Spanning three miles, Sunday River is spread across 870 accessible acres that spreads across eight interconnected peaks: White Cap, Locke Mountain, Barker Mountain, Spruce Peak, North Peak, South Ridge, Aurora Peak and Oz. This is a year-round ski resort with tree skiing and terrain parks for freestylers in the winter, and golfing and water sports in the summer.
Portland International Jetport in Portland, Maine, is a quick 90-minute drive from the ski resort. It’s about a three-hour drive from Boston’s Logan International Airport. You can rent a car and drive yourself, or pay for a shuttle from the airport.
The hardest terrain is going to be on White Cap, with White Heat being an expert run. North Peak is geared towards beginners and families. For the best snow and the fewest people, head to the resort in March or April.
There are plenty of lodging on the mountain. For discount Sunday River lift tickets, buy them online or at any base or resort lodging. The SnowSports school offers both adult and children ski and snowboard lessons. Private and group lessons are available. During select times of the year, the resort offers Kids Ski Free weeks.
