Gould Academy / Sunday River: Surface Lift for 2019/20
Gould Academy will have a surface lift in time for the 2019-2020 season, giving Gould the premier training and competition venue in the northeast. Our deepest thanks to those of you who have supported this Race to the Top Campaign.
The surface lift, a T-bar in this case, will be a differentiator for Gould and will distinguish our On Snow Competition Program as one of the strongest in the country. We will break ground this spring, and the lift will be ready for the start of the competition season.
Race to the Top is a joint effort of Gould Academy, Sunday River, and Sunday River Ski & Snowboard Club to create the premier training and competition venue in the northeast.
Installing a surface lift along the length of Monday Mourning means more repetitions for all student-athletes training at Sunday River and better results. This lift will have a major impact on our program and immediately benefit our student-athletes.
By decreasing lift time by almost 40%, a surface lift provides greater training efficiency and more engagement with coaches. Another big bonus, no more wind holds! These improvements position Sunday River and Gould Academy as a premier competition and training venue.
