Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Responsibility Code?2020-12-29T22:40:29-07:00

Skiing and snowboarding can be enjoyed in many ways. At areas, you may see people using alpine skis, snowboards, telemark skis, cross country skis, and other specialized equipment, such as that used by people with disabilities. Regardless of how you decide to enjoy the slopes, always show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements of risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below, and share with other skiers and riders the responsibility for a great skiing experience.

  • Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
  • People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
  • You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above.
  • Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
  • Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
  • Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
  • Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.

Know the code. It’s your responsibility.

*Note: This is a partial list. Be safety conscious.

The National Ski Areas Association has put together a “Know the Code” video; view it below.

Will Apache Peak and Cyclone Circle be open?2023-12-14T17:53:15-07:00

Yes! (as snow levels allow) Apache peak will be open this season with Geronimo (Lift 5) servicing the mountain. Cyclone Circle will be open with access via the Cyclone Cord on Denny’s Way on Thursdays through Sundays as snow levels allow. See the snow report below for the most current lift and trail status:

Can I bring my own Ski Bike?2022-11-27T08:02:56-07:00

Yes, you can ride your own ski bike if you meet the following two requirements:

  1. Ski bike riders visiting Sunrise require a safety certification by the ski bike staff prior to loading the lifts, regardless of their experience or personal equipment to ensure the safety of themselves and other visitors.
  2. Your bike has to be inspected by the ski bike staff to ensure it has the proper safety features.

Ski Bikes are only allowed on Cyclone Circle and Apache Peak.

Do you offer Ski Bike lessons?2022-11-27T08:04:06-07:00

Yes! We have Ski Biking lessons on Saturdays and Sundays at Cyclone Base once that mountain opens this season. Ski Bike lessons are available for ages 13+. More information about ski bike lessons is available below:

What is Ski Biking?2022-11-27T08:04:54-07:00

Ski Biking (also known as Skibobbing) is a bicycle-like frame with skis instead of wheels. Ski Bike rentals and lessons are available at the base of Cyclone Circle. First-time ski bike riders at Sunrise Park Resort require a safety certification by the ski bike staff prior to loading the lifts, regardless of their experience or personal equipment to ensure the safety of themselves and other visitors.

Do you offer childcare?2022-11-28T13:04:57-07:00

No, we will not be offering childcare this season. Camp Sunrise will offer Youth group ski lessons for ages 7-12 this season. More information about those lessons is available below:

 

Are drones allowed at Sunrise?2021-05-23T19:08:45-07:00

No. For the safety of you and other skiers, unauthorized use of drones and all other small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) at SPR is strictly prohibited. Any drone use must be authorized by the Sunrise Park Resort management prior to use.

Is tubing and sledding offered?2023-03-17T19:58:11-07:00

The Tubing Hill is back! Sunrise does not offer on-site sledding, but we have a tubing hill at the base of Sunrise mountain with fun for everyone 6 and up. Hours and tickets are available at the link below:

What do you do with moguls in the summer? Are they manmade?2020-12-29T22:40:16-07:00
Moguls are formed by skiers on virtually all ski trails that are not mechanically flattened with grooming equipment. They organize spontaneously as skiers move along a ski run, kicking up snow behind them as they turn. The kicked-up snow forms into piles, which eventually turn into moguls.

 

Check out this time lapse video of how moguls actually move uphill over time!
Does it have to be less than 32 degrees for the roads to ice?2020-12-29T22:39:29-07:00

No. Temperature readings below 36°F should alert you to the possibility of road icing. Read more about Icy Road Conditions.

I’ve never been skiing / snowboarding. What should I wear?2021-11-03T15:28:31-07:00
Because of changing weather conditions, and depending upon your level of activity, layering clothes is recommended. Be aware that MORE is not necessarily better, and in many cases wearing too much clothing can be physically limiting. Follow these guidelines:

 

  1. Start with a comfortable, breatheable base layer like thermal underwear, merino wool, etc.
  2. Wear only one thin pair of socks (merino wool is optimal since it wicks moisture away from your feet and is very warm). This is important! Wearing thick, bulky socks or multiple pairs of socks restricts circulation, creates pressure points and does not allow your feet to breathe.
  3. If it is especially cold, you can add a sweater or fleece over your base layer. Wear something that is easy to shed if the sun comes out and warms things up.
  4. Waterproof outerwear (pants & jackets), especially for beginners who tend to fall a lot. Jeans and sweatpants get wet quickly in snow and will ice up. Skiing or snowboarding is a lot more fun when you are warm and dry!
  5. Waterproof gloves or mittens will keep your fingers toasty warm. Knit gloves will get wet after falling only a couple of times, not so fun. Be sure your children have waterproof gloves/mittens as well.
  6. Goggles or UV protective sunglasses/eyewear. Snow is a natural reflector of sunlight. Without UV protection your eyes (cornea) can get a “sunburn” which feels scratchy and uncomfortable. Like skin, repeated cornea burns can cause long term damage. So take care of your eyes – wear sunglasses!
  7. Don’t forget a warm beanie, hat or helmet to keep your head warm! There’s a lot to be said about having a warm head when it’s snowing outside, so be prepared and bring your helmet, hat or beanie!
Do you offer discounts for groups?2022-12-14T19:24:51-07:00

Yes! Please fill out the form on the page below to request a quote for your group event at Sunrise:

How old does my child have to be for ski/snowboard lessons?2022-11-28T09:04:27-07:00

We offer group lessons or private lessons for children 7 years and up. Private lessons are available for ages 4 years and up. Ski Bike lessons are available for ages 13+. More information about lessons is available below:

You can book lessons at the link below. We have limited lessons daily and prices increase if you book less than 72 hours in advance, so be sure to book in advance for the best deal.

What are your hours?2023-12-14T17:50:55-07:00

My spouse has never been skiing/snowboarding. Should I teach them?2020-12-29T22:41:34-07:00
Many couples, families and friends prefer to leave the lessons to the pros.

 

Our winter sports staff receives continuous training and certifications, keeping up with the most current equipment and PSAI | AASI lesson standards. There is a progression to teaching a new student on the snow that builds gradually upon the most basic skills.

 

As students grasp the concepts needed to master the beginner hill, many other factors come into play that are determined by movement analysis – subtleties your pro instructor has been trained to detect that most novice skiers and snowboarders are unaware of.

 

And finally, our pros take the safety of our guests seriously, integrating the Skier | Snowboarder Responsibility Code into the lesson. Safety + Fun = Learning!
Do you have lockers?2023-12-14T17:55:59-07:00

Cyclone Circle will be open for the 2023/24 season! The new Cyclone Cord, a “Swiss Cord” style surface lift, was installed last season. Cyclone access will be available Thursday – Sunday as snow levels allow. The old Cyclone chairlift (Lift VI) was deemed unrepairable a few years ago and the lift cable has been removed.
