PHOTOS: 2021-22 opening day at Sunlight Mountain Resort

Sunlight Mountain Resort opened the Tercero Lift on Wednesday morning after a delayed start to the season due to a lack of early snow. Skiers and boarders were welcomed by a layer of fresh snow after an overnight/early morning snow storm left multiple inches in the valley.
