Today at Sunday River|
March 9, 2014 | Afternoon Update
We may have lost an hour of sleep last night, but we won another beautiful day here at Sunday River. Have you looked at the forecast recently? Let's just say, the clocks are the only thing springing ahead around here. Snow tonight. Snow tomorrow. Snow Wednesday. And snow Thursday. "How much?" You ask. We're expecting a few inches to accumulate between tonight and tomorrow and up to 10 inches of the natural stuff between Wednesday and Thursday. Like we always say, this Happy Place is only getting happier.
The grooming crew will take care of nearly 100 trails this evening, leaving behind that soft corduroy we all love so much. Right Stuff, Excalibur, and Rogue Angel will receive some extra love tonight. Just a heads up, the top of T72 and the superpipe will be closed starting tomorrow till Thursday as our parks crew build the Dumont Cup course. Rocking Chair will be closed tomorrow for the Near Canada Open course build. So much going on. So much to look forward to.
In the terrain park world, the Near Canada Open course build has commenced over on Rocking Chair. Remember, the trail will be closed tomorrow for this reason. T72 is sporting a superpipe, jump line, and over 20 jibs, including our Design-A-Feature Contest's winning urban plaza feature. The top of T72 and the superpipe will be closed Monday through Thursday this week for the Dumont Cup course build. Check out the Park Report for more info.
