Sunlight features 67 named trails covering over 470 acres. In addition to miles of cruising intermediate terrain, Sunlight's East Ridge has one of the steeper runs in the state. Aptly named, The Heathen falls beneath your feet at a breathtaking 52 degrees. Sunlight is home to one of the longest trails in ski country, Ute, a beginner slope that winds more than 2 miles from summit to base. Sunlight also hosts some of the best tree skiing in Colorado with many aspen groves untracked days after snowfall. All trails converge at the base lodge, so friends and family can always keep track of each other

My family and I enjoyed the slopes, even though only the lower lift was the only one operating due to lack of snow. Way more affordable than Vail and other resorts in the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. We paid $105 for a lesson,...More

The road to the resort is a bit of a slog on a 12 mile long, well maintained, two lane road. The resort is nothing fancy, which is much of the charm. It is a family resort with plenty of intermediate trails, but there are...More

Good value for families. Sort of run down- appears owners are milking it with no improvements. Sad, because could be a great instead of so-so family destination.

The lifts are slow but that means fewer folks on your chosen run! And the lifties are friendly and helpful! The runs and grooming are awesome! It's small, but you can ski or ride the whole thing....meaning lots of tree runs and powder long after...More

This was a nice change from the I-70 ski resorts. Economical and not crowded. Our entire family had fun skiing this mountain.

Sunlight is a nice small ski resort, not over crowded. The staff was all very helpful and friendly. We will definitely go back next year!

We've skied all over Colorado and Sunlight is my favorite! It's slow, old-school lifts give you time to enjoy the views and the runs are well-cared for. I love that the whole family can enjoy the mountain and meet at the one lodge at the...More

I just called the resort and they said they do not allow ski bikes on the mountain while the lifts are running. If you want to ride something like that after the resort is closed, it's considered National Forest. If you have... More

Probably not at the resort. But I would imagine you could find childcare in town. Try the Rec Center or maybe a sitter service.
