WHY: Everything’s nice at Sunday River. At this enormous mountain, huge investments in snowmaking (including more than $1 million just this season) and impeccable grooming pay off. But there’s an edge. It’s open boundary-to-boundary, and it’s one of only a handful of Eastern resorts to have an official uphill-travel pol- icy. And if the skiing’s feeling too softcore, head to White Cap to pound your legs and lungs.
WHAT: Hit Last Tango—a long glade run that holds steeps, drops, and bumps.
WHERE: To stuff as much as possible into a weekend, grab nachos at the Foggy Goggle and then go night skiing. Sunday River re-grooms a ton of terrain on weekends and holidays.
