NEWRY, Maine — With accumulating snow underway and more significant snow in the forecast this week, Sunday River is moving forward the re-opening of Jordan Bowl, Aurora Peak, and White Cap to Friday, April 6. Until Friday, Sunday River will continue to offer skiing and riding for all abilities serviced by 9 lifts.
“We had planned to have those additional peaks open for Saturday, but with all this new snow we’re expecting fantastic conditions and a lot of early birds,” said Jim Costello, Vice President of Brand Management.
The Resort is not projected to close for the season until April 22 and will be offering between 100 and 120 trails this coming weekend. Current forecasts are calling for between 6 and 12 inches of snow in the region with the potential for more in the higher terrain, and the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch.
Easter Weekend ski and stay rates start at $65 per person per night and spring lift ticket rates are $39 midweek and $49 for the upcoming weekend. Weekend events include the Nickelodeon Kids Snow Festival with a concert by Hot Peas n’ Butter and appearances by Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants. The Russian American Kids Circus will be performing two shows at the Grand Summit Resort Hotel and more information is available at www.sundayriver.com or by calling (800) 543-2SKI.
