Santa Visits Sunday River
Every Winterfest, Santa visits the South Ridge Lodge. He arrives with all the bells and whistles—literally. Kids of all ages can come to tell Santa whether they have been nice or naughty, their Christmas wishes, and walk away with something from the North Pole. (South Ridge Lodge | 4-5PM)
Night Skiing Kick-Off
Later, enjoy the season's kick-off to Night Skiing with us on South Ridge and North Peak. We keep the South Ridge Express and Chondola turn so you can enjoy more skiing under the lights. Tickets for night skiing are only $6.
(South Ridge and North Peak | 4-8PM)
POSTPONED TO DEC. 28 DUE TO WEATHER: Torchlight Parade & Fireworks
Just like lighting candles on a cake, Sunday River will light its trails up with torches—sixty to be exact. Come to South Ridge to view some of Sunday River's finest skiers and riders whisk down to South Ridge with large lit torches. The icing on the cake? An amazing fireworks show to follow. But, just wait, the party is just getting started...(South Ridge | 8:15PM)
Turn up the volume and the good times at the Foggy Goggle. Live entertainment and theme for this year's party will be announced soon! The River Fund will also be collecting donations and selling cash-only raffle tickets for some great prize packs. Don't worry, we didn't forget about the cake! We'll be passing out slices starting at 10PM until it's gone, and then getting ready to whack the birthday pinata at 10:30PM. (Foggy Goggle | 9PM-12:30 AM)
