Hikers and bikers rejoice! The Sunburst chairlift will start turning for the summer this Friday (June 21).

The first load is at 10 a.m. and the chairlift will run until 7 p.m., seven days a week.

On Saturday (June 22) celebrate opening weekend with Lift and a Lager at the Sunburst Lodge. Your day ticket or seasons pass gets you a free beer or freezie to enjoy while a DJ entertains guests on the patio.

At 3 p.m. pick up a free cupcake to celebrate the park’s 20th anniversary.

The next day all kids 12 and under can get a free ticket to the Progression Park with staff on hand to give tips, advice, and do laps with kids.
