Sunlight Mountain Ski Resort

Sunlight Mountain Ski Resort

This small ski area sits twenty minutes outside Glenwood Springs, and offers both downhill and Nordic skiing. The mountain is popular with locals who want a more low key experience than offered by the Aspen ski resorts, and those who like skiing but don’t want to break the bank. A season pass will only run you $350, and day tickets go for $48. Compare that to the $87 you’ll pay in Aspen, and you can see why some folks prefer Sunlight.

The mountain offers fun terrain, from easy cruisers to steep glades. In fact, one of the steepest runs in Colorado can be found here. The Heathen clocks in at a burly 52 degrees! In addition, the views across the valley to Mount Sopris and the rest of the Elk Range are spectacular. The terrain park features boxes, rails, kickers and more.

In addition to all the downhill fun, the cross country skiing area in Babbish Gulch offers 29 kilometers of groomed trails in a beautiful high valley. These trails are free for anyone to use, just bring your cross country skis or snowshoes and have at it!

Sunlight is also leading the way with environmental initiatives to reduce their impact on the surrounding area. These programs include employee transit, guest park and ride, vegetation management and others. For more information see www.sunlightmtn.com/the-mountain/sustainable-slopes.
