Sunlight Ski Resort

Tucked away at the northern end of the Elk Mountain Range between Aspen/Snowmass and Glenwood Springs, Sunlight Mountain Resort is an ideal family-oriented destination for the budget traveler. Picturesque and low key, Sunlight offers 67 trails covering 470 acres of terrain. Guests enjoy a wide variety of options from green cruisers to black diamonds, including one of the steepest and one of the longest runs in the state. Its summit on Compass Mountain in the White River National Forest provides breathtaking views of the majestic Mount Sopris. The convenient base village offers guests amenities such as a restaurant, lounge, rental and retail shop, ski school, children's center and snowmobile tours. Off-mountain, guests can choose from an assortment of activities including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and more.

Glenwood Springs Ski Vacation

Beyond its reasonable lift ticket prices, it's the affordable lodging in nearby Glenwood Springs that makes Sunlight such a great alternative to the higher priced, big name resorts. Located at the confluence of the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers, the historic resort town of Glenwood Springs is the perfect family destination and offers an array of activities and sites to see when not on the slopes. The town is best known for—and actually named after—the largest mineral hot springs pool in the world: the Glenwood Hot Springs. The town is also the home of the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and abuts beautiful Glenwood Canyon. It offers more than 60 lodging properties ranging from historic hotels, bed and breakfasts and dude ranches, to campgrounds, hotels and motels, many of which are within walking distance to the boutique shops, restaurants and bars of downtown.
