The Brettelberg Condos at Sunlight Mountain Resort are rustic slopeisde vacation rentals nestled next to Sunlight Mountain Resort. Our location is considered a backcountry location within the Elk Mountain Range with the Roaring Fork Valley just 30 minutes down the mountain. Many of our guests stock up on groceries and other essentials in Glenwood Springs before they come up to the mountain as each of our units have full kitchens. Our accommodation are more simple and rustic and we are not a full service hotel and do not offer daily cleaning or additional service.
Even though our lodging location is located slopeside at Sunlight Mountain Resort, our business operations are seperate entities. We work closely with Sunlight Mountain Resort to stay up-to-date with their response to the COVID crisis, but our lodging operations fall under different guidlines than their resort operations through the State of Colorado. It is critical to stay connected directly with Sunlight Mountain Resort to stay informed of potental ski resort / lift operations closures due to the pandemic.

NEW! The Sunlight Skier & Rider Playbook
We are in this season together. Let's all make this a season to smile about by following these 10 Plays to a Winning Ski Day at Sunlight. At Sunlight, we don’t just want to meet your expectations, we strive to exceed your expectations as a family resort - because that’s where smiles are born. To that end, and in response to the global pandemic crisis, we have re-doubled our efforts and our commitment to maintaining the highest safety, health, and sanitation standards.
While the rooms are warm in the winter most units do not have air conditioners as in the summer while it gets warm in the day it is usually cool to cold at night due to our altitude of 8500 feet above sea level. During the winter time, Sunlight Mountain Resort does offer a great selection of food in their cafe, but during the offseason (April - November) there aren't any restaurants or other dining options on the mountain. Even though our location is quite remote we do have basic internet and there is a cell tower in our parking lot so most mobile device users can get service. Keep in mind though - we are truly a backcountry mountain getaway location. Note due to our remote location when the internet goes down there can be a delay of a day to get the internet provider to restore service.
We have a few different condo layout options that include 1 bedroom units (600 square feet) and studios (400 square feed). Each unit is individually owned with varying amenities and levels of interior updates so make sure to review your selected vacation rental unit thoroughly before booking. There is a common area that offers a pool table, large TV, and a great sitting area with a stone fireplace that our management team will be happy to light. Off the main deck we offer charcoal BBQs overlooking the slopes and a hot tub with great views of Sunlight Mountain Resort. The facility is minimally staffed, but we do try to keep regular office hours if you have any questions.
During the winter time, make sure your vehicle has AWD or 4 wheel drive or a good set of snow tires as you are driving up the side of the mountain to get to our facility. We keep our driveway plowed as much as possible with assistance from the snowcats from Sunlight Mountain Resort - but we get HUNDREDS of inches of snow on average each year. Just be prepared for these conditions as you consider your booking. If you are arriving after hours (April - November after 5 pm and December - March after 9 pm) the office will not be open and the managers will not be available till the next morning. If checking in after hours, you must make prior arrangements with the on site team or you will not be granted access until morning.
