Sunlight Mountain Resort on Friday hosted its 38th annual Skier Appreciation Day. Offering significantly discounted $25 lift tickets, the Glenwood Springs resort allocated the proceeds to United Way Battlement to the Bells.

Accompanying this annual philanthropic event was a Back to the Future-themed costume contest. It was perhaps the first time in Sunlight’s history that so many Doc Browns, Marty McFlys and DeLoreans filled the base lodge deck.
