Keystone Resort Colorado

Keystone is great choice for families among the Vail resort collection, with a pedestrian ski village by the slopes, and a swift gondola serving skiers from the base. Keystone offers trails for every ski level plus significant snowmaking, and fine on mountain dining. Keystone really does have terrain for everyone, beginners can actually enjoy top to bottom skiing which is unusual in high elevation Colorado resorts. While there isn't anything particularly challenging at Keystone, there is over 3,000 acres plus 500 acres reserved for cat-skiing for experts.

For après ski, you can keep skiing, Keystone has Colorado's largest night skiing operation, or head to the villages - River Run, Mountain House and Keystone Village. Keystone has a plethora of family activities - tubing, bungee jumping, Adventure Point, a Snow Fort, and kids camps, and a Keystone Lodge Spa for mom and dad's kneeds. Families will appreciate that kids 12 and under ski and stay free on 2 or more night packages. A village condo at Keystone is an ideal setting for your Colorado ski vacation, you can walk to shops and dinner, and you can take a shuttle to sister resorts, Vail, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, or Beaver Creek on the same ski ticket.
