Sunday River Geocaching, Chondola Ride, & a Late Lunch

Geocaching at Sunday River!

1. Carpool Meeting Place: Walmart in Windham on Route 302

We'll meet in the parking lot near McDonald's.

This location was chosen because it is on the way to Sunday River from both Portland and my house.

Please meet us here at 9am whether you are planning to drive yourself or carpool. If you live closer to Sunday River, please message me so we can arrange a meeting point/time. Also, if you are going to carpool, please remember to bring a few dollars to chip in for gas money. As always, participation all events including carpooling or driving is taken at your own risk.

2. Carpool Meeting Time: 9am. We will leave the parking lot at 9:10am SHARP so please be on time. I will email everyone my phone number the day before. Please call if you get lost or are running late.

3. Additional Information: You may rent a GPS from Sunday River or use your own if you have one.

From Sunday River's Website:

Ready to treasure hunt with a technological twist? Geocaching is returning to Sunday River for the[masked] summer!. It is an activity that easily involves the whole family and gets people outdoors and involved in physical activity, while encouraging them to work together. Best of all, it's a great activity for any age and requires no previous experience!

Be part of this game that is played throughout the world by adventurists equipped with GPS devices. You can rent resort GPS units to use in your search to locate our eleven hidden geocache boxes with prizes. Our GPS units are simple to operate and you'll be provided with easy to follow instructions.

Sunday River’s geocache points are hidden along the resort’s 12 mile network of designated hiking terrain spanning eight mountain peaks. You'll find some caches easy to find after a short hike on easy terrain, and others much more challenging. You may access all of Sunday River’s geocache locations by hiking from South Ridge Lodge, however we recommend riding the Chondola to North Peak and beginning your geocache adventure from the Peak Lodge to make the most of your day.  You can access the mid-mountain caches easily, hike to the upper mountain caches if desired, and either ride back down or hike down and find the lower mountain caches as you go.

Geocaching equipment is available to rent out of Sunday River Sports in the South Ridge Lodge: $15 for full day use.

Chondola Ride: $12

Total Cost per Person: $27 + $1 meetup fee

    I really did not know what to expect while going into this because I had never done it before and wondered if I could keep up with everyone. But, Rebecca was a wonderful hostess and encouraged all the way!

    Hi, I GeoCache using my Android phone and cgeo.com. Will I be able to use it for this trip instead of renting a GPS unit?

      Hi Laurie. That is very kind of you. I just am curious how exerting this is, as I am out of shape.

    I will be at Walmart at 9:00 - I am willing to drive OR jump into someone else's car- whatever is easiest. Looking forward to a day of treasure hunting!

    • Rebecca

      Sounds great! I'll see you then. Should be fun!

    Hi rebecca,
    Do they have a place to buy lunch or are we bringing our own food?

    August 21, 2012

    • Rebecca

      My thought was that we would grab lunch at the Sunday River Brew pub after we were done geocaching. :)

    We'll be meeting at the Windham Walmart (at the end of the parking lot near the McDonald's) at 9am to head up to Sunday River. Walmart in Windham is on the way from Portland. Even if you are taking your own car, please meet us there in order to coordinate our trip. If you live closer to Sunday River, please let me know so we can set a meeting point & time with you. If you are interested in carpooling or are willing to drive, please respond to this post. In general, we all chip in for gas for the drivers. As always, all events/driving are at your own risk. Also, if you have your own GPS, you may bring that with you instead of renting one at Sunday River. Thank you!

    Usually spots open up close to the date as people double check their calendars and things come up. So stay tuned, and if you're on the wait list, remember that you are agreeing to attend if a spot opens up between now and August 25th. I'm excited to try this out! I think it will be a great time!

    Hi Lisa! If you add yourself to the waiting list, you will automatically be moved to "Yes" and emailed if a spot opens up.
