Night Skiing at Kelly Canyon Ski Resort

Is there anything more exhilarating than skiing at night? Milky Way views, fresh turns, and no lift lines! Kelly Canyon in Ririe, ID , offers the perfect setting for night skiing with terrain suited for all skill levels of skiers and snowboarders.

You can thaw out after ( and relax your sore ski legs) right down the road at Heise Hot Springs . Cap off the evening with dinner and drinks at Heise Pizza.
