Snow storm pounds Sunday River

If Mother Nature’s version of Groundhog Day means dropping over a foot of new snow on Sunday River Ski Resort, then skiers and snowboarders will be very happy regardless of if a little well known varmint sees his shadow.

“Ski conditions are the best of the season,” says Dana Bullen, Resort President for Sunday River. “Glades are opening left and right, the snow continues to fall, and you can see from the many smiles on our guests’ faces that they definitely their Happy Place today.”

To date, Sunday River has received 82 inches of natural snow, which is seven inches more than the resort had at this same time last year. The resort, also known for its snowmaking capabilities, has helped Mother Nature along with 74 days of snowmaking since opening back in mid-October.


Historically, February is Sunday River’s snowiest month averaging over four feet of natural snowfall. With twelve inches covered and another big storm forecasted for Saturday, the resort is confident it will reach the four foot mark with ease.

“We’re in the snow business,” says Bullen. “And when it snows as hard as it is right now, it’s always good for business.”
