Winter Wonderland in the Mountains
Sunlight Mountain Resort, located in the 2.3 million acre White River National Forest, is the place to ski and ride. Our popular Ski and Stay package combines Glenwood’s favorites – lift tickets and lodging at great discounts. With 470 acres, 2000 vertical feet, and 67 trails for families to thrill-seekers, Sunlight Mountain Resort is Glenwood Springs’ best kept secret, just fifteen minutes from town.
Rocky Mountain Fun in the Sun
The fun doesn’t stop when the snow does. After soaking in the famous hot springs, how about an afternoon of hiking through a peaceful forest of Aspen trees? Or maybe you’d prefer to coast through the wooded hills on a mountain bike – there are tons of trail options. Are you a fisherman? The Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers combine to provide you with 26 miles of gold medal water (out of 9,000 total miles of Colorado streams, only 168 achieve this distinction), set against some of the most beautiful canyon and mountain backdrops in the country. If thrill-seeking is more your style, the big shoulders of the Colorado River provide enough whitewater to make you ‘white-knuckled,’ and the Glenwood Canyon has long been renowned for its sixteen miles of beauty. Golf, camping, 16 miles of walking and cycling paths, and local festivals – like Strawberry Days (Glenwood’s favorite for over 100 years) – are all part of the valley’s fun in the sun.
