Scenic Lift Rides:

Before summer started, we talked about various mountains offering lift rides throughout the off-season. Sunday River has picked it up again with rides up/down the Chondola to North Peak. 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.

Forecast For This Winter:

Here at Mainely Skiing, we want to make you aware of the upcoming conditions for this winter. We found this youtube video to be excellent for throughly explaining the weather for this coming winter. Fingers crossed it will be better than last year!


As it stands now, it looks like this weekend should be decent for those last minute summer activities/cleaning.
