We interrupt all regularly scheduled reports to bring you this news: Oz is open! Amidst the flurries, Patrol dropped the ropes on Eureka, Lost Princess, and Tin Woodsman just a little while ago and they are a fabulous, ungroomed paradise. Word from the hill: "SICK!!!!" Oz not to your liking? Take a run on an ungroomed Excalibur or a groomed Rogue Angel. Don't want to head to the Jordan? White Heat is covered side-to-side in white on the very aptly named White Cap. And that's what peak-to-peak skiing and snowboarding looks like, ladies and gentlemen. Toss in 27 park features between Dream Maker and T72, and we're having a serious case of Sunday Funday.
There's a solid snowmaking window through tomorrow, so the snowguns are set to blow on new terrain throughout the day. Both hotels are ski-in/ski-out, but some trails to access them may be advanced. The White Cap Quad has no easy way down. As always, please only tackle terrain that suits your abilities and be aware of Patrol signage. We'll be back at it tomorrow with 10 lifts from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM, and your ticket to ride is $79 for adults, $59 for teens, and $49 for juniors and seniors.
Wouldn't it be great if all of your friends could join you on-hill? Get your non-snowsporters on the slopes and into Perfect Turn Ski and Snowboard School's one-day clinics from $29 through January.
We'd love to spend the holidays with you, so we're offering ski and stay packages from $139 during Christmas week. It also happens to be College Weekend,which means that college students can ski and snowboard for $39, AND receive "bounce back" discounts for College Week in January.
Speaking of College Week, Red Bull Frozen Rush returns to Sunday River January 8-9, 2015 with 10 of the world's best off-road drivers, 900-horsepower Pro 4 trucks, studded tires, and, well, a party or two.
If you haven't purchased your New England Pass yet, now's the time, with a full winter season ahead that will stretch into early May. Not in the market for a season pass this winter? Pick up a Frequent Skier Card for a thrifty ticket window experience every day of the season, or plan to buy lift tickets online before your trip to save big.
