Four-season resort will celebrate opening for summer with table-top yard sale

Newry, ME (May 23, 2012)-As part of its summer opening weekend, Sunday River Resort will be hosting Western Maine’s Largest Yard Sale in the South Ridge Base Area on Saturday, June 30, 2012, the day after the resort officially opens its doors for summer activities.

“All skiers love a good yard sale,” Caroline Ochtera, Marketing & Events Manager at Sunday River, says, referring to the good-natured term used when skiers fall and spread their equipment along the trail. “It only makes sense that we would take that literally and open our doors to people selling their wares and create Western Maine’s Largest Yard Sale.”

The all-day yard sale will include 50 spots-approximately 10 feet by 20 feet-in the parking lot adjacent to South Ridge, Sunday River’s main base lodge. Anyone interested in participating in the yard sale can register for a space for $10. Everyone is invited to wander the yard sale free of charge to locate treasures, antiques, or simply interesting trinkets.

Friday, June 29, marks opening day for Sunday River’s summer activities and the opening day for the mountain bike park. Throughout the weekend, the resort will be offering zipline tours and twin zips, geocache adventures, scenic lift rides, wildlife tours, and much more. Lodging packages that weekend start at $49 per person, including a day of lift-serviced mountain biking.
