Sunlight Mountain Resort
Mountain Stats

Sunlight's intimate, unpretentious atmosphere can be attributed to its small-town roots. Named after a once-thriving coal mining town in the area that disappeared in the early 1900s. With its summit situated on Compass Mountain, Sunlight offers beautiful vistas of majestic Mount Sopris and the surrounding Elk Mountain Range, as well as hundreds of acres of mild greens, intermediate slopes and black diamond extremes to satisfy all levels of abilities. The affordability and laid back attitude make Sunlight a favorite for all who visit.

This year is the 12th anniversary of the Extreme Area.

Sunlight Mountain Resort is nestled 10 miles south of Glenwood Springs and 30 miles northwest of Aspen in the heart of the White River National Forest.
