Know what time you want to eat dinner? Pre-order your food when you arrive at the Park to schedule a time. 

Here's what you need to know to have an enjoyable night at the Park: 

  • Wear plenty of warm clothes as it will be cold on the hills once the sun has gone down, we recommend 2-3 layers and bring your gloves!
  • All riders must have adequate lighting, a minimum of 600 lumens. Our preference is that your lights are on your helmet before your handle bars. Please ensure your lights are fully charged and have a back-up head torch or equivalent.    
  • To make your ride more enjoyable, buddy up and be sure to ride to the conditions. Trails are often a grade level higher in the dark.
  • Trails open on the night will be confirmed closer to the day. 
  • If you are coming to ride the chairlift or to walk up the uphill track, bring a head or handheld torch with you – fully charged. It will be dark once you walk away from the Village.
