KB Lifts Open Till 1 a.m., Tickets as Low as $10

By Alicia Dziak

If you like late nights, skiing and fun, these nights are for you! During these Friday nights throughout the season, lifts stay open till 1 a.m. and you can grab pre-sale lift tickets for only $10 at KB or at the shop that sponsors each one.

“Late Night Great Night is your opportunity to gain an extra three hours on the slopes at night, fun with friends or family. 21 and older love the late night skiing along with the bar specials,” stated Rachel Fanelli of Kissing Bridge.

The deal is this: Purchase your ticket at Kissing Bridge and ski from 3 p.m.-1 a.m. for $45, or $15 to ski from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Or, if you head up to the event sponsor, Phatman Board Shop (2889 Sheridan Dr, Tonawanda, NY 14150), your ticket is only $10, and you can ski from 3 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Fritz the Kat will also be performing in the Lake Effect Saloon from 7 to 10 p.m.

Late Night Great Night is a KB tradition, dating back decades. “It started in the 70s, became very popular in the 80s, because it was every Friday night, and vanished in the 90s,” said Fanelli. “We brought it back in 2010, only hosting a few Friday nights during the season, and has since been a hit!”

Friday the 13th is the first Late Night Great Night of the season, with the next ones scheduled for Jan. 27 and Feb. 3.

If you can’t make it Friday, make plans to come back during the long holiday weekend!

On Saturday, head to the Beach Party at the Lake Effect Saloon, where they’ll be serving up fish tacos and tropical drinks, along with live music by Black Widow at 8 p.m. Trivia and prizes will add to the fun.

On Sunday, Joe Wagner and Winston will be performing live music in the afternoon /evening from 3 to 6 p.m.
