World Snowshoe Wife Carrying Championship

Sunday River is excited to announce we will be the new home for the World Snowshoe Wife Carrying Championship.

Registration is now open! The course is at the base area of Barker Mountain. 

Much like the North American Wife Carrying Championship, it will be run over an obstacle course that is approximately 253 meters (278 yards). The course begins with three rollers made out of snow, followed by a slalom course, whaleback, and lastly a mogul field. Teams cannot advance on the course if the carried partner is drop. He or she must be mounted properly before continuing on, or they will be disqualified from the competition.  

The only equipment that will be allowed during the competition will be a belt worn by the carrier to give the partner something to grasp, helmet & goggles (required), and obviously, snowshoes. If you don't have snowshoes, we will provide you with some. Several different carrying techniques have been used successfully, including the "piggy-back", the "fireman's carry", the "Estonian carry." Any carrying technique that keeps the partner from touching the ground is permissible.  

The race will run in heats with two teams racing at one time. The two teams with the fastest times (not necessarily the winners in each heat) will qualify for the championship round. The winner of the championship round will be declared the Wife Carrying Snowshoe World Champion.    

Prizes will be given to the top 3 teams, as well as the fastest team with a combined age over 80, and the fastest team with a combined weight over 350 lbs. Contestants need not be related but must be over the age of 21. A maximum of 50 teams will be allowed to compete.  

The day also includes a tailgate party in the Barker parking lot, complete with live music, prizes for best tailgate, and more.

Santa Sunday

Celebrate the arrival of winter and the upcoming holiday season with more than 250 Santas cruising down to South Ridge. All money raised goes towards the River Fund. Santas must be in full Santa-attire. 

This signature Sunday River event kicks off the holiday season in style. Registration for 2018 is now closed.

How does it work? 250 pre-registered Santas arrive at the resort in full attire and with a $20 donation in hand. Not only is this event photo-worthy and has been featured on the likes of the Travel Channel, but it's for a good cause too. Last year, the in-hand donations made by participating Santas helped raise over $3,000 for the River Fund, formally known as the Sunday River Community Fund.

All pre-registered participants can check-in on Sunday, December 2, between 7:30-10:30AM at Discovery Center next to the South Ridge Lodge. Santas who participate in the 11AM photo shoot will receive an additional lift ticket valid through December 14, 2018. The photo shoot will take place slopeside at South Ridge and will last approximately 45 minutes. Pre-registered participants must arrive at check-in wearing all of the following items: a red Santa hat with white pompom, a red Santa jacket, red Santa pants, a Santa beard, and a $20 (or more) donation to the River Fund.  The lift ticket you receive at check-in is only valid until 11AM. To continue skiing or riding for the day, you will need to show up at the scheduled photo shoot at 11AM slopeside at South Ridge dressed in your Santa attire. At the conclusion of the photo shoot, a ticket valid through December 3-14, 2018, will be issued. 

Spectators should also get to South Ridge by 11AM to get a good vantage point of the Santas.
