Mother-daughter Bonding on a Wintry Weekend Getaway to Sunday River, Maine






This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Visit Maine for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
There is so much to love about Maine…beaches, lighthouses, lakes, mountains, parks, great food (and beer)…making it fun to visit in every season. But if we are going to Maine in the winter, there is no place we like better than Sunday River ski resort. It is where Hannah learned to ski and where we keep coming back again and again. But it has been a few years since we have been to our “happy place,” so whenVisit Maineinvited us for a Maine winter getaway, we leapt at the opportunity for a mother-daughter trip.
It is amazing how you can spend so much time with your family, but still need to get away from day-to-day life to feel a different connection. Hannah and I spendtwo hours together in the car each day, nightly family dinners where it is often just the two of us when Glenn is traveling, and bedtime tuck-ins. We talk a lot, we enjoy being together, but being together at home is just go, go, go.I have work to get done, she has homework, I have a call, she has an activity. Stepping away from those commitments gives us a chance to connect in a different and sometimes deeper way, like we were able to do this up in Maine this week. I always find that doing an activity side-by-side is the best way to make those connections. We’ve done it rock climbing, kayaking, and even at a spa— and now skiing.
Maine Winter Getaways
A Maine winter vacation offers plenty of opportunities to be active together.Outdoor adventureabounds with a plethora ofwinter activities.You can ski, snowboard, snow shoe, go snowmobiling, ice skate, and even try out dog sledding! For a truly “local” experience, you can hire a Registered Maine guides to take you out on a winter adventure and show you some of their favorite spots. I still want to go snowmobiling one winter, as I have such fun memories of doing this as a kid, but for this trip, we were focused on skiing at Sunday River.
Sunday River for Families
Hannah developed a love for skiing on our very first trip to Sunday River and we keep coming back because the resort is so great for families. I’ve written about it before but some of the things that I love are:

Excellent ski school — Hannah has always had a great experience and when I book her in a full day program, many times the afternoon groups are so small that she gets very personalized instruction
Kid programming — they have “kids’ night out” so parents can have a dinner to themselves and they also offer family dinners on certain evenings up at the North Peak Lodge where you can take the gondola up for dinner on the mountain
Eddy the Yeti — their fuzzy mascot has been known to make an appearance and thrill the little kids
Ski in/ski out lodging options
Consolidated beginner terrain — so many of their green trails are centered at the South Ridge Lodge area, near the ...
