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!

SR is a great ski mountain with so many trails and lifts. Unfortunately, ski tickets are getting so expensive... Ski passes too!! There are decent ski pass deals if you are young or "old," however, for us working middle-agers, we are out of luck.

Sunday River is a lot of fun when there is snow and the winds are mild. Just about any kind of terrain you can find in the east is there. Try to find a deal to keep cost down.

The most expensive ski area we were in on our 6 resort trip. No discounts on offer at any time so it was $340 for a family of 4. This was the big one on my bucket list of New England ski resorts so perhaps I had expected too much. It was good but not great, even although weather and... More

One of the premier ski resorts in the Northeast for sure. I usually only get here once or twice per season, but it's a treat. Certainly not a cheap day, and it takes a couple hrs to get there, but the quality of the trails, lifts and the facility as a whole is great.

If you are a ski enthusiast, this is the best place to visit in the Northeast! I have skied many New England destinations and this by far is my favorite and most sought after winter plans location. What I feel is the best here is the layout of the mountain and the ease in which to traverse across from White... More

We just got back from our first Dad and boys 11 and 9, snowboard trip. It was my first time here and i was completely blown away at the terrain and the variety of runs from some really nice green cruisers to black tree runs. Something for everyone. I consider myself to be an expert boarder and my boys are... More
