White Out Weekend

« All Events

Turn the WOW Factor to 11!

February 6, 2015 - February 8, 2015

Thrill, entertain, amuse, seduce: All synonyms for "wow." At Sunday River, we're so devoted to wowing you that we took an entire weekend and called it WOW! We're proud to host White Out Weekend (WOW) in association with Downeast Pride Alliance (DEPA) and OutRyders, New England's largest GLBTQ ski and snowboard club.

Sunday River brings eight peaks of great skiing and riding with the most dependable snow in New England, but at its core, WOW is all about good times with friends. As the name suggests, this weekend is full of special events and parties, including apres ski socials, fireworks, a zipline parade, and the weekend's headline event: a Hollywood Party at our mid-mountain Peak Lodge. 

WOW ski and stay packages include on-mountain lodging, lift tickets, and ski or snowboard clinics each day.

OutRyders is New England's largest gay and lesbian ski and snowboard club. They're all about great friends, great mountain fun, and great times together at off-mountain social events (and they get great trip Outrydersdeals too!). Formed in 2001, OutRyders is a nonprofit, all volunteer-run organization.

Après Ski Party - 3PM

Head up to the Foggy Goggle at South Ridge for some après ski fun! The drinks will be flowing with live music by Aldous Collins Band, called the Best Live Act in Massachusetts by Limelight Magazine. The Foggy Goggle is now offering $1 drafts every Friday night.

Welcome Social - 6-8PM

Join us at Camp, the rustic yet elegant new restaurant at the Grand Summit Hotel, for the White Out Weekend welcome party. Catch up with old friends, make new connections, and pull together your game plan for the weekend.

Tight n' Bright Party at the Matterhorn - 9:30PM

Back by popular demand, it's tight, bright, and out of this world. Featuring live music from Skosh, a five-piece funk/classic rock/blues band from Buckfield, Maine. Skosh has a reputation for "tight," well-rehearsed covers and energetic original songs. Cover charge is $10.

Saturday, February 7 

Meet n' Ski - 10AM

Get out of bed early Saturday for a Chondola ride up to the Peak Lodge where you can meet up with everyone from last night's party before taking a few morning-after runs on our eight peaks of white.

Zip Line Parade - 2-4PM

Who's faster? Liza or Marilyn? Get your ski drag on and let's zip. Come to the twin zips as your favorite skiing celebrity or queen and you will be able to zipline for free! Show us your glam self on our side-by-side ziplines. And save those clothes for the Hollywood Party at the Peak later (details below).

Après Ski Party - 3-6PM

After you catch some turns Saturday, stop by the Foggy Goggle at South Ridge for some après ski fun. The drinks will be flowing with live music by Aldous Collins Band, called the Best Live Act in Massachusetts by Limelight Magazine.

Rum Cocktail Party - 6-8PM

If you like rum, this is the party for you. If you don't like rum, this party is still for you. If the Foggy Goggle is not your cup of tea, then this might be the place to be. Enjoy a nice highball at Sliders in the Jordan Hotel before heading up to the big Hollywood Party at the Peak.

Hollywood Party - 9PM

One of our biggest parties of the year, the Peak Party never disappoints. The theme this year is Hollywood, so if you make a beautiful Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, or Zorro ("Of course! The pointy end goes into the other man!"), strut your stuff at the Peak Lodge and show Sunday River what you got. WOW's favorite DJ Maryalice will be back again this year to throw a killer party like always. Cover is $25.

DJ Maryalice has been spinning her signature upbeat and energetic sound for three decades. Resident DJ and vibe manager at the Boatslip Resort in Provincetown since 1994, Maryalice seamlessly blends progressive and disco house, tribal and top 40 dance music for thousands of avid club goers at the resort's legendary afternoon Tea Dance.

Bloody Mary Bye Bye - 10AM
