I wanted to show you all a little bit about what we do up at Sunday River all week. Here is a video about us, and I think it’s pretty good. SPIRIT OF FULL DISCLOSURE: This is a 3 year old video. Only the old guy with the gray beard is the same.  But the activity is essentially the same one talked about in the vid.  Enjoy!

Again, enjoy!
