Why Sunlight Mountain Resort in Glenwood Springs is super hot this season!
Glenwood Springs is already famous for thermal waters. Here’s why adding Sunlight Mountain Resort to your itinerary makes the perfect winter hot springs vacation.
1) There’s a party
There’s a groovy 1966 vibe right now because Sunlight Mountain Resort is celebrating its 50th birthday! It’s not a party without beer so Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company crafted a special Sunlight birthday brew modeled after a German Helles Lager. Special events are scheduled throughout the season.
2) Après ski: relax in a hot springs
Rejuvenate those ski-weary legs in one of three hot springs facilities. Known as the world’s largest mineral hot springs pool, Glenwood Hot Springs was established in 1888 and still attracts visitors from all over the globe. The newest attraction is Iron Mountain Hot Springs, with sixteen separate soaking pools varying in temperature from 99 to 108 degrees. If you need a little detoxification, try an underground steam at the Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves to work up a good sweat.
3) Spend less cash
Sunlight gets the same snow as Aspen and Vail. But adult lift tickets at Sunlight are only $63, almost one-third the price of its glitzy neighbors. Adding a hot springs to the mix is an even better deal. Check out the ever-popular Ski Swim Stay package starting at $99/night or the $199 Slope and Soak 4-Pack (four lift tickets and four post-powder soaks).
Sunlight Mountain Resort is exceptionally diverse. The terrain features everything from cruisers to heart-stopping steeps. Sunlight Mountain’s Extreme challenges all experts. With a pitch of 52 degrees, the Heathen is one of the steepest trails in the state. Sunlight is also home to one of the state's longest trails, Ute, a cruising beginner slope which winds more than 2.5 miles from the summit to the base.
