Skiing at Sunlight with Mt. Sopris in the background
Sunlight Mountain Resort is located in western Colorado, near the town of Glenwood Springs, and is an affordable alternative to nearby Vail and Aspen. Sunlight is a fun and quiet mountain with a western flavor and hundreds of acres of terrain for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. Playful dips and bumps are distinguishing features of many novice and intermediate trails. Sunlight Extreme is home to one of the steepest and craggiest trails in the state, plunging more than 50 degrees to Four Mile Creek below.

Sunlight Mountain also has over 10-miles of groomed cross-county track in the White River National Forest. Skiers can even take an overnight trip in a rustic backcountry cabin that is not too far out of the way. Cabin rentals are available via email request or by calling 800/445-7931. Lodging is available in nearby Glenwood Springs. Glenwood Springs is home to the world's largest Hot Springs Pool. Affordable Ski, Swim and Stay Packages are available.
