Cool temperatures last night in Newry, Maine had Sunday River firing up their snowmaking guns for the first time of the season. The ski resort successfully fired up 40 guns on its T2 trail on Locke Mountain as a test of its snowmaking system.
Sunday River typically opens on or around Halloween.
Sunday River’s snowmaking system is an impressive operation totaling 1,900 snowguns, including HKD Impulse Tower Guns and Boyne Low-E Fan Guns. The guns cover 95 percent of its 135 trails.
