Sunlight Mountain Resort
Sunlight Mountain Resort prides itself on having no parking fees, no high speed lifts and no Bavarian restaurants, no furs, no gondolas, no celebrities... just more runs, a good terrain park, numerous upgrades to their lodge and ski shop and great skiing for families and snowriders with some of the most incredible views in all of Colorado: the majesty of Mount Sopris and the surrounding Elk Mountains. Sunlight Mountain Resort also offers some great cross country skiing over an extensive trail network around the mountain.
Moe's Southwest Grill of Glenwood Springs has become the sponsor of Sunlight's three terrain parks, meaning: new rails, fun boxes and jumps galore, including allowance for inverted aerials (although they still aren't highly recommended).
Sunlight Mountain Resort is located 10 miles south of Glenwood Springs, 30 miles northwest of Aspen. In both cities you'll find all kinds of restaurants, lounges, entertainment, apres-ski and hotels, motels, condos, resort rooms and vacation home rentals.
