Sunday River

Sunday River offers some of Maine’s most dependable snow, and the 2013-2014 season is no different. This year, Sunday River installs 224 new Impulse snowguns on four major trails; Lollapalooza, Rogue Angel, Risky Business, and the new T72 terrain park. At 15 acres, T72 is Sunday River’s largest terrain park yet, with an 18-foot superpipe and the resort’s largest jump line. Located on the North Peak between 3D Trails and Dream Maker, T72 was developed through a partnership with Snow Park Technologies – course designers for the Winter X Games.

Sugarloaf

A ten-year plan that began in 2007, The Sugarloaf 2020 project includes expanded terrain, more summer activities, village expansions and brand new lifts. The 2013 improvements include a 30-person outdoor hot tub at Sugarloaf Mountain Hotel, continued glad cutting on Burnt Mountain, widened trail for ski racing, and 200 new low energy snowguns.
