Skiing & Snowboarding

What if the powder could last for days, and you had most runs all to yourself? What if you never had to stand in line, or pay for slope-side parking? What if the cost of a full day of skiing was less than lunch at the fancy resorts? These are some of our favorite things about Sunlight, and we think you’ll agree that this is what you’ve been missing.

Sunlight features 67 named trails covering over 680 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.

There's so many ways to enjoy Sunlight Mountain Resort! With an average of 250 inches of snow a year, and more than 300 days of sunshine, Sunlight is a snow-lovers paradise. Come here to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, cross-country ski, snowmobile, or just to make snow angels, Sunlight is an affordable winter paradise for families. Find your winter fun, it's time to shine!
