Ski area- Maine news from the Rumford Meteor

RUMFORD, Maine — Ski resorts in western Maine are undergoing renovations and upgrading equipment in anticipation of the upcoming season. Sunday River in Newry is planning to invest $1 million to install 300 new energy-efficient snow guns that use up to 90 percent less compressed air than the old ones, according to a news release from Ski Maine Association. Darcy Morse, director of communications at Sunday River, said Sunday River will open “as early as possible.” She said a snow-making test was done Oct. 13, but the temperatures were a little too high to warrant making more. Sunday River will also open a one-mile Kids Adventure Trail from the mid-mountain Peak Lodge to the South Ridge base area, the release said. (read more at Bangor Daily News)
