Direct from the website…Sunlight Mountain Resort is the affordable and family oriented year round Colorado resort. In the Winter, Sunlight has hundreds of acres for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. Sunlight’s summit on Compass Mountain in the White River National Forest, overlooks majestic Mount Sopris and the awe-inspiring Elk Mountain Range. Amenities include a restaurant, lounge, rental and retail shop, ski school, children’s center and snowmobile tours.
Sunlight features 67 named trails covering over 470 acres. In addition to miles of cruising intermediate terrain, Sunlight’s East Ridge has one of the steeper runs (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.
