NEWRY, Maine (AP) - Maine has been experiencing a phenomenal stretch of warm, sunny weather but that hasn’t stopped a Maine ski resort from testing its snow guns.

Sunday River completed a full test of its systems at daybreak Tuesday, firing up 40 snow guns as it prepares for the season that typically starts around Halloween.

Resort President and General Manager Dana said the early snowmaking test on the last day of summer is “proof we are ready to get back on the hill.”

The warm weather has delayed the change of leaves on trees but it was cold enough overnight for the resort to test its guns. The resort has not yet set an opening date.
