Just got back from our school vacation week ski trip. We love Sunday River. My daughter learned to ski at Sunday River when she was 4 and now at age 10, she was skiing black diamond trails. The ski instructors and staff are warm, friendly and helpful. The food and drink at the lodge is really good. If you like... More

Sunday River is HUGE. We skied for 3 days and hardly repeated a run. There is a great variety of terrain and the fastest chairlifts I've ever seen. Some great food options as well.

Sunday River is a great mountain with great variety and gets more snow that mountains in New Hampshire but after all the snow we have received and they boasted about, I would have expected a better job spreading the snow on the trails after the wind storm they had the night before.

Large variety of terrain; happily gave rain checks when lifts were on wind hold during President's Week. Workers very friendly. Web site could use update, lacks basic information like base and peak temperatures and wind speed. Really just has fluff copy.

This was our first visit to Sunday River and we were pleasantly surprised. There's eight peaks all of which are very different. There's lots of varied terrain with beginner trails all the way up to some challenging doubles and the glade skiing is superb. We spent 6 days skiing and never ran out of new trails to ski. Only issue... More

A Great place. We went in the fall for the color and the ski lift ride. So colorful this time of year. We have friends that have a condo there so we stayed for the weekend.

Sunday River has it all. Varied terrain, and the best snow making and grooming in the east. Family friendly with trails for every type of skier.

We skied two days and it was truly dangerously cold. We made the most of it and took lots of breaks. This was our first visit. Because of this we could not take advantage of the whole mountain. What we did ski was terrific (minus the weather). All mountain staff were helpful. The kid programs were terrific and surpassed our... More

All ski levels are accommodated. This is a very well run operation. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Our friends are new to skiing and were treated so well by the instructors. It's expensive but the best places usually are.

Sunday River has variety of slopes, all inclusive "stay and ski" packages, and friendly instructors (sometimes they try to teach you from the scratch every day - better schedule sessions with the same instructor for 2-3 days).
