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

Slightly less elevation that you'd get at the bigger corporate resorts and the lifts are more dated, but the runs are just as good (lots of tree runs at various levels) and we... read more

Slightly less elevation that you'd get at the bigger corporate resorts and the lifts are more dated, but the runs are just as good (lots of tree runs at various levels) and we never waited in a lift line. The lift operators were also great - really looked out for the young kids and practically knew them by name by... More

This was our first time skiing in Colorado. We chose Sunlight because it's family friendly and not crowded- what a great place! The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a private lesson with Jack. He worked with us, really improved our skiing and made the experience even more fun! There's a great little grill, bar, deck, coffee shop,... More

This is the second time my family has come here. Nice intermediate terrain with an old school vibe. Only three lifts, two center-bar doubles and one triple, so not the best place for beginners or people who don't like pokey rides to the top. The parking lot, lift, and concession staff were friendly enough to make up for rude ticket... More

Hubs and I had never skied here before, but since we were in the area and possessed the Gems discount card, we thought, Why not? We are happy we did because this little jewel of a resort was so much fun! It probably helped that we were there during the epic, weeklong snow dump in mid-January, so we found plenty... More

What a great afternoon! AJ guided our group on the adventure tour last week. This was no follow the leader ride, although you will travel single file on trails out to Baylor Park. Once up in the park we had lots of awesome freeride opportunities. What a blast racing full throttle across huge powder fields. Thanks again for a great... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and wanted to go snowmobiling and boy did we pick the perfect place! Our tour guide, Ty, was wonderful, super friendly, and never complained when asked to take a bunch of pictures for us or helping getting us unstuck a couple times :) Ty escorted us on the adventure tour, which I...

Fantastic snowmobile adventure for myself and 12 year old daughter. We had a blast and will definitely make it a point to return, Ty, our guide, was first class and just a great overall guy. Epic day with tons of fresh powder. The scenery was top shelf regardless of weather conditions and really gives you a great glimpse of the... More

This place is very accessible from Glenwood Springs (only about 20 minutes driving from the Hotel Colorado. Only 3 lifts here, but the snow is great and the lift lines are non-existent. Very affordable lift tickets especially if you go to liftopia.com. I was alone, but this would be a great place for a family trip to the slopes as... More
