From downtown Glenwood Springs, Sunlight Mountain Resort is just a fifteen-minute drive, or visitors can hop on Sunlight’s shuttle bus which makes stops at many Ski Swim Stay lodges and drops guests at the base of the mountain. From there it’s easy to explore the 470 acres of terrain at Sunlight. Skiers and riders of all abilities will find what they’re looking for whether it’s green cruiser runs, intermediate bumps or black diamond steeps. Riders can show off for friends and the crowds in the half-pipe visible from the lodge deck. Sunlight’s grill and Last Turn Bar keep guests fueled and warm.
As the day winds down head to the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, the world’s largest outdoor mineral hot springs pool for après ski relaxation. Open year-round until 10 p.m., the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool is especially enchanting on cold winter evenings when clouds of steam linger above the surface of the water. Two pools offer different experiences for visitors. The larger, bath-tub temperature pool is a favorite for kids, lap swimmers, and those interested in showing off their cannon balls in the deep end. The smaller Therapy Pool, kept at temperatures ranging from 102 -104 degrees F., is a splash-free haven for those seeking to unwind or soak sore muscles.
At the end of the evening head back to the hotel or lodge for a comfortable, restful night’s sleep. Ten unique properties participate in Glenwood’s Ski Swim Stay package, allowing guests to choose from a variety of overnight experiences including historic downtown hotels, cozy cabins, convenient slope-side or poolside lodges, charming bed and breakfasts, and classic motor-lodge accommodations.
