Free Press Insider’s Tip: Don’t miss the historic Hotel Denver if you need a place to crash. During your stay, dine downstairs at the hotel’s Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company. A burger and local brew is the perfect combo!

At Sunlight Mountain Resort in Glenwood Springs, you’ll park for free, walk to the lifts, and rarely stand in line.

Sunlight also offers more than 680 acres of skiable terrain, and every one of its 67 trails leads back to the lodge. The East Ridge is a must-do if you like the steeps, or seek out powder stashes in Sunlight’s numerous aspen groves.

Because this small ski area is located just 12 miles south of Glenwood Springs, this is the only ski resort that can say it also hosts the world’s largest hot springs pool.

You’ll find plenty of affordable restaurants and hotels as well, many within an easy walk of Glenwood’s historic downtown.
