Have read much about alpine mountain parks but never biked one until Sunrise a week ago (June 2014). Sunrise is easy to get to and the cost is reasonable. There were very few folks using the chair lift so never a wait to get back up the mountain. On the down side I missed many single track opportunities due to... More

Sunrise opened for an "extra weekend" April 4-6. I reserved a room for three nights and drove up from Phoenix on Thursday night (4 hour drive) all excited about about a weekend of skiing for my girlfriend, myself and her two boys. The proprietors advertised that 75% of Sunrise Peak was open. It may have been open but it was... More

Skiing here was a blast! Sunrise has many runs for beginners and intermediate skiers, so it was perfect for us. It looks to have plenty of challenging & difficult trails for advanced skiers and snowboarders, but we were not ready for any of those. Regular lift tickets are $63 per day for adults or $40 for a half-day (info about... More

Our Texas family decided to ski a couple days while on our way to the Grand Canyon. We have a national timeshare and the choice of Sunrise was because it was the closest ski resort to an available condo. We have some skiing experience, and did not have high expectations. We were totally surprised and impressed. No, this is not... More

We live in Pinetop and have been skiing Sunrise for years. This year the resort is under new management and new ski school staff and it really shows. The hills are groomed and every night they make new snow on a couple fo the runs. Courteous staff, the food is better and the facilities cleaner. Thanks to the White Mt... More

We enjoyed three skiing days on the MLK weekend. Of course there was low snow but the nightly grooming kept the major runs skiable and all three mountains of the resort were open for skiing. A few very steep and advanced runs lacked enough snow, but that isn't a fault of the resort. I was impressed that the resort kept... More

We are from Ohio so this skiing was far better. I was impressed with how many different choices there are for a varied experience. We never waited in line for lifts with more than a couple people ahead of us. Despite temps in the mid 50's (awesome skiing conditions for someone who doesn't like the cold weather), the trails were... More

My husband took the kids skiing while I planned to stay in the lodge and read then join them for lunch. I wished I had stayed at the hotel. The lodge is so outdated, I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't upgraded since the 60s because it needs an upgrade in the worst way. They have school cafeteria tables for... More

Skiied Sunrise over Christmas break. Weather was wonderful, which really helped the experience. Great for small children learning to ski. One fast quad lift. Other side of mountain looked great for skiing but accessed by really slow 2 chair lfit. If they replaced that it could be awesome. Only complaint we had was emplyees. Altogether unfriendly-by and large all employees... More

Went to Sunrise with some friends from Phoenix and was very pleasantly suprised. It hadn't snowed in several days but the snow was good. (Only 1 icy run in 2 days at the end of December.) The lift lines were short. And parking was easy. It was like skiing in Colorado in March but without the crowds. Couldn't have asked... More
