I love coming to Sunday River, the people are lovely and always having fun, playing great music at the base of each lift. I find the price a bit high for this resort with slow ski lifts and long lines. It really eats into your day. Other than this, if weather permitting the snow is great and they add snow if it starts to melt because of the million people that show up daily. This is a great resort to start and fall in love with skiing. ... Full Review

I've been going to Sunday River since I was 3 1/2, I'm 23 now. I learned everything I know about skiing at this resort. I remember having the time of my life in ski school when I was little, and swimming at the indoor pool with friends and family on our vacations. As I grew up, I grew with the mountain and there was always new terrain for me to try out and explore. I skied my first double black diamond (Norther Exposure) on the mountain when I was about 10 or 11. When I got older, about 15, I was in high school and I remember my first time ever skiing down White Heat. I was so nervous, but so excited at the same time. I made it down the whole way without falling or overthinking, I just went for it, and I was so excited we went to the pro shop and I bought myself a long sleeve shirt with white heat on it so I could brag about it at school. If you're ever thinking of going to this resort, do it. I want to keep my family ski trip a tradition when I have a family of my own one day because I know how worth it it'll be and the memories my kids could make here one day. Sunday River holds a special place in my heart (if you couldn't already tell) but I can't say enough good about the terrain they offer, their ski school programs, and the experiences they offer....

Main lift (Lift 1 on Barker Mountain) breaks down constantly. It even stranded people (including me) on it for 52 minutes. It had broken down 5 times in 6 days. I have never seen another high-speed lift that is that slow, never mind breaks down all the time. They should be ashamed that they put people on that machine.... Full Review

Sunday River use to be the gem of New England. Now it has become over crowded, causing long lift lines, narrow trails and icy conditions. ... Full Review

Skied 12/30/19 , 12/31 - 5-6” of snow each day. Made for tough skiing. Visibility very poor. But, on Jan 1 groomers smoothed out all those unwelcome bumps and conditions were great!... Full Review

The wind was strong an lifts were limited which is completely reasonable; however, they had only 2 lifts open with no services at the only non bunny hill lift. We had to leave and drive to another base lodge for food and drink. They simply gave their staff the day off and said screw the customers. They won't even discuss a refund. Go to the Loaf...

I really loved my time at Sunday River. I took a beginner lesson and the instructors were very friendly and I learned very quickly. The skiing and snowboarding areas can get a bit crowded. When you are on the lift, the views are breathtaking. Overall, I would definitely go again and I recommend you should too.... Full Review
