  • As a Glenwood Springs native, I grew up skiing on Sunlight since after high school, it was one of the few ski resorts you could buy a Season Pass that wouldn't cost a mortgage like Snowmass or Ajax (A...  read more »
  • We drove up to see the resort after having skiied there many times over the years. Looks beautiful as always,and we loved being able to have all runs come to one central location. Great for kids & fam...  read more »
  • We stayed at Sunlight Lodge B&B in mid-July & had a wonderful experience! It's a work in progress, and still a bit rough around a few edges - but the warmth & friendliness of Inkeeper Jason, chef Tim,...  read more »
  • Fun little resort! We learned to ski here and it was perfect. I would love to go back for snowboarding to see how it compares. Great for a weekend getaway.
  • Very family friendly resort. Staff and instructors were very friendly and patient. Good for beginners or first timers but slopes are a bit steeper than expected for beginners and first timers. Make sure you get a lesson and you should be fine. Has many runs for more advanced boarders and skiers as well. Food at lodge is inexpensive. Rental process is pretty straightforward, just make sure you get the right boot fit. And the earlier you get there the better, it can get busy.
  • Great locals hideout for a quick easy ski/snowboard get away. Very family oriented with group and private lessons available to all ages. With a rental shop on the mountain and in town they make it convenient for those who forgot there equipment or maybe want to try something new. There is even a shop for those of us that have broken our goggles, want a new pair or maybe we just ran out of sun screen. On top of all this there is even a bar and grill for an experience that will keep you from having to leave the mountain for those missing items so that you can get the most out of your day. And as if that weren't enough there are two lodging opportunities near by so that you can head up in the hills for the weekend and not have to come down at all to get the most out of your relaxation.
  • It is a hidden gem. Small scale and affordable, Sunlight offers a great variety of terrain for both ski and boarding. On 12/29/15 it was one the busiest days but we still managed to find untracked powder! Bummer that the terrain park was not ready yet as the boarders need their place to shred from the skiers. Friendly staff make it a good time.
  • I can't say enough about Sunlight. Some of the best trees on the western slope, great all around terrain, and it's always quiet. The staff here is amazing. From the ticket window to the lifties to the kitchen staff, you won't find a more friendly bunch on any mountain in Colorado. They don't have any high speed lifts but it's really not that bad and because of that it definitely keeps the crowds down. It's far from your typical "ski resort". Sunlight has your hometown mountain feel and is as comfortable as your favorite dive bar with tons of "regulars". I love this place, every time I'm back home I opt for Sunlight over mountains like Copper, Breck, or Aspen. The price is right too which doesn't hurt.
