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

If you want the high-falutin' resorts of Aspen, don't go here. But if you want to see all of your friends, get a day of easy to intermediate skiing, few lift lines, and a bit of a funky lodge, go here. Prices beat the up-valley resorts for sure, and you can see that a bit in their lodge, which is a large room with a small restaurant into which everyone crowds for lunch. They have no water fountain, and instead put out water for you to drink. but don't count on the water after 9:00 am. Bring your own. This place is no frills, but you get good runs anyway, There are a few lifts that are not too slow, and some good runs that are good to learn to ski or board on, as well as some runs on which to practice tricks and tree-ski. For the value and the small-town atmosphere, this place can't be beat, but remember, you are not here to see movie stars, just to have some fun.

Old school mountain, fairly small, good skiing for families. Super cheap lift tickets compared to the larger resorts. Good variety of runs. I would recommend to anyone, just be advised the 3 lifts are slow, but not unbearable. Great value mountain!

Don't want high prices and the glitz and glam of Aspen? Check out Sunlight!! Lots of easy runs for the whole family, and lift lines that are short to non-existent. It goes without saying that the view from the top of the mountain is incredible.

Sunlight is a great place for beginners who don't want to spend a great deal of money to learn how to ski or board. I love the mountain because of its great military discounts, its easy & free parking, and little wait at their lift lines. It is not a mountain for destination skiers who want to stay longer than two days, but it is the perfect mountain for getting snow under your board and having an affordable outing with the family.
