Keystone Resort Overview
The Avant Ski Team
An easy trip from Denver, reasonable lodging options and convenient, free parking are just a few reasons why Keystone is one of the most family friendly resorts in the Colorado Rockies. However, don't be fooled by its "family-friendly" reputation. Keystone has plenty to offer off-piste enthusiasts - rock crags, bowls, glades and backcountry account for more than half of the terrain. Snowfall is reliable, averaging 225"+ annually. Keystone is easy to navigate with two base villages - Mountain House and River Run. Lakeside Village, 5 minutes away, has more dining options, shopping and one of the world's largest Zamboni maintained lakes for ice skating. There is also plenty of variety. Novices can try Schoolmarm, a 3.5 mile Green from Dercum Mountain summit to either base. Steeper Blues can test Intermediates (Elk Run) and Experts can play in tree-riddled glades (The Windows) or five hike/cat-accessible bowls. A trip to Keystone can easily be combined with visits to nearby resorts. For those wanting more, Keystone has the largest night skiing area in Colorado.
Pass Summary: The Epic Pass is the season pass for Keystone and has value pass options with nearby Breckenridge and Crested Butte. The Epic Keystone Plus Pass offers great value for unlimited access with holiday restrictions.
