The fresh powder crunches under your boots as you walk out to join the group for the sleigh ride. The remaining clouds overhead are parting, revealing a brilliant blue sky. The wrangler tucks you into the sleigh under a thick , warm quilt and you’re off – gliding through the snow behind the mammoth draft horses, nose tingling in the crisp winter mountain air.
The cheerful jingle of the bell-covered harnesses drifts back to you as the horses trot in unison up the hill. As you round the corner and clear the top of the hill, a postcard-perfect vista of snow-covered mountains emerges in front of you. The sleigh glides down the back side of the hill, and you have arrived at your destination: an old-fashioned packer’s tent where you will be welcomed with your choice of a hot cup of cocoa or a fabulous homemade dinner.
Offered daily. Includes stop at the miner’s tent to take in the view and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or hot cider.
Cost: $20 per adult, $15 per child 12 years & under. Reservations please!

Dear valued guests,
Sun Mountain Lodge has been monitoring the evolving response and guidance from local and national officials regarding the coronavirus. We have re-opened the Patterson Lake Cabins at Sun Mountain Lodge on Monday, May 18, 2020 for essential travelers, based on the Governor’s guidelines.
A few Gardner and Mt. Robinson guestrooms have re-opened May 22 and the only resort service available is food and beverage on a pre-ordered, to-go basis. No other services or amenities will be available until Phase 2 begins.
Once Phase 2 goes into effect we will be able to open the main Lodge and offer more services and amenities.
We will continue to monitor this situation and update this information when it becomes available.
Please contact our reservations department between 10am- 6pm at 800-572-0493 if you have any questions.
Thank you for your support and understanding. We look forward to seeing you at Sun Mountain Lodge very soon.
