2009/10 improvements at Sunday River

Mon 24 August 09

There's no major new replacement of lifts or additional snowmaking, but just over $2million is being spent overhauling their lifts and snowmaking

Sunday River’s remaining capital budget for 2009-2010 continues to invest in the resort’s lift and snowmaking systems with the additions of new drives and low voltage replacements for the White Cap and Spruce Peak lifts; new lift houses for the magic carpet area, a new load ramp for the White Cap lift, new disconnects, valves and piping for the Bark Pump House, a new drying tower for the Snowflake Factory, as well as valve and valve house upgrades and new snowmaking hose. Total investment for land, equipment and building upgrades is $2.1 million.

The most significant of this year’s capital expenditures is $1.4 million on new custom-designed Boyne Beds to each room of Sunday River’s two Grand Resort Hotels. Boyne Beds feature a 13.5 inch coil-on-coil mattress; all-white bedding package including 300 thread count sheets, a Primaloft comforter and fresh white duvet covers, as well as a collection of goose down sleeping pillows and Euro shams. As well, each room is outfitted with new 42-inch flat screen televisions.

In 2008, Sunday River introduced $14.2 million in capital improvements including New England’s only Chondola lift, night skiing/riding and 75 Boyne-developed Low-Energy fan guns designed for high-efficiency snowmaking.

Sunday River celebrates its 50th Birthday with one of the biggest parties guests have ever seen on December 19, 2009. Throughout the season, visitors to Sunday River can expect season-long pass and lift ticket benefits, events, activities and special promotions.
