    Skiing Sunday River 2019-2020

    They have 3 lifts and 20 trails open today. Not so bad given the weather, but they did miss an opportunity to blow snow earlier when it was colder. Should be getting colder come Friday, and they are planning on opening Risky Business and the Spruce chair on Friday, Chondola Saturday.

    Trails of the day today were uppercut and Sluice, which you accessed by taking Three mile trail . Three mile was roped off at sluice, but it was tacked up pretty well, anyways.

    Some decent grooming going on and what they have isn't too bad, though Right Stuff and Cascades were used hard.
    lovin life,

    Bob

    That shouldn't kill everything, not sure which day you are talking. If when Chondi is running, that could be susceptible, but the balance of current lifts should be ok.

    Thursday could be an issue for Barker but if the winds are actually North, should be fine.

    Generally speaking, they handle wind poorly, IMO.

    Was there today. Both black trails had race setups. T2 closed for them and the other was half open. Trails, while tiring out my legs as this was day 5 in a row, were not in great shape but okay. Carvable anyway. Upper cut had some skiable bumps but that trail is only 150 feet long. Other ungroomed was not exactly skiable. No real lift lines unlike the shitty gondola at Loon. PIA with tele gear. Really any gear having to take it off and on.

    Welcome to SR, racing comes first. This year, it is exacerbated because of the reduced water flow in the Snowmaking system to date. My wife commented this past weekend as to whether there were more racers/teams than in the past. I said no, it's just they have half the terrain open they would normally have in previous years with similar weather. Really need those new pumps online this weekend!!

    I was surprised that the race team from West Mtn was there practicing from queensbury NY. Long haul to hit gates.
