NEWRY, ME - Located in the Western Mahoosuc Mountains of Maine, Sunday River Resort is gearing up for one of its most visually stunning seasons with a Fall Foliage vacation package starting at $139 for lodging, breakfast and two scenic Chondola rides. Sunday River is a destination offering eight interconnected peaks covered in the most dependable snow in New England, two Grand Resort Hotels and is just minutes from downtown Bethel, Maine, which was voted by Yankee Magazine in 2010 as the second best area out of 25 New England towns to take in the colors of fall.
Valued with a 10 percent discount, this special package provides a mountain setting surrounded by the colors of fall as well as the best seat in the house to take it all in — a ride on Sunday River’s Chondola. Sunday River’s scenic Chondola rides were noted as a great option for leaf peepers in the October 2010 issue of Down East Magazine which explained that “Sunday River’s Chondola (a lift with both gondolas and open chairs) totes leaf peepers to the top of North Peak, where the views of the White Mountains’ Mahoosuc Range and the Androscoggin River Valley are spectacular.”
Day lift tickets are available to ride Sunday River’s Chondola which is open Fridays through Sundays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. through Columbus Day. Tickets are $12 for ages 13 and older; $8 for ages 6 through 12, and ages 5 and under ride for free.
Chondola rides will also be available during Sunday River’s annual Fall Festival Weekend, October 8-9, 2011, for guests looking for a higher vantage point to scope out fall foliage as well as the action surrounding the North American Wife Carrying Championship taking place that Saturday!
