Sunrise Ski Park
Sunrise Park Resort is a ski resort located near Greer, Arizona. The resort consists of three mountains named Sunrise Peak, Cyclone Peak, and Apache Peak. Situated on the Colorado Plateau and perched atop the White Mountains in eastern Arizona, with a base of 9,200 feet (2,800 m) and spread across 3 peaks and 800 acres (3.2 km2), Sunrise tops out at 11,100 feet (3,400 m) above sea level at Apache Peak.
It is owned and operated by the White Mountain Apache Tribe, and is located on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. The resort is a year-round recreation destination and offers a wide range of outdoor activities. During the winter, the resort's three mountains offer excellent alpine skiing. There are plenty of challenging runs for experienced skiers and an abundance of enjoyable intermediate runs. When Arizona experiences wet winters, which aren't all too uncommon, Sunrise provides skiing as good as anywhere in the Southwest. Their ski season usually runs from December to March. Night skiing is occasionally offered in mid-January and mid-February. There is also a snowboard terrain park and separate cross-country skiing area.

Pinetop Brewing Company
Earlier in February, Pinetop Brewing Company competed against 118 other breweries at the Strong Beer Festival, which showcased over 400 local and regional beers from several states including Arizona, Colorado, Montana, California and New Mexico. Pinetop Brewing Co.’s Grand Cru took home two golds for the Best in Show and Best Belgium/Trappist Beer. Grand Cru is a 7.00% ABV reddish brown beer with hints of dried cherry, dry red wine, and caramel-like malt.
This is a huge success for the brewery, owners James and Brigid Maloney, their head brewer John Francisco, and Pinetop-Lakeside in the White Mountains. The goal of Pinetop Brewing Co. has always been to make extremely high-quality beer in a sophisticated pub on White Mountain Blvd. They carry beers that no one else in the White Mountains serves including their exclusively Belgium style beers and other fine, bottled beers. As they say, “Small town, big beer!”
