GRAND MESA, Colo. - Powderhorn Ski Resort brought up dozens of professional grade lights for their first ever night skiing event in their mountain's history.


The resort stayed open five hours past it’s typical closing time as dozens of lights lined the runs halfway up the mountain.


“We have over 200 people so far who've come up to get their lift tickets,” said marketing manager Dave Smith.


Officials said the rented lights are the same ones used in the 2014 Winter X Games.


Night skiing will continue until Saturday, but after that all the lights come down.


Lift tickets are only $15 dollars if you purchase them past 3:30 p.m. Season pass holders are welcome to use lifts at night for free.


Officials said they hope to carry a night skiing weekend event in the coming seasons as well.
