Sunrise Ski Resort is also known as Sunrise Park Resort as they are far more than just a place to ski. They are open year round giving many Arizona residents a place to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cool White Mountains, a beautiful place to enjoy some time away from the city. During the summer months you can enjoy rides on the ski lifts, fishing and boating at Sunrise Lake, mountain biking, hiking and horseback rides.

No matter how you choose to travel to this scenic ski lodge, or when you choose to visit, summer or winter, you will several choices for your sleeping accommodations. There is the Sunrise Park Lodge with 100 hundred rooms, two restaurants, a gift shop, an indoor pool and whirlpool along with a lounge and game room.

With 200 sites available there is sure to be a spot for your tent, camper or motor home. The campground is complete with port-a-jons, water, firepits and tables.

If you are planning a visit during the summer months don't forget your fishing poles. Sunrise lake has plenty of trout, Rainbow, Brook and Apache. You can fish from the shore or rent a boat, you can fly fish or bait fish, it's up to you.

If fishing bores you and you prefer mountain biking you will love this place. Bikes are available for rent at the lodge and the ski lifts are equipped with bike carriers. The lifts take you to the top of Sunrise Mountain and then you are on your own.

My favorite memories of Sunrise Ski Resort involved skiing down the slopes with two of my daughters after they had been to a half day lesson. It was their first time skiing and they took to it like champs. I also remember a wonderful evening of night skiing. The mountain was simply amazing after dark, with plenty of light to see the trail, but not much else.

If night skiing interests you plan to be there next Jan. 16, Feb. 13 or Feb. 27. Those are the night skiing dates.

Whether you ski at night or during the day, or both, Sunrise Ski Resort is a pleasant experience for the entire family.
