This past weekend, The 7th Annual Dumont Cup was held here at Sunday River and a huge success. This event combines top amateur freeskiers from around the world with the sport's best pros. Taking home first place was Olympic medalist Bobby Brown, with a close second place finish from amateur Teal Harle and X-Games medalist James Wood coming in third. Check out The 7th Annual Dumont Cup page for more results and photos.
The top of T72 will reopen to the public with the Dumont Cup course. The jump line will reopen Tuesday, March 31 followed by the rail garden reopening on Wednesday, April 1. Think you can throw down on the gnarly features the athletes in The Dumont Cup did? Here's your chance to find out! At the bottom of T72 you'll find the Jib Park which is accessible from Ridge Run and Dream Maker. Here, you'll find the some of the biggest features here at Sunday River. Right before you get to T72, you'll find 3D. In this progression park, you'll find four jumps (two at the top and two at the bottom) and four features in between. But on your way down to these parks, hit the three features at the top of Dream Maker to warm up. Over at South Ridge, we can't forget about Whoville, our beginner park for those just starting out and perfecting skills. If you're not into these type of park features, head on over to Barker where on Rocking Chair you'll find a family cross that's filled with fast and fun berms and rollers.
