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 « less

My family, including my young kids and my parents, visited Sunlight Mountain Resort this year and had the perfect ski vacation. This is not the place for you if you are looking for the biggest or most fancy resort. But, if you are looking for a laid back ski experience in a beautiful setting, then Sunlight is for you.

Sunlight always closes the week before a huge dump. Not very appetizing when the season tickets are close to the same price as the 5 BIG mountain Vail resorts season pass.

When visiting Sunlight Mountain snowmobiling is a MUST! AJ and Ty will hook you up! The first day we went on the snowmobile Family Ride and it was so AMAZING that we signed up for the Adventure Ride the very next day! Our tour guide, Ty, was fantastic! He is enthusiastic about his job and makes you feel as if... More

My wife and I adored this mountain and the people on it. We were first time skiers and took a group lesson, which ended up being just the two of us. Our instructor, Jim, was excellent. He catered his instruction to our ability level, progressing when we were ready as opposed to throwing us up on the mountain and hoping... More

I had to get on here to make a review about our experience because it was simply amazing! AJ worked with us having a large group of 25 to be able to have an enjoyable experience with snowmobiling and we are truly grateful for that! Everyone in our group had nothing but good things to say and we highly recommend... More

Snow conditions were very good even though it had not snowed in a few days. Nice views of Mt Sopris. It fely like our own private ski area most of... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days of skiing here. Plenty of terrain to choose from and never really had a lift line to deal with. First 2 days were sunshine and in the 40"s but the groomed snow was still frozen until noon but still very skiable. Third day we awoke to 5 inches of powder and sunny skies and it... More

No lines at lifts, good ski lessons, friendly people at lodge, good mix of trails. Great place to learn or hone your skills. Rentals on site but cheaper at downtown store on 9th street. Ski lift tickets are under $50 but can get even better deal on Liftopia.

If you want to be seen skiing, go to Vail or similar, there are plenty of choices. If you are more focused on actual skiing, give this place a shot. The whole place has a very 70s feel to it. No shortage of locals who've been skiing since birth, great staff who want to keep things fun, and no lines... More
