Steamboat’s Night Skiing Up & Running
Published: Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013 – 400p
STEAMBOAT, CO., Dec. 28, 2013 – Steamboat Resort announced in August that night skiing would be the new evening pastime in Routt County, but now it is finally here. The Christie Peak Express Chairlift cranked up just before 530 on Dec 20 and shortly after the new era began at Steamboat.
Falling in the footsteps of the phenomenal night skiing in Keystone, Steamboat is now in the dark sky game with trails for all skier and boarder levels available on the terrain.
Steamboat night skiing will only be available Friday/Saturday/Sunday through March 31. Over the Holiday season, from Dec 26-Jan 5, night skiing will be available every day. The window will be open from 530-830p until February 20, then it will shift up to 600-900.
Tickets are available for $20/$10/$5 for all adults/teenagers/children under 12. No passes exist yet where quantities are cheaper. Steamboat did offer a night skiing season pass for $39 before the season began.
“We are excited for Steamboat. They are a great family resort, and they’ve just created a way for families to ski longer together during their ski trips,” said Jeremy Abel, co-owner of Colorado Ski Authority.
Night skiing has historically been a decision-point for those planning vacations—thinking they can get extra time on the slopes with the longer hours. However, a small percentage of skiers take advantage of this during the colder parts of the season.
It remains to be seen if Steamboat has correctly assessed the lessons of Keystone.
