On December 19, 1959, Sunday River Skiway opened, mostly through the work of a dedicated group of volunteers and business people from Bethel. Since opening with a rope tow and T-bar and just a handful of runs, Sunday River has grown into one of the largest and busiest ski resorts in New England. Author and former Sunday River Ski Patrol director David Irons explores the establishment and evolution of one of the Northeast’s most celebrated and time-honored recreational attractions. The book features numerous historical and contemporary photographs, as well as period marketing pieces. 112 pages, hardcover.
