We wanted an extended ski trip over the holiday break, but not enough time to fly somewhere. We also wanted to avoid the holiday crowds of VT. Sunday River had excellent skiing, friendly service, plenty of ski in/ski out condos, fireworks at night, freshly groomed night skiing, at least 5 terrain parks, uncrowded runs, and a diverse and challenging mountain. If you can't live without a high end base lodge like Stratton or The Canyons, this is not the place for you. However, the dated base lodges provided plenty of food, drink, pro shops, rentals, lessons, and services. They also have outside fire pits and sell smores packages for toasting. Base hotels and condo complexes have outside swimming pools, always a hit in the middle of winter surrounded by snow. It was a great experience, worth the trip!
