NEWRY, Maine — Skiers and riders were greeted with their first true snow day of the season at Sunday River. Snow continues to accumulate, and in some spots on the mountain, has grown to over eight inches since the storm started. Skiing and riding is on 22 trails and over 100 acres today with more terrain expected to open thanks to Mother Nature and nonstop snowmaking over the course of the past two weeks.

“This storm is perfect timing,” said Jim Costello, Director of Marketing and Sales for Sunday River. “It’s been an incredible early season so far thanks to the recent improvements we made to our snowmaking technology. The snow that we’re getting now just sweetens the experience that much more.” Snow is expected to last into the evening. Tomorrow’s forecast calls more a chance of more snow followed by perfect snowmaking temperatures in the evening.

For Thanksgiving weekend, Sunday River is preparing a fine feast of activities including Family Trivia Night on Friday, the TBD Open Rail Jam event on Saturday, a STEEZIN TV Party premiere featuring live music from Surf Below Zero on Saturday night, and our Annual Demo Days taking place from 8-12 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
