Full review

I consider Sunlight Mountain my "home" mountain. I learned to snowboard there over 10 years ago&t I'm happy to say the resort is just how it was then! A great resort for families, varied terrain and truly a locals kind of place. I heard from a friend that the resort has been sold and they will be developing a base village next year. So, if you're looking for a home-town locals Colorado Ski area like you recall from the "good 'ol days" you'd better get going this season to Sunlight. You'll be glad you did.
