Sunday River

REVIEWS

By Gina Sanchez

Sunday River, located near Bethel, Maine, has a lot to offer the student with a limited budget, its six mountain peaks, eleven chair-lifts, and seventy trails offer enough variety to more than fill a weekend ski trip. But there is much more to do than just ski. The resort has many attractions, including a spectacular heated pool. It is quite a novelty to pack a bathing suit for a ski trip. There is also a sauna. For night life, there are a number of clubs located near most of the condominiums and the ski dorms. The condominiums are extremely nice and comfortable, as well as fairly priced. Yet, an option for students is the ski dorm. Ski dorms cost $20 per person per night on weekdays and $30 on weekends. This is always a cost-effective option.

The slopes themselves are excellent. Sunday River makes a lot of snow, so the only time a skier will encounter icy trails is maybe the first ten or so feet of a black diamond or double black diamond slope. On a windy day, the snow on top of the mountain gets blown off. The trails are always very well covered past that. For a little excitement, many of the trails are only half groomed, leaving moguls for the adventurous skier. White Heat, the double black diamond trail, is a must ski. For the experienced skier. Sunday River also offers some very nice green slopes to either warm yourself or relax on. For the beginning skier, Sunday River has a very experienced staff of teachers available for ski lessons. On the whole, Sunday River is a prime vacation spot for anybody who wants to ski.
