    8 PEAKS


    It was 1958 when a handful of skiers climbed Locke Mountain and cut Sunday River’s first trails down through the Maine woods. Since then, their spirit of exploration and adventure inspired the generations that followed as those trails grew into a network that spans eight mountain peaks.

    White Cap

    White Heat has long held its place as Sunday River’s signature double diamond – big, bold and straight down the fall line. But that’s just the beginning. No matter which way you head off the open summit you'll find a mix of steeps, trees and hidden pockets of snow. Make sure you’re locked in and ready for a challenge.
