The Indy Pass announced today that Sunlight Mountain Resort, CO, would join as a partner resort for the remainder of the 21-22 season and 2022-23 with no blackout days. Sunlight becomes the first in Colorado to join the fast-growing coalition. It’s located in the heart of Colorado ski country 10 miles south of Glenwood Springs in between Vail and Aspen. Featuring breathtaking views of Mt. Sopris and the Elk Mountain Range, Sunlight boasts 2010 vertical feet with a summit elevation of 9995, 72 runs, and three lifts that access a wide variety of terrain including one of Colorado’s steepest lift-served runs.

“The entire team here at Sunlight is excited to join the Indy Pass family of independent ski areas and we can’t wait for more skiers and riders to come and enjoy a two-day taste test. We’re confident they will enjoy spreading out on our 730 acres served up the old school Rocky Mountain way.”

– Sunlight’s Troy Hawks.

“Adding Sunlight is a huge win for Indy Passholders. Colorado is North America’s ground zero for skiing and snowboarding and now we have access to one of the most cherished indie mountains remaining in that great state. The mountain skis much bigger than it looks on paper and the base operation is as authentic and laid back as anything you’ll find in the West.”

– Indy Pass founder Doug Fish

The Indy Pass now offers 82 resorts worldwide.
