Today at Sunday River **********************
After a few days with our heads in the clouds, plus half a foot of snow in the past 5, the sun is making an appearance! And with stellar conditions across all eight peaks, we're certain that there's a wicked good Wednesday in store. Temperatures will hang in the high 20s to low 30s at the summit today, and the high 30s to low 40s at the base as clouds clear out and let the sunshine in. And looking beyond today? There's up to 7 inches of new snow in the forecast for Friday and Saturday, so you know we're extra excited.
Overnight, the grooming team put their tillers to over 80 trails, leaving the rest of our open terrain au natural. In between laps, be sure to head over to Barker to catch a glimpse of the U.S. Ski Team members as they barrel down T2 and Monday Mourning during the Olympic Qualifier Alpine Combined Races, best viewed trailside or from the Barker Bar deck.
This weekend we have one of our most anticipated events of the year, Spring Festival presented by Bud Light. This year's event features a Beach Party Rave on Friday, the 3rd Annual Slip 'n' Flip and Margarita Mixoff on Saturday, as well as live music. So, even though the snow will be falling, the drinks will be flowing, and we'll be channeling our inner beach bum.
As we head further into the spring season, lift operation schedules will change. Check the spring lift operation plan to stay in the know and plan your spring on the slopes.
