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 barely, and I mean barely, skiable. The only place for the two novices in our group to ski was the tiny bunny slope and it was slush by 11 AM. There is no way they could have skiied any of the green runs off the two other operating chairs. I am an advanced skier and the older boy is an intermediate skier and we gave up after three runs. Many bare spots, thin snow and terrible spring conditions. There were only two intermediate/novice runs off the main chairs that had reasonable snow cover and even that snow was marginal. I've skied in the late spring all over the US and this is by far the worst open mountain I've ever seen. Sunrise should not have opened for this "extra weekend". It was obviously a money grab and nothing else.
