Over the years, Sunlight Mountain Ski Resort has cultivated a reputation as a family-friendly, affordable skiing and snowboarding destination. An ideal mix that’s comprised of 75 percent beginner and intermediate runs. That’s more than enough terrain to keep most people busy from their opening run to their last turn of the day. Though for the adventure seeker, the resort’s East Ridge with its extreme double-black diamond runs provides added thrills!
Resort Facts & by the Numbers
More than half of the trails at Sunlight are aimed at intermediate skiers and snowboarders. From the summit, skiers and riders not only have unhindered views of Mt. Sopris and the West Elk Range, they can access some of Sunlight’s most notable runs including Ute, one of the longest runs in Colorado! At the other end of the spectrum, there’s Heathen, one of the steepest runs in the state! Be sure to proceed with caution!
