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!

Final Price Jump

Happy Monday! Sunday River is starting the week with 12” of new snow in the past week and 30” average base depth. 129 trails are open; the most open terrain in New England!

This is your friendly reminder current prices will go up one more time after this Saturday, February 15th. Conditions are looking incredible so don’t miss out.

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to book any hotels you might need for travel along the way. We have the discounts and booking information for these here.

You also may want to download the mobile app, it is a great way to check out the trail map in advance as well as view current conditions while on site.

We also spotted some familiar faces on the Sundar River website this morning, and had to share. 😉

Keep sharing our discount code and bring your friends along. We love being a part of your family traditions.

Sunday River Lift Pass 2020

When you arrive at the hill at the start of your vacation, your season passes will not be waiting for you at the hotel when you check in – you must go to the season pass desk at South Ridge Lodge in order to pick up your pass. Your photo will be taken and your pass will be created for you.

You will be required to sign a Liability Release Form as well for your Canadian March Passport. There is a link to an electronic signature option through the Sunday River site here for you to sign in advance: E-Sign Season Pass Liability Release Form. (note, if you are having trouble with the link, it doesn’t seem to work as well in internet explorer so please try a different browser).

The hours of operation at the season pass desk are:

  • Saturday and Sunday 7am to 4pm
  • Monday through Friday 8-4pm

Any other questions on picking up your pass please let us know!

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!

Sunday River 2020

Happy Monday! We are starting to update our site with information for 2020; you can find updated rates and information for Sunday River, under the Sunday River tab and by viewing the updated Duggan Ski Group 2020 flyer.

These rates are valid until October 15th, 2019, and includes the following eligible dates: March 1-6, 2020; March 8-13, 2020; and March 15-20, 2020

More information to come for Jay Peak 🙂

Thank you!

Thank you for another great year! We saw some of the best snow conditions in recent memory at both Sunday River and Jay Peak. We hope everyone had a wonderful vacation!

Once we receive new information on the Sunday River booking process for 2020, we will be sure to pass it along and update the site. They are planning on making improvements to the process and we know our group members always have a fantastic time there.

Hard to believe, but the planning for our 2020 Jay Peak trip has already begun. The pricing is yet to be finalized, but we have prebooked a block of rooms for group members. We have already booked 6 rooms at Hotel Jay – this was the earliest we have ever booked rooms! We have received such amazing feedback on Jay Peak that we are happy to be booking vacations here again for the upcoming season.

Here in Nova Scotia, the March break dates will be March 16 – 20, 2020. This also aligns with the Ontario school system March break, which means there will be a high demand for rooms and less availability than we have had in the past. If you know you are interested in a ski vacation, best to book early and secure your spot. At this time, we are taking names for Jay Peak on a tentative basis – no deposit required. As always, rooms are on a first come, first serve basis.

We will be updating our photos on the site and sharing some to our Facebook page, please feel free to share some of your own!

Miscellaneous Updates

Sunday River:

The current prices at Sunday River are current until tomorrow, February 15th. If you are thinking of booking, book now to avoid the next price increase! See our page for more info and share our booking code with friends.

Hopefully you won’t need this information, but if you are in need of car repairs while at the resort: we had work done at the Savage Auto service center in Bethel last year and they were very helpful.

Jay Peak Resort:

Housekeeping is offered daily at Hotel Jay and Tram Haus Lodge. There will be Keurig machines in each room, and a small stash of K-cups will be given daily.

Our unfilled rooms are being dropped from our group tomorrow, February 15th. What does this mean for you? If you haven’t yet booked, rooms will now be on a first come, first served basis from the resort. We will need to check with them for availability for each request and hope there is something still available.

General:

We have updated the website to include a weather page to pull together a number of locations that may be helpful at a glance while you are travelling and looking ahead to the trip. This page can be found by clicking here or can be found under the General Info drop-down in the main menu.
