Night Skiing at Park City Mountain Resort with a chance of Perfection – Lake Capilano, Vancouver BC
There’s nothing like skiing under the lights – and we’re the only place in town to do it. First Time, 3 Kings, and Payday chairlifts spin until 8:00 pm every night through the last weekend of March – serving First Time and Turtle Trail runs, as well as 3 Kings terrain park
And don’t worry about missing out on dinner, The Shack and PayDay Pizza are both going into the evening to help you keep running as long as the lifts.
If you’ve never done a night ski mission, you can’t leave Park City without trying it. No lift lines, a special nighttime atmosphere, there’s nothing like it.
Just got into town in the afternoon and can’t wait to make some turns? Or just always wanted to see what it’s like to ride the lift under the stars? Make it a memorable evening out with a night on the slopes. Just remember to add a couple layers.

In the far distance you can see the two "Lions", which are 5,400 ft mountain peaks near Vancouver. When you see them from a distance, they resemble two lions lying side by side. The two mountains are part of te Howe Sound Group of Mountains (North Shore Mountains). The city’s BC Lions CFL football team is also named in their honour. This mountain also has an alternative name, called "Bert Mountain", as the two pointed peaks resemble the ears of the famous cat "Bert".
You can climb them if you wish, but an easier place to see them is from the Cleveland Dam recreation area. That’s where this photo was taken.
Here is my shot list of the top 5 places (in my opinion) for photographers:
1) Stanley Park (day or night). Be sure to shoot the skyline, the totems, visit the zoo, and enjoy the gardens.
2) Drive up to Cleveland Dam. There is a beautiful park there complete with hiking trails, views of the two "Lions", and an awesome reservoir.
3) Drive up to Cypress and stop off at the scenic overlook. Bring your longest lens – on a clear day you will be rewarded with some spectacular views of the city.
4) Shoot the Lion’s Gate Bridge and the Vancouver skyline from West Vancouver.
5) Head on over to the Chinese Gardens and Chinatown. Vancouver has long been home to many immigrants. This is one reason why you can find so much diversity in architecture, parks, churches, and the people.
If you are efficient, you can shoot all of these in two days. I did not have a chance to shoot inside the city as much (there are many great parks, churches, and the famous Gastown area). I’m sure those are awesome as well – I will get them next time.
