Sunlight is now targeting Friday, Dec. 12 for its new Opening Day. The resort will make an official opening day announcement on Wednesday, Dec. 10.

Free lift tickets issued for December 5, 6 or 7 that locals received or will receive as an incentive to see the Warren Miller Film or the Teton Gravity Research film Under the Influence on December 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the Hotel Colorado will be valid for the first three ski days of the season when those dates are announced.
