Have you ever done night riding, before? It is a pretty cool scene. Only part of the mountain is lit-up at night, but it is enought to be entertained. You could always take a few runs, hit the bar, and take a few more runs.....repeat. It'll be well worth the experience and you may meet some really kick-ass people.

Brighton! PM is way out of the way about 30 minutes more (I assume you are staying in SLC) and the night riding is serviced by a rinky-dink 2-pack that covers about 600 vert. The crew at Brighton are good people, lots of SLC heads and the is a TON more terrain open, serviced by, High Speed Quad. (More than one, I believe).

The people who ride PM SUCK!!!!! (Not really, its just a jab.)

yeah Brighton has tons of open area at night including all three park areas .. lots of fun ... another thing you can do is either the super pass which is 9am to 9pm or the noon to 9pm pass as well as the standard 4pm to 9pm pass .. no nights on sundays and the buses stop before the mtn closes ( which is odd) but just something to know if you take the bus up

Everything is accessible via chairs, but the little cloud lift is a slow poke. Everything else is pretty quick, but surely not the tram.

if you are really trying to save a buck then you dont have to get the tram ... unless its a big pow day then splurge so you have the faster access. I would just cough up the xtra ten bucks and eat really cheap that night haha
