Sunburst Ski Area
A Family Ski Area

Located 35 miles north of Milwaukee, Wis., Sunburst Ski Area benefits from the "Lake Michigan effect." And when Mother Nature does not cooperate, the state of the art snowmaking and grooming equipment takes over.

Sunburst is a small, family-run ski area that offers 10 runs on 35 skiable acres. All the runs are fully lighted for night skiing. Snowboarders will enjoy a half-pipe and snowboard park complete with rope-tow, lights and sound system.

The facilities at the Sunburst chalet include ski and snowboard rentals, cafeteria and lockers.
