No on 36, but Friday Night Lights scheduled at Keystone

Chad Robinson of team Hometown Heroes hangs out at the base area at midnight during the 36 Hours of Keystone on Friday November 30, 2007.

I found out today that the former 36 Hours of Keystone event is done. Finished, kaput, stick-a-fork in it done.

Since security was patting-down participants for contraband booze last year, it sounds like the event was getting a little too out of hand. Alcohol + gravity + night skiing + more alcohol = potential trouble.

But, Keystone is planning a new FREE concert series in place of the forlorn 36. The Friday Night Lights Concert Series will take place in the Hunki Dori parking lot next to the new River Run Gondola:

November 21st – Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
November 28th – DeVotchKa
December 5th – Girl Talk

There will be night skiing and riding each night. I’m sure many of the former 36 Hours peeps will be attracted to this new series like cougars to a fireman, so it should be fun. Did I mention it’s free? And, by the way, it’s free.

And, since it’s early season, the usual early season lodging deals can be found. The Inn at Keystone is a favorite of mine, with sweet rooftop hot tubs. Head to Keystone’s swanky Flashy webzsite for more info: www.keystonefnl.com
