Sunrise Ski Resort and the White Mountains

Dori Wittrig December 14, 2021

Just a few hours northeast of Fountain Hills is the pristine forested wonderland of the White Mountains. Sunrise Park Resort is one of the best places in the state for winter activities. Even if you’re not into skiing and snowboarding, Sunrise and the surrounding area have something for everybody to enjoy.
Sunrise Park Resort is situated between three peaks of the White Mountains: Sunrise Peak, Apache Peak, and Cyclone Circle. The base of the park is at 9,200 feet, with the peaks reaching up to 11,000 feet. At these elevations, there is often snow at Sunrise over half the year. This contributes to it being a perfect location for a winter sports resort.

A series of ski lifts take visitors to slopes ranging in difficulty from Green to Double-Black Diamond. If you’ve never tried skiing and want to learn, lessons are offered every day at the resort. The resort also offers gear rentals.
The nearest town to the resort is Greer, a place famous in Arizona for its winter lodgings, restaurants, and amenities. It’s not uncommon for people to stay in Greer’s luxurious cabins before heading out to Sunrise for a day of fun.
30 minutes to the west of the Sunrise Resort is the Hon-Dah Casino. The casino features over 128 luxury rooms, live entertainment, gambling, and a great restaurant.
This year’s first snow fell at Sunrise on September 30th, and the winter season began on December 3rd. You can buy season passes, lift passes, and more at sunrise.ski.
