The snowcapped hills of Sunburst Ski Area are crisscrossed with the ghostly tracks of skiers and snowboarders, giving way to sundry runs, terrain parks, and steep tubing lanes for winter athletes of all skill levels. Three terrain parks challenge trick-minded snowboarders with a series of rails, tables, and ramps, and skiers tackle nine runs ranging in difficulty from gentle bunny hills to menacing double-black-diamond inclines, which also whisper taunts about your homemade snowboard. Patrons can carve through the fresh powder watching the sunset into the evening, kicking up fluff twinkling underneath the hill’s complete spotlight system. On the tubing hill, riders plunk into inflatable snow-donuts, careening down the 12 chutes measuring 900 feet long, encompassing a 10-story descent. Riders can reach speeds of more than 40 miles per hour, but will be issued traffic citations for failing to use turn signals.
Though Sunburst Ski Area sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Sunburst Ski Area
Originally a family farm before two families of ski enthusiasts purchased the land in 1961, Sunburst Ski Area now encompasses 13 sundry ski runs as well as terrain parks and steep tubing lanes for winter athletes of all skill levels. Skiers and boarders plummet down nine runs that range from rolling bunny hills to harrowing double-black-diamond steeps. Flashy alpinists can trick out at the terrain parks, which boast a series of rails, ramps, and tables for mid-grind picnic lunches. Additionally, patrons can carve through the fresh powder after dark, as a full spotlight system keeps the slopes open until 9 p.m. from Monday–Thursday and 10 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. On the tubing hill, riders seated in inflatable tubes zoom, bob, and spin down 12 chutes measuring 900 feet long and spanning a 10-story descent. The tubes can reach speeds of more than 40 miles per hour, which is just fast enough to outpace the hungry snowmen that think each one is a gigantic donut.
