Powderhorn Mountain Resort will kick off extended hours Friday and Saturday, Feb. 28 and March 1, with its first weekend of night skiing from 4-9 p.m. The cost for night skiing is only $15 a day.

“This is a new thing, something we haven’t done before,” Powder Mountain Resort marketing manager Dave Smith said, as a way to “celebrate spring.”

According to Smith, the lower mountain will be open under portable lights for skiers and snowboarders.

“We will have the Take-Four lift open to Midway with Lower Peacemaker run along with the Easy-Ride lift and Bottom’s Up run under the lights,” Powderhorn’s website said.

Then, starting Friday, March 7, Powderhorn will host “$15 Fridays” night skiing events through the rest of the season from 3-6 p.m.

It’s also $15 for rental equipment, and $15 for a one-hour group lesson, Smith noted. For $15 Fridays, night-ski tickets can be purchased starting at 2 p.m.

“All day ticket purchasers, season pass holders and P-Card user tickets will be valid until 6 p.m.,” the website said. “For those coming up to use their P-Card for $15 Fridays, there will not be a discounted rate linked to your card. Please purchase your ticket at the Ticket Office.”

On March 1-2, Powderhorn will also host the Mardi Gras weekend and crawfish boil, along with the fifth annual Taber Auto Body/Wagner Rents Dummy Jump on March 1.

Smith said the dummy jump will be held under the portable lights as well.

Participants will launch items off a ramp “at the base of the mountain, where a crowd awaits and watches as the parade of floats take flight one by one,” the website said.

This event is sure to be destructive and fun, Smith added.
