Who’s getting excited?

Many of you are traveling for your trip next week;  let us know if you have any questions or feel free to post a question on the Facebook group for feedback from other group members.

The forecast for Newry is showing a bit of a mix throughout the week; with temperatures potentially warming – pack your layers! Still looks like it will cool down during the nights to keep the conditions great.

The mountain report is updated daily on the Sunday River website and app; we will also plan to post screen shots on social media stories each morning.

Although we don’t have a group discount with them, wanted to mention we had a great experience at the Best Western in Woodstock. Fantastic staff, and close to the US border! As always, we have the group rates available in Bangor as well as Freeport.

We had a fantastic time last week, can’t wait to hear how the rest of our crew does next week. Please tag us on Instagram or use the hashtag #dugganskigroup ; we love to see what you are up to!

Sad news for the Duggan Ski Group

One of our earliest and most enthusiastic members, Bruce Warren, passed away this past week.

Bruce loved to ski and always enjoyed a good time. He regularly traveled to various ski hills, and while at Sunday River he made the most of every moment on the slopes.

At Sunday River last year, part of his outfit included an O2 generator strapped to his chest; not skiing was not an option for Bruce. This would be the last time he hit the slopes.

Many of you may have met Bruce over the years; either on the hill, at the wine and cheese, in the hot tub, or as a part of the many apres ski get-togethers.

A permanent fixture of the Duggan Ski Group, Bruce will be missed greatly by all of us.

His obituary can be found here.

Fall Price Increase Reminder

The leaves are changing, there is a coolness in the air, and Sunday River has even reported snowflakes in recent weeks! What does that mean for us? The first Sunday River price increase is happening very soon!

The current prices are valid through October 15th, 2019 and are set to increase after that. We do not know what the price increase will be, but they have gone up at this time in the past.
