Sunday River Ski Map

Sunday River Ski Area

There’s more to Maine than moose and lobsters, as anyone who has skied Sunday River can attest. In fact, Sunday River is one of the biggest ski resorts on the East Coast, with over 800 acres of skiable terrain, and 155 inches of natural snowfall every year. That combination makes Sunday River a tempting destination for anyone looking to get away to a ski resort for the weekend, or even longer. And Sunday River makes the most of that terrain with fourteen lifts, including a hybrid “chondola” that combines a chairlift and gondola. These lifts serve eight distinct peaks, each with its own terrain and personality.

James Niehues captured the magic of Sunday River in this ski map in 2002. While a bare-bones diagram of runs might be enough to help people navigate the mountain, Niehues went further, bending his artistic talents to capture the personality and beauty of this resort. His love for the mountains shows through in his work, and this map is a great representation of what makes Sunday River so wonderful.
