“This is hands-down the best February in terms of natural snowfall that Sunday River has seen in over a decade,” Darcy Lambert, Director of Communications for Sunday River Resort, says. “Conditions are incredible,” Noelle Tuttle, Communications Manager for Sugarloaf, confirms. “Sugarloaf is one inch away from beating its best February in 22 years—an ideal set up for next week’s holiday period.”
