About Sunlight Mountain Resort

Located in Glenwood Springs, CO, Sunlight Mountain offers up a good mix of terrain at an affordable price. The summit has impeccable views of Mount Sopris and the Elk Mountain Range

The mountain has plenty of family friendly terrain, as well as some expert terrain. Sunlight's ski area covers 470 acres and has a surprising 2000 feet of vertical. All trails converge back at the base.

Sunlight has one of the steepest runs in the state on its East Ridge. It's named The Heathen and has a pitch 52 degrees.

On a powder day, the tree skiing is great at Sunlight. Covered in aspen trees, and untracked days after a storm, Upper, Gibson and Sundown Glades offer some of the best tree skiing around.
