Glenwood Springs is a river town that just sleeps through the Winter, isn’t it? Wrong!! Glenwood Springs is actually one of the only true 4 season mountain towns that Colorado has to offer. Although we have become famous because of our world class rivers for rafting and fishing along with our hot springs mineral pools for soaking, Glenwood Springs is also a fantastic ski location in the Winter. On a very snowy day today I thought it would be appropriate to share how great the skiing can be in Glenwood Springs.
Ski Sunlight (http://sunlightmtn.com/) is our local mountain in Glenwood Springs and it offers historic, small town charm with the steepest ski slope (52 degrees) in Colorado! Sunlight gives you a full day of skiing for about half the cost of the mega resorts like nearby Vail and Aspen. You’ll park for free, walk to the lifts, and never stand in line. Without the big crowds, the powder lasts for days at Sunlight. All 67 trails lead right back to the lodge where you can stow your gear, meet your family and friends, and get something hot and delicious at the grill. No matter the age or ability anyone who spends some time skiing at Sunlight is surely not to be disappointed.
It’s the way skiing should be and the way many that came before us remember skiing, “to be”. You will be very happy if you decide to make a day trip or weekend trip to Ski Sunlight. In addition to the ski mountain, downtown Glenwood Springs offers a variety of boutique shops, hot springs and family activities for you to enjoy after a day on the slopes. If you love it so much you decide to relocate here, I would be honored to show you the local real estate market that Glenwood Springs has to offer. I hope to hear from you soon!
