Sunrise Ski Resort

Sunrise may be a ski resort, but it also has lots of activities in the summer as well.  I have been to Sunrise a couple of times with friends to try my hand at skiing.  It didn't go as well as I hoped.  Apparently, I am not built for skiing, but did enjoy the lodge and brewskies.  It is a popular place for many Zonies (Arizona natives) and visitors to ski.  But, did you know there are summer activities as well?

How about checking out the Scenic Lift Rides?  You hop on a ski lift seat and soar to an elevation of 10,700 feet above the Blue Spruce trees.  The views are breathtaking on the way up and at the top.  From the top of the Sunrise Peak, you have views of the White Mountains in all directions.  The Eagles Nest Cafe is at the top for you to grab a bite to eat or have a cool beverage.  The lift is opened Thursday-Monday from 10am to 4pm.  It was $18 for my trip up the mountain and totally worth every penny.

Other things to do at Sunrise in the summer are zip line tours, downhill mountain biking, nature hikes, tubing slide, airbag jump, archery course, disc golf, Sunrise Lake, culinary workshops, horseback tours, and fly fishing clinics.  The Sunrise Park Resort is a fun place to go in the winter and summer too.
