SAM Magazine--January 2, 2013--Jim and Kim Engle, owners of Sunburst in Wisconsin, announced an agreement to sell their resort to Rob and Jennifer Friedl, who, according to the Engles, will "continue to focus on families and to take Sunburst to a new level, even better than what we know now."

The Engles plan to help with the transition to the new owners over the coming years.


Sunburst Sold Congrats & Best wishes

Congratulations to Jim & Kim Engle on the sale of their resort. My son Andy & I had the pleasure of working with Jim and Kim as Alpine coaches and divisional race coordinators with the Chicago Division of the Midwest Collegiate Ski Association. They provided a premier racing venue and were instrumental in bringing alpine racing to college students in our area. The Engles truly understand the importance of bringing ski racing and winter sports activities to our youth. Through their efforts thousands of kids learned to ski, snowboard and enjoy the Winter. Real hands on owners like Jim and Kim are to be praised for their contribution to the industry and we sincerely hope that the new owners, Rob & Jennifer Friedl continue in their tradition. Best wishes Mark- Chestnut Mtn. Junior Race Team, Galena IL & Andy VanOsdol- Head Coach, Warrior Ski Team Park City UT.
