New trail and future T-Bar
New trail and future T-Bar

A new trail has been cut at Sunday River as part of a multi-year, $1 million racing project.

Located between Cascades and Wildfire, the new trail features snowmaking and will provide a new way for beginners to descend from the top of the White Cap Quad to the Barker base area. The total construction cost was estimated at $100,000.

Future T-Bar

In the future, phase two of the project calls for the installation of a T-Bar on skier's right of Monday Mourning. The 1,490 foot T-Bar is expected to cost $750,000. The new trail was constructed due to the loss of the novice Over Easy crossover, which will be blocked by the future lift line.

The overall project is a team effort involving Gould Academy, Sunday River Ski & Snowboard Club, and Sunday River.

Established in 1836 as Bethel Academy, Gould Academy features a winter term with significant on-snow time for ski racers.

T-Bars have become increasingly popular amongst racing programs, as they provide direct access to racing slopes while keeping the athletes on the snow. In recent years T-Bars have been installed at Sugarbush, Cannon Mountain, and Burke in conjunction with racing programs.
