Night Skiing at Silver Fir

Night skiing is coming to Silver Fir! Our Electrical Team started hanging lights in early-December and we're turning them on for you Friday, January 18. These guys worked tirelessly through the heat of two summers and into the cold of winter to bring night skiing to The Fir — laying over 26 miles of conduit and wire, installing 56 light towers, and securing 161 individual light fixtures on five major trails. The conduit and wire alone could span from here to North Bend! So when you find yourself enjoying those blissful night laps we all know and love - not to mention a nighttime brewski at the Silver Fir Lodge - remember the work this crew put in to help get you to that happy place.

LED PROVING GROUND: Nearly one-third of the lights in the Silver Fir area are energy-efficient, long-lasting LEDs. You'll find these modern, bright fixtures primarily along the chairline. We plan to phase in more LED units across the mountain in the coming seasons.

Expanding our night operations to Silver Fir adds 60 more acres of night terrain every Wednesday-Saturday. The additional acreage takes our total night skiing terrain at The Summit to nearly 600 acres! We won't be lighting Upper Wildcat or Upper Inspiration this winter, but all other trails will be lit. We plan to close Silver Fir Express at 9pm initially, but as the season goes on, that time could adjust. We're really excited to start up these nights at Silver Fir and hopefully you'll be just as stoked to take advantage of them, don't forget to share the love and bring some friends!
