There's a bit of a myth about Sunlight - it's stuck "out there" and is hard to access. Not true. Sunlight is only an hour away from the Eagle-Vail Airport, 45 minutes from the airport in Aspen, and of course there's the airport in Glenwood Springs, a mere 15 minutes away. So getting to Sunlight isn't a problem. Once there you'll find a compact mountain layout with a respectable 2010 foot vertical drop. A triple, two doubles, and two surface lifts let you explore 470 acres of diverse terrain, including some might steep stuff. Sunlight gets 250" of snow each year, but snowmaking protects the lower lift trails from the midway point to the base.
