Night Skiing and Riding in Keystone

Keystone offers some of the finest night skiing in Colorado. Keystone illuminates over 10 different ski run slopes on the front face of the mountain and is available on just a few lifts. These lifts being the River Run Gondola (with a mid stop for beginners) and the Peru Express Lift (only on certain evenings); the tubing hill area is also available. The hours and availability vary, but is usually open during the heart of ski season.  Night skiing really adds to the value of your lift ticket because you can ski for over 11 hours when it is open! Nothing beats the fresh air on your face and feeling like you have the mountain all to yourself.   Night skiing is an adventure in itself and it allows skiers and snowboarders to ski for a little bit longer each day.  You can view the night ski trail map here: Keystone Night Trail Map. Now for the fun part, how does one obtain a ticket for night skiing? Luckily for you, the admission for night skiing is included in the regular lift ticket! So you can ski all day and for a few hours into the night and all will be good to go. If you have a season pass, you are also all set to night ski. One of the great parts about night skiing is the opportunity to watch the sun set while you're on the slopes.  Another fun thing is to see the Saturday night fireworks from the ski slopes right above you on River Run!
