These used to be bookable through the resort but they have changed policy and aren't doing this any more. We heard from locals and other groups the resort has been purchased by... More

This was my first time to Sunday River and I was duly impressed! The facilities were beautiful and the views were gorgeous. Everyone was friendly and helpful from the ticket counter to ski patrol. My only two critiques is that the trails were a bit difficult for very basic beginners and ski patrol is in an inconvenient location for the... More

It would have been hard to have a bad day the day we skied at Sunday River. The weather was great and I had the extra treat one of my grown sons ski with my husband and I. Aside from the company, the groomed trails were excellent; the terrain and snow quality was the best I have ever skied (in... More

Skied a few times over the winter by far the best terrain, grooming and service of the larger New England ski resorts. Both the Summit and Jordan hotels have great ski/in out locations with amenities like outdoor heated pools and health clubs. Sunday River also seems to offer more discounts on food, stays, skiing than other larger resorts so plan... More

I have skied all over New England and haven't been to Sunday River in over 10 years. I was staying at the Grand Summit resort with the ski in and ski out. The first thing I noticed is how slow the chair lifts are. The area is expansive with trails for all but they really could use some more chair... More

Decided to try Sunday River for a week of skiing and was very happy. The trails were in great condition each day and there was lots of staff around to help and questions to. Lots of different terrain for all levels. Stayed at the Grand and all was great.

Several mountains with various levels. When groomed it's heaven. Crowded on lower mountains even during the week. Some of the best skiing in Northeast
