Steamboat has flipped the switch and added night skiing to the slopes. Steamboat is the second major Colorado resort to add night skiing, after Keystone added it nearly 30 years ago. Five ski runs are lit up with 81 light poles, providing 1,100 vertical feet of skiing on Mount Werner.
Loryn Kasten says beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers and riders are welcome to night ski on Sitz, See Me, Vogue, Stampede and Lil’ Rodeo Terrain Park.
Night skiing is offered nightly during the busy holiday season of Dec. 26-Jan. 5. After that, you can night ski at Steamboat Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for three hours, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. through Feb. 21. The times move from 6-9 p.m. Feb. 22-March 30. Hours of operation and additional nights may change during holidays and special events.
The cost for an adult is $29, teens are $19 and kids are $9. That price drops if you purchase the night skiing ticket seven or more days in advance.
Along with Keystone, night skiing is also offered at Ski Granby Ranch and at Howelsen Hill, which is also in downtown Steamboat Springs.
