College Week—Sunday River’s annual College Week takes place January 7–11, 2013, and caters to students looking to take a hiatus from the books to spend a week on the slopes partying with their peers. With special ski and stay vacation packages available for the week, as well as “One Night Stand” packages available to kids who just can’t commit, college kids don’t have to be math majors to see the savings when lodging, lift tickets, and Perfect Turn clinics are included in all packages.
College Week is a mid-term celebration that includes live entertainment, nightly parties, games, fireworks, and concerts as well as some last-minute surprises.
Children’s Festival Week—Families flock to Sunday River for their one-stop shop for fun and savings. Children’s Week takes place January 14–18, 2013, and offers adult ski and stay packages that include lift tickets, lodging, and Perfect Turn clinics. Best part? Children ages 4–12 ski free, lodge free, rent equipment for free, and take lessons for free when families stay three nights or longer.
