Repost. So my local hill sucks, but its small property size does give it one advantage: night skiing. Whereas most resorts are closed after 4, my hill is open until 9 pm and 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays. For many skiers a full day is seven hours. I have skied 17 hours on multiple occasions, and it's rare if I have a session less than 10 hours. This helps my endurance and allows the party to keep going after the sun goes down. I love night skiing. Less people. Easier to do shenanigans and not get busted. Who else skis a small hill that goes late?
