Mark your calendar for Sunday River’s Solar Eclipse Viewing Party with MMGM!

Join us up at Sunday River’s North Peak for fun, food, special eclipse glasses, and a whole lot more! Hold a piece of the Moon and snap some epic shots at Sunday River’s high mountain photo booth, enter your name in MMGM’s raffle to win some other-worldly prizes (A heart-shaped muonionalusta meteorite pendant, Solar System chalk, glow-in-the-dark stars and planets, heat-activated changing moon mug, a Chelyabinsk meteorite tumbler, and more!), and experience the eclipse from the mountain tops!

Skiing or snowboarding not required! You can purchase tickets to ride the Chondola on-site at South Ridge Lodge. Lift tickets will be issued until 3:30PM or until capacity is reached. The Chondola powers down at 4PM, so if you are planning to ride the lift back down to the bottom, please load before last chair at 4PM. 

Also! Sunday River pass holders and those purchasing day tickets for the Eclipse weekend will enjoy a $5 discount on their MMGM admission from April 6 to April 8.

How to Redeem: 
Present your season pass or receipt from your day ticket, showing any day between April 6 and 8, at the museum. 

FYI:Warm winter gear, or clothing appropriate for the conditions which includes boots with rubber soles, is highly recommended. 

And, don’t worry, if you miss this party. You can catch the next one in about 360 years …
