    SR the past several years has really pushed early season team training. A couple more years, assuming they do double their Snowmaking from the previous 8K gpm to 16K gpm, I am interested to see if they start early with a race pod and a public pod and then link the middle of them. I've heard that debated, but obviously they have to have the ability to do so first.

    I talked to a patroller today on the lift. The snowmaking is 100% back on line and low temps over the next few days should see some serious snow making. They are opening trails at a good clip right now. SouthPaw, goat trail (at least part of it), Wonderland upper cut and some others. Last Tango.

    Come get yourself some!

    Yes, they are doing well playing catch up. The trail count should go up steadily in the next week. Now if they can do a good job not having frequent lift mechanical breakdown, it would be really good

    Sunday River is pretty much rounding into form, though not completely open. 59 trails out of 135, 6 lifts out of 18 up and running. Some bump runs were covered enough to be enjoyable. (Agony, uppercut, goat path, Sluice, Locke Lift line, Wildfire). The groomers were buttery smooth this morning.

    I got in almost 4 hours of skiing before the rain came, as it always seems to this time of year. Just a temporary setback. The river will bounce back quick enough.
    lovin life,

    Yeah, good luck with that wish lol! THE pivotal lift (Barker) was down yet again on Sunday, WTF!!!
    Oh, and lets do mention the lack of dining options this weekend due to the racers taking over the Barker lodge, leaving just Southridge cause Whitecap, though open was strckly brown bag (no Shipyard, and no coffee shop. Oh yeah, part of the lodge was full of office furniture and other crap limiting movement and available seating. What about North Peak lodge you ask? Sorry, it was closed as were the bathrooms crying out loud. More examples of horrible management, place just can’t suck enough these days. ������
    FWIW, I didn’t spend any $$$ on the mountain this weekend, rather ate a late lunch at the Sunday River Brewery thank you!

    Yeah, feeling the same as you. Peak lodge is set to open the 19th. I'm a brown bagger or eat a late lunch. They have some decent burgers, but $9.00 plus tax? They aren't that good and will likely sell me exactly zero such burgers. If it was $6.00 a burger, they'd likely sell me one a week. I've been to a couple places that don't just stick it to you price wise (Mt Abrams, Ragged).

    Respectfully, Id be thankful for a $9.00 burger at a ski area. Thats dirt cheap.

    You think $9.00 is expensive for a burger? This is a ski resort, not Mcdonalds......If they were selling $6.00 burgers they would likely be losing money.
