Maine is a winter sports mecca and GraceNote Inn & Spa’s location makes us the perfect home base for any and all of your wintertime adventures. Skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, show-shoeing, even ice-climbing, dog sledding, and more are all within easy reach of our Bethel, Maine bed and breakfast.
One of the biggest draws, of course, is Sunday River Ski Resort, located just 5 miles away in Newry, ME. Sunday River is one of the state’s most popular skiing destinations, with 135 trails across eight mountain peaks; the most terrain of any ski resort on the East Coast! The resort also features a vertical drop of 2,340 feet (710 m), the second largest in Maine, and recently installed a brand new, 8-person ski lift!
Sunday River Ski Resort
Most know Sunday River for its excellent downhill skiing and snowboarding. That’s not all they offer, however. Not by a long shot! Visitors to the resort will find a variety of activities for everyone, young and old alike.
Beyond skiing, you can also ice skate, hit the slopes with a Sno-Go ski bike. The resort rental shop is well stocked with skis, snowboards, boots, helmets, and poles for all ages. Lessons in skiing, snowboarding, and ski biking are also available.
You say you don’t want to stop skiing just because the sun has gone down? You don’t have to! The resort offers Twilight Skiing under lights from 3pm to 6:30pm on select Friday nights, Saturday nights, and holidays. Fun!
Speaking of sparkling lights, those looking for a magical experience will enjoy the Après Aglow Walk. This attraction is a half-mile trail through the forest lit with thousands of lights, hot chocolate included. Fun for the whole family!
You’ll also find on-site shopping, dining, and special events like fireworks, live bands, magic shows, and fire dancers. Best of all, the resort is open all year round, offering warm season attractions in summer and fall. Hiking, golfing, scenic lift rides, concerts, and more.
