Best Locations for Night Skiing / Boarding in the West

Searched around, but I haven't found a thread dedicated to just this. If I missed it... doh! >.<

I may be able to get in extra boarding this season if I can find places w/ good night boarding in the MST or PST time zones.
I'm really lookin for a place where I can take more lessons. What are some good places for night boarding with decently priced instruction?

Looks like a # of places shut down night boarding in March... any place w/ night boarding open in April?

I'll start a list here:
  • Keystone (instruction is quite costly, and I understand non-resort instruction doesn't fly?)
  • Skibowl @ Mt Hood (Lessons seem to be decently priced compared to Keystone - http://www.skibowl.com/olympic-ski-school/. When's the end of night boarding season there?
  • Meadows has night skiing Wed-Sun (and a pipe ) - so looks like an option http://www.skihood.com, tho lessons are more $$ than Ski Bowl
  • Timberline in Mt Hood has night boarding, but only Fri/Sat - so that doesn't cut it.
  • Powder Mountain SLC is open till 9pm, pipes, parks n all! www.powdermountain.com
  • Brighton in Utah: Night skiing: 4–9 pm Tuesday–Saturday from early December through early April. Got park, pipes, and all! Lessons a bit pricey here www.brightonresort.com
  • Boreal in Tahoe's open till 9pm w/ a $129 night pass for the season - good deal. rideboreal.com Lesson's also a good deal.
  • Squaw Valley in Tahoe's till 7pm Sun-Thur, till 9pm Fri-Sat. Lessons aren't too cheap here. www.squaw.com
  • Snow King in Jackson Hole, WY - prices are pretty killer - if staying at the snow king/lift ridge lodge, night skiing is actually $10. Nights 4-7 Tue-Sat. Not big. Lessons here aren't the best deal either, but not bad. www.snowking.com
  • Mt. High in SoCal - night boarding Wed-Sun @ http://www.mthigh.com/

Keystone is pretty much your only bet in CO. Either that or hike under the full moon.

Thanks, that's kinda what I figured for CO. Ever tried boarding w/ night goggles? haha!

Forgot about the other 2 Mt Hoot spots:
Meadows has night skiing Wed-Sun (and a pipe-whee) - so looks like an option Home Page | Mount Hood Meadows Ski Resort, tho lessons are more $$ than Ski Bowl
Timberline in Mt Hood has night boarding, but only Fri/Sat (Lift Rates & Info | Timberline Lodge) - so that doesn't cut it.

may as well add them to the top post

Looks like it's open till 10pm Wed - Sunday, totally good enough. Deserves adding to the list.
You know when the season ends there? What's Mt High like?

Mt High is very nice for night skiing if you like jumps and rails.
Snow quantity is not much but I give Mt High mad props for their snowmaking and grooming. Very nice place to get away from the busy life in LA.

What about Squaw Valley in Tahoe? I've heard they do night skiing there. Can't go wrong with Lake Tahoe snow!

I like Brighton's website!!! - gives the important info up front!
Night skiing: 4–9 pm Tuesday–Saturday from early December through early April. Got park, pipes, and all! Lessons a bit pricey here too.

Park City's only listed till 4pm
Powder Mtn is indeed till 9pm - nice full mtn, pipes and all! Lessons seem to be midrange price.

Thanks all!!!
