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!

Updated Links – Sunday River 2019

We hope everyone is having a fantastic summer! Just a quick update to let you know Sunday River updated some of their booking links; we have updated the site but if you had saved any links from earlier email updates they may no longer work.

All the information you need can be found on our Booking at Sunday River page.  An information poster summarizing booking details for our group can be viewed here as well: Duggan Ski Group 2019. Displayed prices are valid until October 15, 2018!

Latest Conditions

We thought those of you not following us on Facebook might be missing out on some of the recent pictures we have been sharing of both Jay Peak and Sunday River!

Conditions at both resorts are looking excellent, with so much more snow than we are seeing here in Nova Scotia! Jay Peak has received close to 3 feet of snow in the past 6 days with even more snow in the forecast tomorrow. Sunday River has also had it’s fair share of the white stuff and is predicting over 6 inches tomorrow.

Check out Jay Peak:


And Sunday River:


Hard to believe that those of you travelling to Sunday River during the New Brunswick March Break (the ‘early week’) will already be at the hill in just under a 1 month. And of course, just over 1 month for the rest of us travelling for the Nova Scotia March Break 🙂

All images are courtesy of the respective resort Facebook pages. See more of Sunday River here, and Jay Peak here, And of course, check out the Duggan Ski Group Facebook page.

March 2018 Trip Options

It is hard to believe it is September already, but that means thinking about our annual March Break Ski Trips (yay!). This year, we are very excited to add an additional destination to offer our Duggan Ski Group members; Jay Peak Resort in Jay, Vermont.

Jay Peak is a true vacation resort with more than just amazing skiing and snowboarding. There is a huge indoor waterpark, ice skating rink, beautiful lodging, and much more!

As promised, we have been busy updating our website with booking information for our Jay Peak trip; please click here for those details. Some points to highlight:

  • Duggan Ski Group will handle all of your personalized booking needs (information, special group rates, customized quotes, payment handling in CAD, etc.)
  • All quotes and payments for your trip will be in Canadian Dollars, no need to worry about exchange rates
  • More activities available than just skiing and snowboarding

Check out the other headers under Jay Peak for more information on the resort and what it has to offer. We will be adding more information here in the near future as well, so stay tuned for more updates and photos.

As in previous years, we will still be facilitating trips to Sunday River, Maine. There are a few changes to the Sunday River trips this year, please click here for those details. Some points to highlight:

  • Due to changes made by Sunday River, Duggan Ski Group will not personally handle your booking of lift passes and lodging; you must directly contact the hill to make your reservations
  • There are still benefits to being part of the Duggan Ski Group with lodging rates discounts and dining cards included (please mention the Duggan Ski Group while booking through the hill for these benefits)

And as always, we will provide lodging discounts in Freeport and Bangor for your travels to and from either destination. We will also update our website and Facebook page with information pertaining to all trips to help you in your planning.

We look forward to hearing from you and please contact us if you would like a quote for Jay Peak or have any questions on either trip.

Sunday River 2018 Booking Process

Things have changed slightly since our latest post on booking with Sunday River in the future. The below is everything you need to know on booking your trip in March 2018, based on their new policy.

There is a new link on the Sunday River site to help you plan your trip, including pricing information for both lodging and lift passes.

The most important change to note is you will need to call the hill directly at 1-800-543-2754 to book your trip. Duggan Ski Group will not be handling your booking personally. However, when you call to book, make sure you mention the Duggan Ski Group to receive a bonus dining card. Specifically, you should refer to booking reference “Duggan March 2018” or reservation #85r4zu. Dining cards will be issued at check-in for five-night midweek reservations, in denominations of $25 per standard or studio room and $50 per one-bedroom or larger unit.

Eligible dates are March 4 – 9, March 11 – 16, and March 18 – 23, 2018

All prices are listed on the Sunday River website, with separate pricing for lodging and lift passes. Prices are in US funds, and lodging rates do not include a 20% tax and resort fee. The hill can answer any of your questions on the pricing and booking process at 1-800-543-2754. The current prices are scheduled to increase after October 1, 2017, so remember to book early if you are planning on a March 2018 trip for the best prices.

We have updated this information under the Sunday River menu as well. Email us if you have questions, however please keep in mind that under Sunday River’s new booking policy we will not have the ability to manage your booking. This includes the purchase of dining cards, room selection and preferences, or room availability. Your entire booking must be done by calling the hill directly (1-800-543-2754). This also applies to managing changes, cancellations or requests once you have booked your trip.

Despite these changes, we are very excited to be going back to the hill next year and hope to see many of you return as well 🙂
