GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– Sunlight Mountain Resort announced the return of its $700 lift ticket. It is expected to be the highest priced one-day lift ticket in the country, if not the entire ski industry.

There’s a catch, Troy Hawks, director of marketing and sales says about the promotion.


The Sunny 700 lift ticket includes a pair of limited edition Meier skis, in addition to skiing and snowboarding for an entire day at Sunlight and a day pass to either Glenwood Hot Springs or Iron Mountain Hot Springs.

“There is a lot of folks who aren’t aware that we’re here and then maybe been grown up in Colorado it is a challenge creative ways to get our messaging out,” said Hawks.

“It worked last year,” he writes. “We received a tremendous amount of attention and inquiries about the Sunny 700 lift ticket and sold a surprisingly high number of tickets.
