Sunridge Ski Area is a ski area located off of 17 Street in Edmonton, Alberta.[2] It is built on the bank of the North Saskatchewan River.

History[edit]

The ski area was opened in 1980 as part of the Strathcona Science Provincial Park. In 1983 the area was contracted to a private company and renamed Hidden Ridge Ski Area. In 1988 the ski area management changed again, and was renamed to its current Sunridge Ski Area.[3]

In 2007, following the addition of earth fill to the area between the original Orange and Red T-bars, the original Silverlode triple chairlift from Red Mountain Resort was installed.
