There is a limit amount open at night.
There are only two runs lit for night skiing, with a trick park between them, which was perfect for our limited amount of time.
The runs open for night skiing are not for beginners. They are blue and black runs. If you aren’t confident on your skis, you can hop off the lift halfway and do a very small children’s run back toward the lodges, but it's recommended you just sit out.
As far as slope conditions, skiing at night wasn’t much different than skiing during the day. The air was a bit nippier at night with temperatures near freezing.
We squeezed in as many runs as we could before getting too cold.
Steamboat’s lights were sparkling against the darkness of the mountains, and they were calling our name to go hang out with our friends out at the bars! So we stopped at the bottom and hopped back in the car.
I found the experience of whooshing down the mountain with darkness surrounding me so exhilarating and worth the wet socks I had to wear while hitting the town for the night.
Try it for yourself and book a ticket here before you get to town!
