Whether you own skis or not, you’ll want to have an idea of what to expect to get skiing. You’ll need boots and skis (or snowboard) with bindings. Many skiers like using poles as well. Don’t forget to bring your own equipment if you’ve got it, but rest easy knowing that Sunrise has everything you need available for rent as well. Additionally, sleighs and tubes are available.

3. Brace Yourself for the Cold

It sure ain’t the desert up here, so get ready for some icy temps. Mountain temperatures in Greer, AZ often drop to 18 degrees or below in winter at night! During the day the highs are generally in the low 40’s, so bring your jackets and consider extra layers such as hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, and blankets for cozying up to the fire in the evenings.
