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

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...More

Probably not at the resort. But I would imagine you could find childcare in town. Try the Rec Center or maybe a sitter service.
