Attraction details
Owner description: 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

I'm so glad we were able to fit snowmobiling into our trip!!! Ty and AJ were fantastic tour guides! Ty is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about snowmobiling. The guys made sure that everyone had proper attire and would be comfortable for the trip. The equipment was very nice also. The scenery throughout the tour is breathtaking! If you're looking for an epic adventure go with these guys!!! I'll be back!!! Thank you Ty and AJ for an awesome experience!!!

As noted in previous reviews the snowmobile tours guided by Ty are one of the best outdoor adventures around! The equipment is well maintained, Ty is an excellent guide, teacher and outdoorsman. He knows the trails inside and out and caters to your level and creates a fantastic experience. His cat like reflexes are not bad either! The scenery includes high mountain ranges, snowy evergreen hilly paths and wide open spaces. Worth every penny and then some to do the adventure afternoon trip. Don't miss it!

one of the last real small mountains, run by locals, I assume owned locally, this place is a true GEM! Close to Glenwood Springs, a few hotels on mountain, and NOBODY there. We had powder 3 days after the storm, my longest lift line in 3 days had 6 people in it. Killer food at the base, Liftopia got me sweet ticket deals 30+ days before our trip.

I only had one day to sneak in some skiing on this trip and had never been to Sunlight Mountain. I lucked out and went on a perfect clear calm day that got up to about 30 degrees. Everyone there was fantastic. It had snowed 5 inches the day before and was groomed to perfection. There were no lift lines. The food was very good. I chose to get my rental equipment and pass the night before from their shop in Glenwood Springs. Loren the ski tech was awesome. This was a fantastic day of skiing. It is a smaller resort which makes it perfect for people who have not skied much or have not been on skis for a while. A great place to get your ski legs back. If you want challenging terrain there are a number of narrow black runs to test you.

Only one word could describe our morning with Sunlight Snowmobile Tours...amazing!!! We had the perfect snow day for snowmobiling. Ty and Steve were excellent tour guides. For the part of the group who wanted to go fast, Ty was a great guide. While Steve was there for those of us that wanted to go at their own slower pace. They both were very responsive for any problems (i.e., someone going off track) and we had such a great time. I would definitely recommend going on the first ride in the morning. The freshly fallen snow was perfect for a smooth ride and you really get to kick up some snow. This made for an excellent first ski trip and definitely the best highlight of the trip.
