Sunday River Resort Overview

With 870 acres of skiable terrain spread across 8 peaks, Sunday River rounds out the four largest resorts east of the Rockies (a bit larger than Aspen Mountain). More than half of this expansive acreage is covered by a fleet of 2,000+ snow guns, creating some of the most reliable conditions in the Northeast. Beginners can cut their teeth on gentle, perfectly groomed slopes while more advanced riders can chase the adrenaline of the steeps, natural terrain and trees. Each peak offers great terrain variety, and getting around is a breeze.


The resort features three base areas — South Ridge, Barker Mountain and White Cap. Though the resort lacks a true "village" feel, all of the amenities you'd expect (lodging, food, shops & rentals) are spread amongst these areas. Nearby Bethel (5-10 minutes drive) has consistently held a top ranking for a ski town in America by USA Today. The mountain is ~1.5 hours driving from Portland and 3 hours from Boston — a car is essential. Make sure to pack layers, being so far north means more reliable snow, but comes with chillier conditions than other well-known New England resorts. Sunday River is a Boyne resort, part of the New England Pass and the Ikon Pass offers 5 or 7 days.
