Jay Peak in April

Anyone interested in an April skiing option? We have a limited time deal to pass along to our members 🙂

If you call the resort between today, November 7th (in the evening) and Monday, November 11th and refer to the Toronto Show, Jay Peak will have a deal offered of 25% off 5 nights and at par!

Payment and booking will be directly through the hill; you can mail a cheque for 50% of your stay and bring the rest in cash at check in. Note: the Reservation Team will require a depoist of $100 on a credit card to confirm the booking and that $100 will not be at par, but the remaining balance will.

Reservations at Jay Peak: 1(800) 451-4449. Remember, in order to take advantage of this deal, you must call between November 7th (in the evening) and Monday, November 11th and refer to the Toronto Show.

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.

If you are thinking of booking a trip, now is a great time to do so and save some money on your trip. One night stay is due at the time of booking as your deposit on the accomodations portion of the trip.

Remember, you book directly through the Sunday River website using our special group discount code to save even more. All of the details can be found on our detailed booking post.

Don’t miss out on the savings!


Ski Wentworth Demo Days

We wanted to share some information on this weekend’s demo day at Ski Wentworth.

This weekend (Saturday, February 2nd and Sunday, February 3rd from 10am – 2pm) Aerobics First will be at Ski Wentworth with industry reps showcasing all the latest and greatest skis for you to try. They will have skis from Head, Salomon, Atomic, Rossignol & Volkl, as well as goggles from Zeal to test.

This can be a great chance to try out some different gear, and the best part – it’s completely free!

Aerobics First (here in Halifax) is also currently offering 20% off all adult skis and boots for season pass holders at Martock, Wentworth or Ben Eion, in-store (just bring your pass to show staff at time of purchase).

Note – we aren’t affiliated with Aerobics First but love to share local information and events with you. We have taken advantage of demo opportunities in the past ourselves, and find the experience to be extremely helpful when shopping for any new gear.

Last Call

This is your last reminder for Sunday River’s lowest prices of the season, as they are set to increase on Monday, October 15th!!

Remember, the detailed information and all the links you need can all be found here: Booking at Sunday River. Our last post also gave you an example cost along with the booking links, as it is all done directly through Sunday River.

If you are planning your vacation, we don’t want you to miss out on the lowest rates 🙂 The Sunday River cancellation policy is also very generous for your booked lodging. Your deposit, less a $50 cancellation fee, will be refunded on cancellations made more than 14 days prior to arrival.

Happy Friday!

October 15

A Few Updates

We have a couple of updates to pass along!

Sunday River has confirmed the Wine and Cheese events will be held on both Mondays we will be there. See the FAQ section for more information.

As well, be sure to look at the Black Diamond Entertainment series as there are events planned both weeks we will be there. Wednesday, March 8 (7 PM) has planned a “Mad Science Fire and Ice Show” and Thursday, March 16 (7 PM) is “Circus Maine“.  Mad Science is being held at the Summit Ballroom and Circus Maine will be at the South Ridge Lodge. Tickets sold at the door or lodging property front desks.

Children 5 & under: Free
Children 12 & under: $5
Adults 13 & over: $8

If you follow us on Facebook, you may have noticed we recently shared an article on the  meteorologist at Sunday River. He had some very promising things to say for our timelines!

“… we’re eyeing a more significant pattern change that will bring us back to more consistent cold – and at times snowy weather – for what could be the majority of the next two months … This means that we’ve yet to see the best of the season. I feel we’ll see a good deal of snow going forward … I think this will be a lot like the 92-93 season, which had no great shakes up until we got dumped on in February and March.”

And lastly, just a reminder that Cleve’s is continuing to offer a 15% discount to Duggan Ski Group members on your ski / snowboard wax and tune-ups. This is at both their Halifax and Dartmouth locations.

There are currently 125 runs open at Sunday River, with 7 inches of new snow in the past 4 days!

Openings and Open Houses

Hard to believe with the warm temperatures we have been seeing in Halifax, but Sunday River has announced their planned opening day – November 23rd! They are planning on top-to-bottom skiing on both Aurora and Barker mountains.


Also, this Saturday is the Open House at Ski Wentworth. Saturday, November 19th from 10 am – 2pm, they have quite a few things planned:

    A portion of all sales go to the Canadian Ski Patrol.
  • Rental Shop Ski & Boot Inventory Sell Out:
    Ski Wentworth bought all new HEAD skis & boots for the 2016-17 season. That means great deals on their existing ski & boot rental fleet. $50 will give you a pair of skis, plus two pairs of boots. Great idea if you were thinking of renting gear this year, or even to get two different size boots for the kids as they grow. Note, the $50 does not include poles but your bindings are included!
  • Dave Wilson’s Ski Shop:
    All the latest Ski Wentworth logo wear, gloves, mitts, helmets and more!
  • Season Pass “NO HST” Sale:
    Your final chance to save on a season pass. Must come to the Open House to get the deal. Pick up your season pass for the 2016-17 season!
