calendar.

Keep Those Tips Up,
