Steamboat Events – Winter 2014-15

Jenny O Farrell October 24th, 2014

Our favourite guest blogger, Jenny O’Farrell from Steamboat, has returned! We asked Jenny to give us the low-down on what’s hot in Steamboat and she’s put together a list of must-see Steamboat events for winter 2014/15:

18th December – 30th March – Night Skiing & Riding

Ok, so if you did not get in enough turns from first Gondola at 8:30, you can enjoy night skiing and riding for three more hours from 5:30.

This will be year #2 of illuminated slopes in Steamboat, and we’re excited to add another day to the schedule for a Thursday-Sunday program this winter. You have steeper trails off the top of the Christie Peak Express 6-pack chair, and the Lil’ Rodeo terrain park is very popular at the night sessions. The lighting is quite impressive, too – the snow is well-illuminated, but you can still appreciate the bright stars in the bight sky, too. For those who prefer to watch, grab a cocktail at the Bear River Grill and enjoy the atmosphere at the cozy fire pits.
