Sonlight meadow in January

Sonlight meadow in January

Sonlight Camp has had a robust winter season for the past 30+ years. Sonlight is available for church groups to rent, most of our winter groups are church youth groups, many return year after year for their annual ski trip to Wolf Creek Ski Area.

Winter groups at Sonlight often ski during the day, then do evening worship and program. The hot tub, snow shoes, a meadow full of snow, hot chocolate and board games in the dining room make it a magic place for a winter trip.

Opened in 1939, Wolf Creek Ski Area claims “The Most Snow in Colorado”. The resort is located within the steep San Juan Mountains,  30 minutes north of Pagosa Springs. It’s a favorite, small resort.  The days at Wolf Creek are sunny, the snow is epic.

The San Juan Mountains get their big snow dumps when storms roll out of the pacific and come up through the south. Through the years some of the memorable storms have dropped  up to 48″ of snow on Sonlight in a day. A bit of shoveling and plowing follows, to clear the roads, all the pathways and decks.

No deep snows at Sonlight yet, but we’ve got the chains on the snow plows, firewood stocked for the winter and we’re ready- bring on the snow!
