Sunday River is installing a chondula from South Ridge to North Peak. Yeah, I know, a what? It’s a chairlift with occasional gondola cabins. According to Rivah wags, this is the first stage of repositioning the resort for four-season use (hiking, walking, biking…). Access will be year round.
It’s but one part of the $14 million upgrade. Also announced is the cutting of new trails on North Peak. And this is the first step toward providing night-skiing on North Peak. What resort spokespeople are referring to as 12-hour skiing could be available as early as next season, pending local approvals.
After years of benign neglect under ASC ownership, The Rivah is back. We luv ya Boyne.
