  • Not a great snow year (this was true for all the Colorado resorts) but the mountain was nicely groomed given the conditions. Staff was friendly and you could hop right on the lift without a wait so yo...  more »
  • My husband grew up skiing here and it is exactly the same as when he went there in the 80's. No lift lines. All of the staff was super friendly, especially the ski patrol hut at the top of the mountai...  more »
  • I love skiing at Sunlight. They have three lifts that move at a modest pace, but the skiing is worth it; they have a variety of great runs for beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert. The food in ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • We just got back from our snow mobile tour! We had a blast! Thank you Ty! Hands down the best part of our visit!!!!
