This is how we do it.

One of the more popular questions around Sunday River is regarding how we do our snow reporting. Here, we hope to shed some light on how Team Snow completes the Sunday River snow report to provide you with the most accurate snapshot of what is going on across the resort’s eight peaks.



Every morning, the snow reporter gets to the mountain between two and two-and-a-half hours before the lifts open. On “snow event” days, the snow reporter will be in the office as early as three hours… Continue

Some like it hot...

Well if you haven't noticed recently it has been a bit, um, frosty outside. Granted cold is great for snow, snow sports, snowmaking, and snowpeople, it can sometimes take away from our ski day. To prevent such further interruption of the enjoyment of skiing and riding I have done some research and compiled a list of ways to, and ways not to, keep warm.



1. Dress in layers- I know that is kind of simple and straightforward but it can go a long way in insuring your comfort, and ultimate… Continue

'Twas The Night Before Christmas Redux

‘Twas the day before Christmas and all ‘round the River

The snowguns were blazing, the best snow they deliver.

Each trail being covered with precision and care,

With billions of snowflakes being tossed through the air.



All nestled in my office I felt a sense of dread,

With the snow report due I was going brain dead.

I had writers block, and creativity I lack,

Then in busted Santa, with many gifts in his sack!



“I hear you need help, and I can… Continue

50 fun facts about Sunday River Part 1

1. Sunday River is not an active volcano

3. The trail T2 is so named because the t-bar lift named T2 got you to the top of Locke… Continue

A look behind the curtain: Snowplan

A lot of people ask me, "Jarod, how hard is it to be so good looking?" Ok, maybe I don't get asked that a lot, but what I do get asked is how does the mountain decide where to make snow, and what will open next. The simple answer is that the mountain doesn't, it is a mountain, a big hunk of risen earth. There are a group of people who make this decision, and the meet at what is known as, "Snowplan."



There are many mysteries surrounding snowplan, where it is, when it is, who goes,… Continue

A Snow Reporter Thanksgiving!

That's right boys and girls, its time once again for another installment of the Snow Reporter's blog! I look at Thanksgiving as being the true start to the heart of ski season, granted we have been skiing and riding for over a month now, but still this is where things really start to pick up. Before things really start to pick up, and trust me they will in a quick way, I just wanted to reflect on some things that I am thankful for.

Who is this snowreporter fellow anyway?!

Welcome to the new community everyone, and more importantly welcome back to another exciting season at Sunday River. For those of you who don't know me, or maybe those of you who have forgotten, my name is Jarod and I am the snowreporter here at Sunday River. This is my second season here at the River and in short I pretty much have the coolest job on the mountain. It falls on me to get the information out about conditions, open trails, where snowmaking is, etc. Oh, and I occasionally can be… Continue
