Now you can put that Mega Pass to good use! Today, Maine’s Sunday River Ski Resort opened its slopes up to eager folks waiting to take advantage of the three inches of natural snow that fell yesterday (plus the oodles of man-made stuff of course). Up until a couple hours ago, Sunday River was open for free, letting people enjoy what was probably their first runs of the season. However, it should be known that no beginner runs are open at this time.

Here’s Sunday River General Manager Dana Bullen: “Cold temperatures and advanced snowmaking technologies including tower guns and fan guns helped us open. Opening ahead of the pack is a great treat to offer skiers and riders across New England and we’re proud to be able to stake this claim for a third year in a row.” Thanks for being so johnny-on-the-spot year after year guys!
