After 2 days @ Vail and 1 at the Beav, Sun Light was just what I was looking for. Great snow, friendly people and fun skiing. It was 3 days after it last snowed and we found untracked powder right on the side of groomed trails. However it is the steep runs in the trees that will bring me back to Sun Light.
Old double chairs and excellent tree skiing will put a smile on any skier from Smuggs, Jay Peak or Mad River.

Sunlight Mountain Resort is a unique winter playground that is affordable and family oriented. Sunlight has hundreds of acres for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. Sunlight’s summit on Compass Mountain in the White River National Forest, overlooks majestic Mount Sopris and the awe inspiring Elk Mountain Range. Amenities include a restaurant, lounge, rental and retail shop, ski school, childrens center, and snowmobile tours.
Sunlight (Sunlight Mountain Resort) features 67 named trails covering over 470 acres. In addition to miles of cruising intermediate terrain, Sunlight’s East Ridge has one of the steeper runs in the state. Aptly named, The Heathen falls beneath your feet at a breathtaking 52 degrees. Sunlight is home to one of the longest trails in ski country, Ute, a beginner slope that winds more than 2 miles from summit to base. Sunlight (Sunlight Mountain Resort) also hosts some of the best tree skiing in Colorado with many aspen groves untracked days after snowfall. All trails converge at the base lodge, so friends and family can always keep track of each other.
