While the name Sunrise Ski Resort invites imagery of snowfall and winter sports, during the summer the area awakens to a whole other collection of fun outdoor activities. Having completed the winter season (2017-2018) in March, the resort is now preparing to open an adventurous summer season of activities beginning on Memorial Day Weekend (May 30th, 2018). Here are some of the great possibilities that summer in the White Mountains of Eastern Arizona promises:
1. Zip Line Tours
A thrilling and captivating journey takes you to the height of the birds as you zip along the trees over the mountains of Sunrise Ski Resort, enjoying the rushing air and the magnificent views.
2. Scenic Lift Tours
Perhaps you’re not into the high-speed thrills of the zip line course; then take the more relaxing chair lift rides up and down the mountain, and enjoy a picnic at the 10,700 ft. summit while taking in the scenic beauty all around.
3. Downhill Mountain Biking
Numerous fun bike trails crisscross the slopes down the mountain, making for an exceptional mountain biking course, and the lift will take you right up to the top for an exciting ride down!

Trails are in abundance throughout the White Mountains and offer visitors a delightful experience in nature without the intense heat of the desert.
