PHOTOS: Opening day for Sunlight Mountain Resort’s 54th season

Sunlight Mountain Resort opened for its 54th season on Friday, Dec. 11 after receiving roughly 3 inches of snow overnight, and more Friday and Saturday.

Though conditions only allowed for the opening of the lower Tercero lift, roughly 100 skiers and riders came out for first chair to have the first runs of the season down Midway.

Sunlight’s Midway run is now open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. serving about 500 vertical feet with about an 8-12 inch base.
