Sunrise opens Sat. November 21st! We will be open on weekends (Fri – Sun) thereafter into early December before switching to 7 days a week.
It appears that all returning pass holders get a $20.00 discount except the old people. What gives?
Hi Michael, good question. Since senior passes are already offered at a great discount there is no additional discount for existing pass holders. The same is true for the college pass.
Do I have to buy the college pass is person?
Nope, you can buy it online here https://ssl3.connectintouch.com/wp.dll?Axis/SunrisePark just bring a copy of your transcript to the mountain your first time verifying your school schedule of 12+ credit hours.
Say the student is in a masters program (UofA) where 9 credits is considered full time, is that eligible as well?
Hi Josh, that sounds reasonable, just bring in your transcript or document showing that you’re in the full-time masters program.
On Saturday will the whole mountain be open or just midway and the beginners hill.
About 70% of Sunrise Peak will be open with 3 lifts running including the peak.
What runs will be open?
Hi Chris, all the runs on Sunrise Peak, some groomed, some not.
Sunday included i presume too? Even thoug , That doesn’t sound so bad since the high speed lift will be open too.
Are there big groups expected?
Hi Rob, both Sat & Sun lift tickets will be half price. Typically opening weekend gets a lot of excitement, but it’s hard to say exactly how many people will be here.
Are you guys open New Year’s Day??
Are you guy open on the Thanksgiving day?
Hi Kevin, as of now we won’t be open on Thanksgiving. Just the weekends in November (tentative open date of Sat. Nov. 21).
Will you open on Black Friday?
Planning to be open Fri, Sat, Sun of Thanksgiving weekend. Thanksgiving day is still undecided.
What is the price of a single day lift ticket for the upcoming season?
Hi Rose, we should have single day life ticket pricing for the 2015/2016 season available on our website next week.
Are you guys open on Christmas Day?
We are open Christmas day. Anticipating a Nov 21st opening day – just weekends until early Dec when we will switch to 7 days a week, expecting to close in April.
Are you open every weekend of November? Or not until the 21st?
Tentative open date is the 21st of Nov. There’s always a slight chance to open sooner if we continue to get snow. We will certainly make an announcement if we plan to open before the 21st.
Will you be open on Wednesday before Thanksgiving, 25th? My family was hoping to ski that day.
Hi Dawn, no we won’t just Fri, Sat, Sun on Thanksgiving weekend (Thanksgiving day is still undecided).
Hey will you guys please open early for me, I just want to squeeze in.
Ha, this Saturday! Can you wait until then :)
During the November weekends, what lifts and runs do you anticipate being open?
Hi Don, it all depends on how much snow we get. Expecting a good amount tomorrow. We will update the Snow Report page under Mountain Info with those details.
We are getting snow in Alpine and imagine you’ve been getting snow got the past two days!!! How much new snow have you gotten? We bought season passes. Do we need to wait until Sat to come in and get them or can we come in early? Thanks and we will see you soon!!!
Hi Theresa, we received 10+ inches at the top thus far. It’s suppose to continue snowing all day into the night. Our guest services office is open daily, come by later in the week and pick them up if you’d like.
With all the snow we’ve been getting, any chance you will open during the week before Thanksgiving? I have guests coming in from out of town but they have to leave right after Thanksgiving to get home.
Hi Joe, sorry just weekends (Fri-Sun) from Nov 21 – Dec 7.
It would really be great if you would be open Thanksgiving day! Please! :)
Great news Billie. Sunrise WILL be open on Thanksgiving day!
Day pass for senior plus, 77 ?
$25/$30 on holidays. Here’s the info on lift tickets Samuel http://sunriseskiparkaz.com/lift-tickets/
Any chance you will open early (Friday November 20th)? I told kids they could skip school on Friday to go skiing if you are open. We are all really really hopeful.
Sorry J, we won’t be ready to open sooner than Saturday. Yesterday’s snow helped a lot though!
What day are you guys opening?
Hi Zach, Opening Day is Saturday November 21st.
Is this confirmed!?!!!?!!!! =D Opening Day is Officially November 21st?
That is is Rafael!
last year I was with my Family (all 8 members) by Dic.27 and 01 Jan.02 and I have 3 members of my in college and they get the student pass, and this year you offer the student college pass with ***(that it will not be valis by Dic.24 thru Jan.04) that’s very trickly , Iwas counting on those discount helps, I allready reserve and pay in front for my cabin, if there any way that my sons get those discount , we are coming back from last year
Hi Rene, please call our guest services office and we can better assist you (855) 735-7669.
Rene, It was decided we would keep the College Pass $99 and have the blackout dates instead of increasing the College Pass. An option to you would be to purchase the Sunrise Card for $75 and receive the first day of skiing free and 15% off all other daily lift tickets.
Which mountains and runs will be open on opening day, November 21st?
Hi Tim, about 70% of Sunrise Peak will be open with 3 chairlifts running. Cyclone and Apache remain closed until we get a little more snow.
Are you open the Wednesday before thanksgiving? The 25th?
No, just Thanksgiving Day through Sunday.
When will you be posting the prices for lessons and rental equipment
Hi Alan, we’re finalizing rental and lesson pricing now. Should be added to the website by the weekend. It will be in most part similar to last year’s pricing.
Will the whole mountain be open this weekend or limited runs? If so will it be partial pricing for lift tickets?
Hi Kris, Sunrise Peak will be open this weekend and we will be offering half day rates on lift tickets.
Correction the ticket price for opening weekend is the half day rate. Sorry for the confusion
Will there be a discount on lift tickets for opening day, since not all the runs will be open?
Hi Aaron, lift tickets will be half day rate for opening weekend.
How early will the offices be open so we can pick up our purchased passes?
8:00a – 5:00p.
I bought my 17 year old son a youth season pass. He will be coming up this weekend to pick it up and ski. I will not be there with him. Will he be able to pick it up himself? It is in his name and he has a valid ID (drivers license). He will also have a copy of the receipt. Thanks.
Hi Tim, yes that is fine. With those documents (receipt, ID and pass in his name) we can get him all squared away at the services desk.
Hi, Why is it you won’t open during the week until the end of December?
Hi Jacob, we don’t see much traffic midweek early on in the season so we give it a few weeks before opening 7 days a week.
How much will lift tickets be on opening day?
Hi John, tickets will be half day rate this weekend.
What are the lift ticket prices going to be on opening day? Only 70% of one of your three mountains will be open with early season conditions, so I’m assuming the price will be dropped down a bit?
Hi Jaron, half price lift tickets for the weekend.
Will lift tickets be full price on Nov 21?
Half day ticket price for lift tickets opening weekend.
Can you pay with a debit card
Hi – Are you open Christmas Day for skiing ?
Hi Lisa, indeed we are open Christmas Day. We hope to be open 7 days a week early December, more details to come.
Hi.. Are there any “easy off load” chairs that are primarily designated for young children that are novice skiers? and will those chairs be open during the Thanksgiving weekend?
Hi Logan, yes the bunny hill is great for first timers. Lift 1 is easy, but the upper mtn is intermediate to advanced terrain right now. lift 8 is the beginner lift to midway and is what is used students learning to ski/board.
Are your expectating any snow before this weekend?
Hi Jim, there was snow expected Sat. but the forecast shows that chance decreasing.
when does the 7 days a week start?
Mid December. We will have more details soon (and hopefully more snow too!)
