Killington will be getting some company this week.
Sunday River announced on Sunday that it plans to open on Tuesday morning with more than 50 acres of terrain, top-to-bottom, serviced by the Jordan 8 chairlift. The Maine resort will join Killington as the only two resorts open for skiing and riding in New England.
Sunday River expects to open with skiing at Jordan Bowl for New England Pass holders, Ikon Pass holders, and ticket packs with daily operations. Daily lift tickets will be available beginning Wednesday.
Over the summer, the resort made significant enhancements to its existing snowmaking infrastructure to triple the water capacity in the Jordan Bowl. This upgrade included the installation of nearly two miles of 20-inch snowmaking pipe, linking the North Peak Booster Pump House to the summit of the Jordan Bowl. This will triple snowmaking capacity in the area, allowing for all snow guns in the Jordan Bowl to operate simultaneously.
