Sunday River Opens First In Maine

Bethel, ME, Nov. 8--Sunday morning, Sunday River Ski Resort started the lifts up for the 1999-2000 season. An eager crowd of skiers rode up the Locke Mountain triple chair to carve turns down the expert T2 trail.

Following a cold weather snap last week, Sunday River fired up its snowmaking system of 1,500 snowguns on Thursday and kept the snow blowing all weekend. The T2 expert trail on Locke Mountain, offered skiers an expert run from the top of Locke Mountain down to the mid-station, where they had to download to the bottom. But, that's still pretty good for early November, and as snowmaking continues more trails should be open by next weekend.

"We're proud to be the first resort in Maine to open the ski and snowboard season once again," said Chip Seamans, marketing director. "Thanks to the best snowmakers and snowmaking system in New England, Sunday River is off to an early start for what looks to be another great season."

Cold temperatures also allowed Killington Resort, VT, to reopen on Nov. 6 for the weekend. Killington had opened on Oct. 25, but then closed on Oct. 31 due to mild temperatures.

Sunday River's early season lift tickets cost $25 for adults 13 and over, $17 for juniors 12 and under.
