There is so much to smile about at Sunlight Mountain Resort. That’s not just our motto, that’s the goal we set throughout our entire organization, not only including our ski area operations, but also Sunlight Ski & Bike Shop, and Sunlight Snowmobile Tours.

The experience we provide is built around smiles. From the lifts to the lodge and beyond, we are dedicated to taking all the measures we can to ensure we leave our guests with something to smile about. We call it the Sunlight Smile Guarantee TM

Tell Only Your Best Friends

Sunlight is located in the central Colorado Rocky Mountains, 10 miles south of Glenwood Springs. Sunlight offers you skiing like it used to be. We have three lifts that service 72 runs and 730 skiable acres. All trails lead right back to the base lodge where you can find affordable hot snacks and beverages.



With Sunlight's award-winning Ski, Swim, and Stay, kids 12 and under ski FREE and everyone can enjoy a rejuenating soak in the World's largest natural mineral hot springs. Find a list of our hotel partners and reserve your Ski, Swim, Stay!  

Socially-Distant by Nature

Enjoy 730 acres of old school. At Sunlight, you park for free within walking distance of our lifts. Here you'll have no problem social-distancing yourself from the pack.



If you could take ski or snowboard lessons anywhere, Sunlight is one of the best choices you can make. The reasons are many.

For starters, more than 75% of Sunlight’s terrain is ideally suited for those new to the sport. This means you’ll spend more time learning new skills and less time fighting (and fearing) the crowds.

Sunlight instructors are seasoned professionals with many years of experience, most with professional certifications. And when it comes to affordability, you’d be hard-pressed to find better value. Shop our selection of lesson options and reserves yours today! 


Smile Guarantee

Rest easy knowing your lift tickets and season passes are covered under the Smile Guarantee. If Sunlight is closed on the day of your planned visit, you can still use your lift tickets anytime during the season.

Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion.

Sunlight Mountain Resort is an equal opportunity employer. We welcome all skiers, snowboarders, snow enthusiasts and lodge-loving non-snow enthusiasts alike. We educate and train our staff on the topics of diversity, equality, and inclusion.


Environmental Sustainability

Our investments in new snowmaking heads allows us to make more snow using less water and energy. Environmental sustainability is a crucial component of the Sunlight Smile Guarantee.

Community Philanthropy

Since 1989, Skier Appreication Day has been Sunlight's signature community giving event raising nearly a half million dollars for our local United Way Battlement to the Bells.
