If convenience, affordability and terrain options for every type of skier top your ski vacation docket, then Keystone, Colorado it is! A Keystone ski vacation truly offers slices of heaven for every single penchant, both on and off the mountain. From tubing, to fine dining or quick (and cheap) eats, to après drinks, to world-class cat skiing and perfect family friendly trails, Keystone has it all. Keystone is opportunely located just under 100 miles from Denver International Airport, the drive along I-70 takes a little over an hour and a half, so you can easily arrive in the morning and sneak a half-day of skiing in. And unless you want to go check out the outlet shopping in Silverthorne or check out downtown Frisco, there’s no reason to ever leave during your Keystone ski vacation. All the Keystone restaurants are handily located in the base village or just across Highway 6. On sunny afternoons Keystone has a lively après scene, making it a great place to have a beer and mingle.

Ski Keystone, Colorado

Every level of skier will find their own section of the mountain to call their own. Beginners will love the “learning area” off of the Ranger chairlift, as well as all the green runs off of River Run Gondola. Children of all levels, will squeal with delight in Keystone’s many Kidventure Zones, which are fun, zippy tree trails and mini-themed camps. Intermediate skiers will find they can ski all three of the lift-accessed mountains, but the best blue trails are to be found off of the River Run Gondola, with epic, sustained cruisers like Frenchman and Irishman. Expert skiers and boarders have nearly 50 percent of Keystone’s 3,000 acres to themselves, and can enjoy moguls, glades, steeps and small chutes. Powderhounds will delight in all the snowcat-accessed terrain off of Independence Mountain and Wapiti Peak.

Awesome- as always

Keystone is great. The mountain itself is more vertical top to bottom than Breck or Vail but offers great variety. Nice atmosphere and great surroundings.

good ski trip to Keystone

My son and I had a wonderful trip to Keystone for three days of skiing. Despite it being President Day weekend, Keystone kept lift lines going well. there were no lift lines early and late afternoon.

Great Spring Ski

Our family, which includes two boys ages 9 and 11, had a wonderful time. Everything was easy and accesible. The temperature was great and the snow was good. Would definately go back. If your kids don't have some experience on the slopes, it may not be your first choice.

Good Return Experience

This was our third time at Keystone - first in around 4 or 5 years though. River Run convenience was great. Hospitality and friendliness of all staff was very good. The greeters and information people were especially helpful. We come to ski generally groomed blue runs, and these were well kept. Grooming maps didn't really seem to be kept up to date though. It's a resort, not a "real town", so doesn't have a strong local feel to it.

4th visit to River Run

We really like to stay at River Run and ski Keystone. There is heated underground parking and the accomidations are very close to the lift. Lots of intermediate runs. The employees at Keystone seemed to be trained by Disney; always smiling and friendly. They really want to make sure you have a good time. We skied for 5 days, taking one afternoon to go tubing. I can't comment on the nightlife or off mountain activities because we pretty much skied and stayed in the condy. Airfare, condo, lift tickets, ski rentals and car rental were all arranged through ski.com and everything came off as smooth as silk. I couldn't get a better price on any individual item (and I tried really hard). We had a wonderful trip.

Loved Keystone

Every single staff member was the nicest person you would ever want to meet. Very friendly. The conditions were surprisingly good with the lack of snowfall they have had. My family has a wide variety of capibilities and Keystone met every need. Thought we would venture out to some of the other resorts but ended up skiing at Keystone all week. Would definately come back.

WE HAD A GREAT TIME AT KEYSTONE

We stayed at the Evergreen Condos, on the Keystone Properties. We had good space and were able to enjoy spending time together as a family. While the facility was a little dated, it was clean and had all of the things we needed for a fun ski vacation.

The Best of Them All

We all have a mission in life...mine was to ski every "destination" ski resort in the Western US and Canada. I finished that quest several years ago, and created a web page where I rank them all.

But the short version is that, if I could ski only one site for the rest of my life, Keystone would be the one !

It is far from being the most difficult; it does not have the largest number of acres.

But, the runs are the MOST BEAUTIFUL anywhere, consistently, over and over again. Each one is more spectacular than the last. I grin from ear to ear on each one; and then, most all of the lifts whisk you from bottom to top, RAPIDLY, so that you can do it all over again. Top to bottom, over and over, with beauty around every bend and corner.

I've been skiing now for 20 years, I can handle myself on double blacks everywhere (tho' no one wants to look like me when I do them); and still, I return to Keystone every year or two to re-discover the sheer joy of the skiing experience. It is the BEST overall ski site on the American Continents !!!

Great Family Resort

Keystone is one of my favorite resorts to visit. There are plenty of activities to do for all ages which makes it a great resort to bring grandma and grandpa along! The River Run base area is a great place to stay because once you get there almost everything is within walking distance. The terrain is very diverse and Keystone has be recogonized for A-51, its terrain park.

For a unique experience try the Fondue Chessel, or one of our favorite family traditions- the dinner sleigh ride at the historic back ranch!

Keystone was the first resort I ever visited out West for night skiing and what a blast it was! Since that time they have added an adventure park at the top of the River Run lift. It has its own conveyor lift! If you choose to try tubing, be prepared to laugh until your sides hurt. It's really fun. While you are on the mountain be sure to schedule some time to visit the huge ice castle with ice sculptures inside on Dercum Mountain. There is so much to do at Keystone, even for experts. There are even snow cat trips that you can take to ski or snowboard untracked powder. My favorite places to stay in Keystone are River Run, The Springs, The Timbers and Lone Eagle. All are well located and really nice. I have had a couple of incredible meals at the Keystone Ranch, which is located in the original ranch homestead. It is well worth the extra expense to dine there. (It's a bit pricey.) Call or email me today and let's discuss a package to Keystone!
