How is Sunlight?

Thinking of taking a trip to sunlight. Is it worth it on a powder day. The trail map shows all sorts of expert terrain. Is this for real? Good steeps + trees?

i live 4 miles from sunlight. It is a nice, small area. The terrain is good and it has some nice tree skiing. What it lacks in size it makes up for in lack of crowds. On a weekday it is empty.

It is worth it on a powder day. Its a great value.

However, on a 16+ inch powder day it is also worth the drive to highlands to hike the bowl. It doesn't get much better than the Highlands Bowl.

I second all the above.

Thanks for the beta. I opted for wolfie. It's delicious. Many worthwhile 20 minute hikes. Shoutout to the Foothills lodge in South Fork. Cheap, comforable, walking distance from bar.
