Sunlight Mountain 2015 Ski Spree

Sunlight Mountain Ski Spree 2015The annual Sunlight Mountain Ski Spree Extravaganza happens this year from February 6-8. Ski Spree events take off throughout the weekend on the mountain and in downtown Glenwood. Highlights include ski and snowboard competitions, a chili cookoff and a fireworks show.

“Ski Spree celebrates the tremendous joy we have of living and playing in our beautiful state in the winter,” Tom Jankovsky, GM Sunlight Mountain

This year’s theme for the event is “Colorful Colorado” – guests and attendees are encouraged to get creative in bringing the theme to life! The annual chili cook-off is held at the Hotel Colorado this year at 5pm on 2/7. This highly competitive event brings foodies, superstar chefs and locals together to celebrate our Western roots. The evening of the 7th will be topped off with entertainment from the Missing Link Band and a fireworks show right above the historic hotel. Ski Spree admission bracelets are just $10 and can be purchased in advance at Sunlight Ski and Bike, ANB Bank and at the door at the Hotel Colorado on Feb. 7. Proceeds raised from the event benefit Sunlight’s learn-to-ski programs for children.

Feeling bold? Register for the chili cook-off and show your skills!
