Fall Is Here:

As Summer pretty much came to a close last weekend as the kids went back to school. Fall is in the air and we all know what that means – Ski season will be here soon! The leaves start to change, that crisp smell is in the air and pumpkin spice everything. However you enjoy the fall, just know that first snowfall is coming fast!

Merrill Hill

Merrill Hill, Sunday River’s latest project is really going great! An insert from their website “The Merrill Hill project continues to move forward. If you’ve been around the resort, there is a noticeable change. With several trails, roads, and lift lines cut, we’re excited to move into the lift- and snowmaking-building phase for the Sunday River Real Estate-exclusive development. During this time, some areas of the mountain are closed to all pedestrian traffic Monday through Friday. Please be aware of all signage around North Peak and Merrill Hill. You may need to choose alternative routes, or consider other places to explore as the area is filled with great hikes and walks.” Sunday River’s TikTok posted a video of the lift equipment from Doppelmayr sitting in a near by parking lot. Looks exciting! Check it out by clicking the link below.

Scenic Lift Rides:

Catch a ride up Sunday River’s Chondola to North Peak before it is too late. The Chondola is dog, kid, and grandparent-friendly, so you’ll want to pack up your whole family for this scenic adventure. Lift rides are available from 10AM-4PM on Saturdays and Sundays from early July to mid-October. You can buy tickets online in advance, but will need to pick up your tickets upon arrival. You can also purchase tickets on-site at South Ridge Lodge. Lift tickets will be issued until 3:30PM or until capacity is reached. If you plan to ride the lift back to the bottom, please load before 4PM. For more information, visit the link below.
