New snow leads to excellent conditions

Sunlight Mountain Resort manager Tom Jankovsky said he had one of his best ski days in years last week.”It was close to an epic day,” he said.Jankovsky said it’s snowed at least 11 days already this month at the ski area near Glenwood Springs. Sunlight is now posting about 62 inches at the top and 54 inches at Midway.”We’ve received 41 inches of new snow in the past week,” Jankovsky said.Wednesday, he said he’d had “the best powder day since 1997. The conditions are fabulous, and the consumers are responding to that.”Sunlight is hosting the Bighorn Toyota Rail Jam series at 1 p.m. today. Contestants are judged on amplitude, style and difficulty of the trick.It costs $8 to register, and prizes will be awarded from Diversion Snowboard Shop. There’s hidden treasure on the mountain, a season pass for next year and $500 in cash. Go to the Sunlight Web site for clues. Judging from the clues already posted, aspen trees and the steep and deep could figure in the location.Contact Donna Gray: 945-8515, ext.
