The motto at Sunday River is ‘find your happy place…’ – Ski Adaptable are confident we can help your students find their ‘happy place’ at Sunday River on an unforgettable school ski trip experience.  The best snow-making in the world along with excellent annual snowfall means lots of powder; a superb ski school, slopes and customer service and activites mean happy students; a great all-encompassing resort with slick service mean your life as group leader is made easier.  The skiing, après ski and accommodation options are pretty amazing too!  Sunday River is arguably the perfect school ski trip resort.


The Skiing…

Sunday River consists of eight interconnected mountain peaks, each offering its own unique challenges and features.  From challenging double black diamond runs on White Cap peak, long crusers on Aurora and Oz peaks and great intermediate skiing on Jordan Bowl.  As an added bonus, all peaks are connected.  South Ridge is the home of ‘Perfect Turn’ ski school which is located directly outside of the ski rental shop.  This is an excellent place for beginners to find their feet on the snow with a wide range of reasonably soft and simple slopes that will help build confidence with excellent progression opportunities rising up the peak.  Any experienced dare-devils in your group should head for White Cap which is home to some of the resorts most difficult runs including the infamous White Heat run which is one of the longest, steepest runs in the East.  Add to this some amazing, tree-lined cruisers for all ability of skier in your group, such as the signature ‘Dream Maker’ and ‘Lazy River’, with superb views across the mountains ahead for miles.  A great aspect about Sunday River is that even beginners should be able to make their way atop the mountains after a few days on one of the easier, lengthy green circle runs that runs top to bottom of the resort, with most runs ending up at South Ridge Base Camp.  Don’t forget to stop off Eddy the Yeti’s hut on the way down and look out for the resort mascot!  Miles of tree-lined skiing for all abilities and lots of powder – welcome to your happy place!

The Snowfall…

Sunday River boasts an impressive 424cm of average annual snowfall, enough to ensure snow-covered slopes all season long.  However, Sunday River also boasts the most powerful and technically advanced snow-making system in the world, which stems from their very own onsite ‘Snow-flake factory’ and ends up turning out snow from October through April from almost 2000 snow cannons cover 95% of the slopes.  This means lots of powder, some of the most snow-sure skiing in the world and a ski season that is the first to open in East Coast USA (early November) and closes before the snow is gone.  Think lots of powder days and incredible conditions in which to learn to ski and we are sure you get the idea – perfect skiing season long!

Off the Slopes…

The setup is modern and easy to manage at Sunday River both on and off the slopes.  Après ski activities are superb in all of the accommodation offerings themselves, from the Snow Cap Inn which boasts its own ice rink, the adjacent Youth Lodge with a huge games and recreation area and the Grand Summit and Jordan Hotels which have beautiful indoor and outdoor swimming pools that back onto the ski slopes and boast further Jacuzzis, perfect after a day on the slopes.  However, there is plenty to do away from the accommodation including snow tubing on a specially constructed run, snow shoeing with a guide and ended by a camp fire complete with hot chocolate; there is even a zipline!  Nearby quaint Bethel town offers a cinema too, and the town is worth a visit on its own.  The resort also organise a disco exclusively for all British groups on peak dates for your students to party into the night.
