Sunday River, located in Newry, ME, will add 75 acres of skiable terrain to the resort for the 2013/2014 season, bringing its total to 820 acres. This makes it the second largest resort in New England behind its Maine neighbor Sugarloaf. Located on the resort’s North Peak, T72 will be a 15-acre terrain park designed with the help of hometown hero Simon Dumont and Snow Park Technologies. The resort will also add 60 acres of gladed terrain, spread out over five trails.

Press Release, Newry, ME, August 22, 2013:

For those skiers and snowboards who like to venture off trail and into the woods, drop into a superpipe, hit some rails or even jumps, Sunday River Resort is excited to announce the addition of T72, a 15-acre terrain park trail, and five new gladed areas for the 2013/14 winter season.

This new terrain adds up to 75 acres for a total of 820 acres of skiable terrain at the resort. These additions make Sunday River the second largest resort in New England behind sister resort, Sugarloaf (1,056 acres), also located in Maine.

More information about Sunday River’s new terrain is as follows:

T72: Located on North Peak between Sunday River’s 3D and Dream Maker trails, T72 is a 15-acre terrain park trail designed with the help of Snow Park Technologies and Olympic hopeful, Simon Dumont. T72 will include a jump line, rail features, and superpipe, and is serviced by two lifts.

Hardball (extension): This double black diamond glade on Sunday River’s White Cap peak, located between the Shockwave and White Heat trails, grows from 3.2 acres to 13.4 acres thanks to extensive tree work.

Chutzpah (extension): Another double black diamond glade on White Cap, Chutzpah follows Hardball’s lead and grows from 5.7 acres to 29.4 acres. In addition to plenty more elbow room, skiers and snowboarders will also enjoy a second entrance off of the Obsession trail.

North Woods: Found between Sunday River’s 3D and North Exposure trails, North Woods is a new double black diamond glade that extends for a total of 6.1 acres.

Super Nova: For any skier or snowboarder who has ever eyed the Aurora liftline from the Aurora Peak Quad, it’s now 4.2 acres of gladed double black diamond terrain thanks to a new entry off of the Airglow trail and exit into the Celestial glade.

Poppy Fields: Follow the Kansas trail (Sunday River’s version of the Yellow Brick Road) past the Emerald City trail and drop into this new 15.8 acre double black diamond glade which ‘pops’ skiers and snowboarders back out onto the Cyclone trail.
