I have been skiing at Sunday River since 1970, and have seen it grow into the resort it is today. I can tell you without a doubt, it is the BEST resort in the eastern US. There is a trail there for everyone, the beginner to the person who needs a challenge every time they go down the slope. Two... More

Our family skis every year during spring break. However, for the past few years we have not been. We usually go out West but this year decided to head to Maine. They have many peaks (8 plus a little one unnamed.) They have many different ski trails ranging from green-double black. Our family has a husband and wife, 13, and... More

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, so while there were plenty of skiers, we avoided any line-ups at rentals. The conditions were a little rough that day, but improved considerably the next morning after a night of grooming. Our seven year old was in ski school, which is well organized with great instructors and small class sizes. I was very... More

I don't ski but my significant other does. I stayed in the Lodge and worked while he played. I do wish it had been a bit more comfortable and less cool.

I love Sunday River, but hate the rental process. Two weeks ago it took 65 minutes to rent equipment. They installed a new piece of software and were quite apologetic, so I let it pass. Yesterday, it took 47 minutes to rent. There were 3 cash registers, where they had room for 5. 2 of the 3 were working intermittently.... More

Took my daughter for a day visit to Sunday River. She took a lesson in the morning and ski'd the rest of the day. All the staff were helpful in getting her the right equipment, lift tickets to make it an enjoyable day. We had breakfast in the lodge and I was able to sit and watch the mountain and... More

Skied just one day while on my way to another part of Maine, but had a wonderful experience. The resort has a variety of terrain for all levels of skiing. Very family oriented and not too crowded.

This is a great ski resort. Tons of terrain. Lots of challenging hills. Not crowded. Hard to get to from Ontario and Western New York but worth the drive. For skiing it is on par with the best the East has to offer. Accommodations and amenities are lacking but if you like to ski it is a great place.

We've been at Sunday River about three times, and this place never seems to disappoint me. The amount of snow is superb, the lift lines are fast, and the variety of terrain is just amazing. We have a small children, and Sunday River offers something for every member of the family. But if you're also a serious skier, these resorts... More
