“Great Ski Getaway”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Friendly people that want to make you smile. Skiing was fantastic, although it can be pricey for a family of 5. Going online and purchasing your lift tickets csn save you some great money.

“Wonderful week of skiing!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We just returned from a week of skiing at Sunday River. The staff was awesome. Each of the 3 of us split and took a group lesson. The instructors were fantastic. Steve from Freeport was my instructor and the man has the patience of a saint. Wish I lived closer, I would take more lessons! My son ripped his ski jacket while he was taking a class and they allowed him to chose a brand new one from the ski shop. This was without me complaining or asking...they just offered. To me, that is awesome customer service. The food is good we ate at the Foggy Goggle, the cafe, the creperie and Sliders (LOVED Slider's menu). I would agree with some of the other reviewers in that the snowboarders can be real inconsiderate especially on family trails when they come flying by and especially at night when they come out in droves. Also, I would agree with the reviewer...Dreammaker and even Lollapolluza should be marked Intermediate at least at the beginning. That's more challenging terrain and I witnessed beginners on both have difficulty.

“You can't beat the view!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We had a large group that visited Sunday River during February vacation including kids and adults. The skiing is excellant but the views are top-knotch! We did not find the fellow skiiers/snowboarders to be friendly or courteous at all. The staff and lift attendants were great and the conditions were perfect. If I had to make one recommendation The Dreamaker trail should be marked intermediate and not beginner.

“Lots of Variety, Good Trail Maintenance”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

A great place to ski. We enjoyed the variety of trails, going from one end of the resort to the other and back before settling on runs that we preferred. Even on a holiday week, and when lifts were on hold because of wind, we rarely had to wait very long in lift lines. The snow coverage was excellent, and they obviously manage what they have with care. Areas for improvement - the signage is poor, with many intersections unmarked and others with confusing signs. Also, many of the lifts are aging, and although a slow old lift is nice on a sunny warm day, it is unpleasant when it's cold and windy and you need to keep the blood flowing.
