As of today, Sunday River Ski Resort intends to open for the 2015/16 winter season this coming Monday, October 19, at 9 a.m., according to a press release. The resort expects to open on the upper T2 trail, accessible via the Locke Mountain Triple lift in Barker Basin. All plans depend on weather and snow conditions; skiers are advised to keep an eye on sundayriver.com and check the resort’s social media channels for the most up-to-date information. The current forecast for western Maine shows temperatures dipping into the 20s and even the teens heading into the weekend, allowing for an extended snowmaking window on Sunday River’s Locke Mountain peak. Lift tickets are expected to be $29 for all ages. “We can’t make any promises, but this forecast looks very favorable,” Dana Bullen, resort president and general manager, said.
