Great mountain with lots of paths, different terrain levels, and a great fire pit at the bottom! Definitely worth the trip from CT!

Skied Friday and Saturday. The season has been challenging, but they have made huge snow. The food service offers excellent cooked to order items. The restaurants up hill offer a wide variety of items from pizza, chilli, dogs, stir-fry and panini's.

We've been coming to Sunday River for years and as a family we love it. They put their money where their mouth is when it comes to snowmaking so you are guaranteed some skiing when other mountains can't. Plus, at full capacity - if you...More
