Sunday River in Newry Maine invested heavily in early season snow making and it shows. With 40 trails and 200 acres of terrain open the conditions on mountain were extremely good for the first week in December. Even though there were plenty of patroons out for the early season, the lift crews moved them around. Except for a line at the Barker Mountain Express, lift lines were non existent. Note: there was a FIS Race going on on Barker which contributed to the line.
The mountain crew did an exceptional job piling the snow on Dream Maker which parallels the newly opened T 72 terrain park.
Speaking of T-72, or Trail 72, the park enthusiasts were out in force Saturday for the opening. There was plenty of jumps and other park features.
Early season is great! The conditions were good, and crowds were small . Use this as a chance to get out and ease bad into the sport.
