Sunday River is a tremendous resort - you can ski all day and have a unique experience each run. The amenities are great, the food it above the norm for base lodge standard. My novice children (8 and 11) easily found skiing that was right for them. Great day on the slopes!

lots of variety and terrain for everyone. No long lines conditions were great. Would go back For sure. It is huge so make sure you have a plan for meeting family and friends if you get separated. We lost one of our group and it was hours before we found them the cell reception was not good

An indoor craft fair was being held and we explored the fair and enjoyed entertainment and some great burgers and beer on a sunny Autumn Sunday in Oct at this lovely resort.The foliage was lovely, and we enjoyed it immensely. We hope to return in the winter for the cold weather sports!

I have skied about a dozen seasons at Sunday River, so my review may be biased, but I believe it to be one of the best resorts in New England. Tons of great terrain variety, everyone from beginners to experts will be satisfied. Lots of great unmarked trails and stashes if you know where to look. Terrain park is pretty... More

Diverse terrain and good snow make it a great place to ski. We stayed at the Jordan hotel. That required a bit of poling to get to the lifts. Since it wasn't a peak week, the Jordan Mountain double was closed, making getting to the rest of the mountain difficult (lots of poling). Next time I would stay at the... More

Although having a rather jaundiced eye about New England skiing, I have to admit, I have a good time skiing at Sunday River. Been skiing there since the 80's and my husband since the 60's. We even bought a property in the near by village of Bethel. The reason is that in spite of whatever Mother Nature may throw in... More

Love this mountain because it is so big and thus never gets boring. Staff is super friendly and trails and lifts are well maintained. Good food at the lodge.

Went skiing here for two days in a row in April and I don't know if I skied the same trail twice....and if I did....I didn't know, I was perpetually lost on the mountain in a good way!
