Real Mountain Towns. Real Mountain Fun.
Sunlight Mountain Resort is uniquely situated between two of Colorado's most favorite mountain towns, Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. Rand McNally and USA Today voted Glenwood Springs the Most Fun Town in America and its consistently ranked as one of the top ski towns in the World. Meanwhile Carbondale is a quintessential ski town that has been named one of the country’s best towns by National Geographic and Outside Magazine.
So what’s all the fuss about? Glenwood Springs and Carbondale are genuine Colorado mountain towns, and they offer just as much fun as a big resort – only without the steep prices and pretentious attitudes. You can find room rates under $100 a night, so that means you can afford to get out and enjoy yourself at one of dozens of renowned local restaurants.
And of course no visit to Sunlight is complete without a visit to our local hot springs. The Roaring Fork Valley could easily be called the "Hot Springs Capital of the World." Take your pick of experiencing three amazing hot springs!
1.) Glenwood Hot Springs - the largest natural hot springs pool in the World.
2.) Iron Mountain Hot Springs - 16 individual natural mineral hot springs pools.
3.) Avalanche Ranch Hot Springs - featuring three hot springs pools nestled in the Crystal River Valley.
