Keystone extends night hours


Due to demand, Keystone has extended its night skiing and riding two extra hours until 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays until Jan. 1. The resort offers night skiing and riding every Sunday through Thursday until 8 p.m. “It all started with our opening weekend promotion of 36 non-stop hours of skiing and riding,” Tolton said. “We were amazed at how many people showed up at 2 a.m. to ski and ride. Since then, we’ve seen a spike in the popularity of night skiing and riding.”The additional night ski/ride hours, like the normally scheduled night skiing/riding, will be powered by wind energy. This season, Keystone partnered with 3Phases Energy of California to offset electricity used for all night ski lights and lifts by purchasing 707 renewable energy certificates per year for the next three years. The renewable energy certificates ensure that clean wind power is delivered to the power grid, displacing an equivalent amount of energy from non-renewable energy sources like coal or natural gas.The twilight-only ticket for the holidays, valid 4-10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and valid Sundays through Thursdays 4-8 p.m., is $39. Bring a season pass or lift ticket from a non-Vail Resorts ski mountain and get another $10 off the price of the twilight tickets. Full-day Keystone lift tickets (or any other ticket valid at Keystone or Breckenridge for that day) are valid from opening at 8:30 a.m. until closing.
