A Fantastic Destination for your school ski trips USA…

A few years ago Troy, who runs the school ski programme for Boyne resorts, challenged us to see what Sunday River had to offer. What we found was a fabulous resort with endless possibilities and people with a real desire to accommodate all the requirements of a school ski trips USA… a good start!

What struck us straight away about staying in Sunday River was just how flexible the accommodation options were. There are two large Grand Summit hotels, one of which we stayed in and had one of the most memorable breakfasts ever, The Snow Cap Inn and The Snow Cap Youth Lodge.

It was the Inn and the Lodge that made sense straight away, the Inn is one of those places that gives you a warm feeling as soon as you walk in, which was supplemented by the freshly baked afternoon cookies. The layout is sympathetic to groups with central fireside lounge areas governing the corridor space. The Snow Cap Lodge right next door is fantastic value and has New England boarding school appeal. There is a large dining area and an equally large lounge with separate seating areas for groups with large screen TV’s and video games to keep them happy. The big plus factor here is also the bunk house rooming for schools looking for single bed accommodation without having to pay the earth.

When you see the Sunday River skiing laid out over eight peaks you just have to think wow! There are acres and acres of trails and endless possibilities for your day. What struck us was the lift system and the way it whisked us with efficient ease to any point of the mountain and despite how many skiers were on the hill there never seemed to be a queue. We were there with a group of school teachers who were intermediate skiers and they had an absolute ball on trails that started at the top of the mountain and seemingly went on forever. So much so that lunch was just a snack and a coffee because we didn’t want to take up too much precious skiing time.

 

School Ski Trips USA: The Other Stuff…

Sunday River has lots of great entertainment opportunities to keep your students happy in the evenings. If you are staying at either of the Snow Cap properties you are just a short walk from the outdoor skating rink and the Tubing Hill. In fact there is a great vantage point outside the clubhouse standing by a warm fire pit enjoying a hot chocolate or even something a little stronger…
