Overview

Sunday River is among the best ski resorts in New England. It ranks high for snowmaking, grooming, modern lifts, and a long reliable season starting in October and often the first ski resort in New England to open. Halloween skiing through April, even May is where the River shines. We ski all over the globe and find the best snowmaking and grooming at The River on eight peaks of ski terrain. We also get the most skiing in here with the speedy well-located lifts connecting the eight peaks from White Cap to Locke Mountain, to Barker, to Spruce, North Peak, and Aurora, to Oz and Jordan Bowl. Sunday River is the second biggest ski resort in New England, second only to Maine sister ski resort Sugarloaf with over 1,000-acres.

great snowmaking, well-laid out lifts. my family loves this place, I think it is very good, but a little sterile and corporate in feel.
