A mountain shot of Keystone's night skiing. By

It takes a lot of skill to offer a night ski spot fun and worthwhile, and Keystone Ski Resort has got it. Not only is Keystone Resort itself a lively place for food and entertainment, the skiing and snowboarding can last until 8 p.m.

The Keystone mountain at night is active, with runs, a tubing hill and terrain park lit by floodlights. Temps might drop and runs can get icy, but Keystone night skiing and snowboarding is an appealing addition to an already successful and beautiful mountain.

Varied night owl options

The layout of Keystone’s night terrain has some flare to it. Though most of the open runs are greens and blues, the ski resort’s well-known Area 51 Terrain Park stays lit for late afternoon sessions. The terrain park closes at 6 p.m., but the remaining runs are open until 8 p.m. The night ski area is accessible Wednesday through Saturday by the River Run Gondola and River Run Mid carpet.


What really sells Keystone’s on-mountain nightlife is the tubing hill. The area is a high tech and pimped out tubing kingdom ready to tow with a big conveyor belt throughout the day and night. The hill is huge, the runs are long and the tubes are like rubber rings bouncing down a pipeline. It’s a fun, safe and thrilling bonus to Keystone’s night adventure for the young and young at heart.

Daytime is even better

The daytime is the best way to see Keystone Ski Resort at its finest. With over 100 ski runs and more than 3,000 skiable acres available, Keystone is a giant mountain with a lot to offer. Over 50 percent of ski trails are for beginner and intermediate levels, leaving a vast space for advanced skier and riders to play on. Keystone is worth a visit during the day and night, on or off the slopes.
