With so much nice weather in the forecast, now is definitely the time to take advantage of the L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools, available Monday through Thursday here at Sunday River. Head to the Grand Summit Hotel for how-to courses in archery, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding, and guided kayak and SUP tours. The Sunday River Golf Club, featuring a scenic 18-hole course, is also open daily for public play. You can always find your happy place on all eight peaks with a trek on our hiking trails!
Come Thursday, you can get more bang for your buck because we offer both the L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools programs and the Adventure Park. Every Thursday through Sunday, from 10AM to 4PM escape the heat with a zipline rush, ride the Chondola, jump on the bungee trampoline, climb the rock wall, and toss some discs for just $25 with the Adventure Pass , or enjoy each activity a la carte. Group zipline tours are also available.
The Sunday River Bike Park will be open this weekend, too, with 20 miles of lift-serviced terrain. After receiving lots of love, Easy Tiger is open, and the park crew is moving on to work on Lower Crater. Rock Star looks great, and but it's going to look even better once the upper section is tucked into the woods. Need more time to perfect your downhill skills? Sign up for a lesson from one of our PMBIA-certified Mountain Bike School instructors on a new Specialized Status 1 rental bike with our Mountain Bike School.
Sunday River Sports, located in the South Ridge Lodge, is your one-stop shop for gear and Adventure Park tickets all summer long, open from 9AM to 4:30PM every Thursday through Sunday.
And let's not forget about all of those wicked sweet summer events coming up. On July 17 and 18, catch the New England Forest Rally for fast speeds, sick rides, and pros like Travis Pastrana, Ken Block, and David Higgins.
Tough Mountain Challenge (July 25) is just around the corner, and if you procrastinated signing up for this sold out, completely awesome mud race, you're still in for a treat. On July 24, put on your party pants and join us for the Big Ass Bash with plenty of food and beer, a fireworks show, and a free concert from Rustic Overtones. TMC racers can join the party after early check-in to get psyched for the big day. Saturday is filthy with excitement, from heat after heat of Tough Mountain madness, the Mini Mountain Challenge, and the after party. Don't miss a minute of the action--lodging packages are available from $99.
Relive the magic and the memories of the winter season with our 2014/15 season highlight reel and just remember we had the best six months ever. We will see you again soon because we'll be hauling out those snow guns again in only a few months. In the meantime, don't forget to purchase your 2015/16 New England Passes before October 12 to receive our pre-season rates, then sit back and relax this summer knowing that next winter is already in the bag.
Let's get outside!
