A Sunny Santa Sunday
Happy Santa Sunday, Sunday River!
We are looking at a nice Sunday for our Santa Sunday celebrations. Noon temperatures today will be in the low 20s at the summit and low 30s at base with a steady breeze today but we expect a fair dosage of Vitamin D, with partly to mostly sunny conditions.
Groomers were out and freshened up all open terrain for today, so enjoy that corduroy. Snowmaking continued last night, working hard to allow us to open some new terrain and connect Barker and South Ridge in the near future.
Our 17th Annual Santa Sunday festivities will be taking place today on Barker, with morning Santa registration from 7:30-10AM and the running of the beards at 11. 250 Santa's will be skiing/riding down Ecstasy and Sunday Punch, with access to Ecstasy closed to non-St. Nick's, while Sunday Punch will remain open. The Aurora Tripe will be running so guests can still get up the hill while our Santa's are loaded (sorry, no reindeer and sleigh).
T-2 will be closed to the public today due to competition race events but Right Stuff will remain open.
The Chondola, Aurora Peak Quad, Locke Triple and Barker Mountain Express will spin at 8AM, with the last chair for uploading on the Chondola, Locke Triple and Barker Express at 3PM, and the last chair for the Aurora Quad at 3:15PM. You'll be able to download on the Chondola to return to South Ridge after those times.
*At this point, terrain on Barker and Aurora is not connected, so please see one of our friendly shuttle drivers for a lift to ski and ride both peaks.*
Early season ticket prices tomorrow will be: $59 for adults, $49 for teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors if you buy at the ticket window, but you can save by purchasing tickets online in advance. If you plan on skiing Sunday River, Sugarloaf, and Loon Mountain this winter, lock in a New England Pass for access to all three mountains all season long.
Gift yourself and the family to an early Christmas present this year! We're offering rooms at the Grand Summit for $129 per night, the Jordan for $119 per night, and the Snow Cap Inn from $79 over the next three weekends, with no minimum stay. Availability is limited - call 800-543-2754 to book.
If that wasn't enough of a deal, check out what else we've got for ya. Our Three-Day Lift Ticket Deal allows you to score three-day weekend lift tickets for $109, valid the next three weekends starting Friday or Saturday.
