Night Skiing

Night Skiing

With the slopes illuminated by bright lights, whooshing downhill after sunset offers different views and smaller crowds. (Olympian)
By late afternoon, most skiers are heading home after a day on the mountain at the Summit at Snoqualmie (WA) Ski Area. But a fresh batch of snow enthusiasts, just off of work or school, are ready for their turn on the runs.

Night skiing offers a stark contrast to the visual landscape of daytime skiing, but most folks say the real reason they come is because there are fewer crowds. In just a couple of hours, skiers can make a lot of runs, thanks to high-speed lifts.

With high-powered lights illuminating the slopes and stars overhead on clear nights, skiers say they enjoy the different atmosphere of night skiing.

This video by the Olympian (Olympia, WA) highlights the thrills and advantages of skiing after hours and includes fast-paced skiing and jump scenes on the slopes. Videographer Tony Overman hung his Canon 5D Mark II camera around his neck to shoot the skiing action video.
