Today at Sunday River
**********************

Some spectacular weather, combined with some quality conditions on the slopes made for a great afternoon of skiing. All of Team Snow hit the hill today and numerous team members proclaimed it to be the best conditions they have seen so far this season, some even going as far as to say better than anything last season as well. Not a bad Tuesday wouldn't you say?

If great conditions weren't enough to bring a smile from ear to ear, then the news of fresh terrain openings delivered to our doorstep today definitely was. Due to the relentless work of our snowmaking and grooming teams, we are looking at new ropes being dropped over the next 48 hours and even more for the weekend. 

Barker Mountain and Aurora Peak will finally be connected with the opening of new terrain on South Ridge plus Grand Rapids, Tourist Trap, Lazy River and Lower Risky Business. Add Monday Mourning to the mix on Locke Mountain, and we're nearly doubling our open terrain.

The Chondola, Aurora Peak Quad, and Barker Mountain Express will spin at 9AM again tomorrow, with the last chair on the Chondola at 3PM, the Aurora Quad at 3:15PM, and Barker Express at 3:45PM. Access to and from Aurora Peak is via the Chondola in both directions, with shuttles connecting South Ridge and Barker base areas but as you have just learned, we'll be skiing down from the Chondola by this weekend.

With our new terrain, we will be set up for a great weekend of fun topped off with Maine Day this Sunday, December 11. Maine residents will get the chance to snag $39 lift tickets and discounted rental and learn to ski/ride packages. 

Not a Mainer? You can still take advantage of $109 three-day weekend lift tickets and weekend lodging from $79 if you act fast.

Lift tickets prices continue tomorrow at $59 for adults, $49 for teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors, but for the best price purchase your tickets online in advance. To make the most of your winter, check out the New England Pass and College New England Pass for unlimited skiing at Sunday River, Loon, and Sugarloaf all season long.
