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 Fridays through Sundays as snow levels allow. See the snow report below for the most current lift and trail status:
Yes, you can ride your own ski bike if you meet the following two requirements:
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
No. Temperature readings below 36°F should alert you to the possibility of road icing. Read more about Icy Road Conditions.
- Start with a comfortable, breatheable base layer like thermal underwear, merino wool, etc.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
