Which trails are open at Sunlight this weekend

On Thursday, Sunlight Mountain Resort’s communications director Sheila Barber upped the estimate for the amount of terrain that will be open on the season’s first day, Saturday.

Earlier in the week, resort officials estimated that 60 percent of the mountain would be open. But Barber said that’s been boosted to 75 percent.

“We have over three feet of snow up top and about 26 inches at midway,” Barber wrote in an e-mail on Thursday. “We received 1.5 inches with last night’s snowfall. Both Tercero and Primo lifts will be open. All cross-country trails are open and groomed.”

Barber also provided a list of trails that will be open.

For beginners, there’s Chicken Out, Columbine, Grizzly, Grizzly Road, Ivy’s Run, Loop Midway, Segundo Road, Ute and Ute Cutoff.

For intermediate skiers and boarders, the resort will open Beaujolais, Blue Catwalk, Blue Tango, Columbine, Crystal, Dawson, Dotsero, Joslin, Little Max, Parks, Peace Pipe, Rebel, Sun King, Sunburst, Sundance, Sundown and Whiteriver.

For advanced skiers, just one black diamond run will be open, the under-the-lift run for winter sports exhibitionists, Primo.

Sunlight will be open this weekend, Nov. 16-17, and next weekend, Nov. 23-24, and then open seven days a week starting Wednesday, Nov. 27. Early season lift tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for children 6-13 years old.
