Sunrise Park Resort, Greer, Arizona – With fresh snow on the ground, Sunrise Park Resort celebrates its 50th Anniversary, opening its ski season on Friday, December 18th, 2020. Sunrise Park Resort hours begin at 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. daily. Through this soft opening, skiers will have access up to Midway on Sunrise mountain while snow making continues. All COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the White Mountain Apache Tribe’s (WMAT) Emergency Operation Center’s (EOC) will be enforced. Everyone must wear a face mask, practice social distancing, and utilize their vehicles for preparing to ski since the locker rooms will remain closed. Sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the property. In adherence to the EOC’s guidelines, only one point of entry will be available located by the “One Pass” booth and no food services are available. Those services may be available as COVID-19 guidelines are updated.

This winter, Sunrise is going touch-free and all season passes, day tickets, lessons, and rentals must be purchased in advance entirely online at, using the One Pass system. Safe social distancing for guests will be in place throughout Sunrise Park Resort in order to assure that team members as well as guests are given the best experiences in the safest environment possible. With safety in mind, there will be limited access to buildings. The ski rental shop will be limited to 5 patrons at a time. A social distancing maze will be set up for all locations including the lifts. Lifts will have social distancing rules in place based on single pass skiers, groups, or families skiing together.

The Sunrise Park Resort Hotel will be closed for the 2020/2021 season due to repair work. Updates on the hotel’s repair status will be provided as new details become available.
