I was once again reminded of how lucky we are to live in Glenwood Springs when I attended Sunlight Mountain’s Skier Appreciation Day to kick off 2017. It is incredible how our community comes together for this event each year that provides support to The United Way of Garfield County. All day long people ski, eat, drink, party, listen to live music and create memories. This year there was a contest for best dressed 1960’s attire.
Sunlight Mountain is a small ski area compared to most in Colorado. What Sunlight lacks in acreage and amenities is surely made up in character and charm. Sunlight is a skiing gem located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and it offers a variety of terrain for all types of skiers.
Brettelberg Condominiums are located on site but other than that very little residential real estate is located at the mountain. This is unusual considering most ski areas in Colorado are now peppered with residential real estate and you find houses located at almost all base areas. To get to Sunlight Mountain, you travel the 4 Mile Road corridor about 20 minutes from Glenwood Springs to reach the ski area and all along that drive there is residential real estate the entire way. Many people consider “living up 4 Mile” to be the most desirable location within our community. It sure is beautiful.
I took some photos and a video for you to enjoy and next year we hope to see you there too!
