Mountain Living Begins at Sunrise

The Sunrise Basin

It isn't often that a large alpine resort, one with 80 years of skiing tradition, offers the opportunity to become part of its enduring legacy. This planned mountain community will offer long-time loyal families and resort explorers the once in a lifetime opportunity to stake their claim in the heart of a vibrant mountain community. As an investment, a home in the center of a popular ski and snowboard destination makes sense. The Sunrise Basin is Washington State's only ski-in/ski out resort development, and the region's only master-planned winter resort community, which translates to lasting value and a community that will welcome guests for generations to come.


The Sunrise Basin development allows you to achieve your dreams of owning ski-in/ski-out property and building a home in the heart of a vibrant alpine resort. Winter sports enthusiasts can choose a single family home, share in a condominium, or enjoy multi-day visits in a resort hotel. The development will grow into an active, year-round community, serving the mountain's loyal following and new guests, as well as honoring its legacy, and increasing its accessibility for everyone.

Sunrise Basin will allow 49° North resort to be upgraded as the Sunrise Basin community matures. Increasing investments will allow capital improvements on the mountain, such as high-speed chairlifts, additional trails, and other resort amenities.


Development will occur in multiple phases, spread across three distinct neighborhoods known as: Alpine Glades, Sunrise Village and Royal Ridge. As the resort develops, new home sites, multiplexes, lodges and an alpine village will take shape.

When completed, these three neighborhoods will offer a combined 2,700 housing units, several thousand square feet of retail space, full service lodges, and ski-in/ski-out access for all.

Alpine Glades

Alpine Glades, located on 50 acres at the base of the Sunrise Quad chairlift, is the first phase of the 15-year, $500 million Sunrise Basin Development. Alpine Glades will provide a mix of single-family housing, duplexes, condominiums, a lodge and a resort hotel.

The initial offering in this first phase will take place in 2016, when approximately 35 home sites and duplex lots will be released. These lots will all feature true ski-in/ski-out access to the Sunrise Quad chairlift.

  • First chair. First tracks. First offering. It pays to be first on the mountain.
  • Your Home At the heart of the resort
  • It's like the first chair on a powder day For the rest of your life

49° North: A Family Tradition

49° North is located just north of Spokane Washington, in the heart of the 1.1 million acre Colville National Forest. It is a place known for its extensive powder runs and family fun. It is a hidden jewel - a skier's paradise. Over the years, the mountain has evolved and grown. And today, it's the second largest ski area in Washington, boasting more than 2,300 acres of terrain, 2 summits, 3 basins and 7 lifts. People have been enjoying the snow on Chewelah Peak for 80 years, a legacy spanning multiple generations. It is a family place, and it has been for a long time. 49° North is the perfect area to develop a true ski-in/ski-out community. And it's the perfect place for families to realize their dream of a home on the mountain.

It's time to take that next step - to realize that dream, and stake your claim.







A Community Positioned For Success

Sunrise Basin boasts the perfect combination of community and location. 49° North has both supported, and been supported by the local communities throughout the past 80 years. In fact, from the moment Cy LaVigne brought the first pair of skis to the people in the small town of Chewelah in the early 30's, they were hooked. Skiing is part of the culture in this area, and 49° North is the center of winter activity. Chewelah also enjoys a world-class 27-hole golf course just 15 minutes from the ski resort, its own airport with a 3,446' runway, a casino minutes to the south, and a modern hospital. All the amenities of the city, in a small town. Also, the resort is close enough to an international airport to allow access from all over the world.

The Sunrise Basin Development is the right place, at the right time.
