Looking to change things up one evening with a friend or the kids? Night skiing has been a fun “go-to” for us when the timing is right. Especially over those Christmas, winter, or spring breaks. A number of resorts in Utah offer night skiing. Some with some pretty killer deals and lots of fun to be had.
The kids dig night skiing too as it seems to transform the resort. The runs have a different feel, new features seem to come to light, and riding the chair at night can be spooky, but cool in some spots. If you’re looking to get out over the coming weeks, here are some great options in Utah.
This resort has over 200 acres, four lifts and the main terrain park open for night skiing. They even offer lessons and rentals. Hours are from 4 – 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday from mid-December through April. Brighton also offers some great deals for you to make an evening of it!
More info on Brighton night skiing here.
If you are looking to go more of the private party route, Beaver is the ticket! The majority of their night operations revolve around this but they do have some evenings open to the public. You can find the dates and more info here. This option is great for groups, family reunions etc.
Heading further south? Brian Head is your option here. Rates range between $25 - $30 for a ticket depending on the time of year. They offer rentals and you can upgrade your full-day lift ticket to keep going through the night for only $12-14. Much like the other resorts they spin the Blackfoot chair from 4:00 - 9:00 pm so you can get in your extra turns. Additional information here.
Offering the most vertical of any resort for night skiing, you can get a pass from $18-29. If you have a little tike, you can even take advantage of their magic carpet. Only $10 to get them out on the mountain after a day at preschool.
Lifts spin Monday through Saturday from 5 - 9 pm. Cherry Peak's $29 pass will get you access to the Summit Lift which is where you would be able to get in the most vertical. Cherry Peak also offers rentals during evening hours at no additional cost if needed. Hours and rates can be found here.

Sundance Mountain Resort:
Sundance Mountain Resort has the majority of the front mountain open for night skiing during the winter season on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. The terrain park will also be open during night skiing nights! Night skiing runs from 4:30 - 9 pm and the cost is between $45-$55 depending on skier and date. More information can be found here.
Further north, Powder Mountain is your go to spot. Ski any night of the week with a pass that will get you on the hill from 3-9pm. If you get on the lift by 3pm, you can enjoy nearly the entire mountain for an hour. Once 4 pm hits the Sundown lift will be open for laps the rest of the night. Night tickets are $32 for youth (7-18), $36 for adults (19-64), and $32 for seniors (65-74). You can even get a night skiing season pass starting at $220 if it works for your schedule.

The newest to the crew! Woodward is going to be all about your ability to shred in the park or go tubing. Great thing is that you can get a variety of things going on here depending on what your crew is into. Some could be tubing while others are out in the park. They do an excellent job of building things for kids and adults alike to progress. You don’t have to stress about being thrown into the deep end here. If the kids are spent or mom and dad need a break, the indoor set up is killer too. You can grab some food and a beer while looking out on much of the resort.
Prices vary greatly here depending on the day, how far ahead you book, and the time of season. More info.
All said and done there are a number of great opportunities and locations for you to get out for some night skiing. It’s been a fun way for us to change up the pace as a family and it’s great to see so many resorts offering good deals to help create the experience. Find one near you or that fits your style and get after it!
