Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 30, 2010 11:51 am

Newry, ME — From January 3 to January 7, 2011, Sunday River opens it doors to college students for a week of nonstop partying and deals. From eight mountain peaks filled with 18 inches of newly fallen powder, to headliners including Jah Cutta and Rahzel, it’d be wise for any student to put off their New Year resolutions until January 8.

Schedule of Events:
Starting Monday, January 3, Sunday River’s hottest après scene, the Foggy Goggle, hosts a different party every night of the week starting with an ’80s Dance Party featuring DJ Revolution and John Lee. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the cover charge is $10 for guests ages 18 years or older.

On Tuesday, show your love for Caribbean-inspired culture with Jah Cutta and Royal Hammer during Reggae Night, and on Wednesday, get ready for Hip Hop Night featuring DJ-JS1 and Rahzel. Doors open both nights at 8 p.m., cover charge is $15 on Tuesday and $20 on Wednesday for guests ages 18 years and older.

By Thursday, the Punanny Sound System will be dropping beats during a Rave Blacklight Party. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the cover charge is $10 for guests ages 18 years or older.

All shows during College Week take place at the Foggy Goggle in Sunday River’s South Ridge Base Lodge. Tickets go on sale January 1, 2011, or can be purchased in advance by calling (800) 543-2754.

Deals and More:
And for all those math majors, concerts are just a fraction of what’s happening during College Week. On Wednesday, January 5, Red Bull Mountain Ops is coming to the slopes with a unique on-mountain scavenger hunt.
