DISCOVER THE MAGIC OF KEYSTONE
Keystone Resort is where the young and young at heart can discover the magic of exploring the mountains. One of the closest ski resorts to Denver, Keystone is a winter wonderland with more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain across three peaks and five bowls. The resort offers something for everyone including activities like night skiing, snowtubing, ice skating, sleigh rides and more. With the Kids Ski Free program, kids 12 and younger can ski and ride for free every day, all season long with just two or more nights of lodging booked through the resort. Convenient touches like free parking and complimentary red wagons for carrying gear and excited kiddos, make getting to the slopes that much easier. Plus, skiers and riders can start their winter early at Keystone with the resort slated to open as early as possible in October.
KICK OFF WINTER AT KEYSTONE
Dust off those skis and snowboards and get ready to hit the slopes in October! Thanks to a state-of-the-art automated snowmaking system on our early season terrain, like the Schoolmarm trail, Keystone plans to open as early as possible in October to kick off the winter season. With snowgun technology that can sense temperature and humidity, the resort is able to efficiently take advantage of early season weather windows and crank out snow at every opportunity to open more terrain, more quickly. With Keystone kicking off the season in October and Breck closing the season out in May, annually Summit County’s largest resorts provide an endless winter of fun and adventure with one of the longest combined ski seasons in the country.
NEW & UPCOMING ENHANCEMENTS TO OUR MOUNTAIN
Timber Ridge Lodge: Rest and refuel this winter at the newly expanded Timber Ridge Lodge on North Peak! Keystone’s largest on-mountain restaurant and lodge is now even bigger with additional indoor and outdoor seating as a part of an extensive expansion. Enjoy beautiful, 360-degree views of the surrounding peaks on the wrap-around porch while you warm up with a hot slice of pizza before hitting another run down North Peak or start your hike up to our spectacular bowls.
Bergman Bowl: Following recent work with the U.S. Forest Service, Keystone Resort is optimistic we will be able to bring lift-served skiing and riding to Bergman Bowl for the 2023/24 winter season with the addition of the new Bergman Express lift. This area of the resort will be open for hike-to accessed skiing and riding for the 2022/23 season, and for 2023/24, the new lift will improve access and provide lift service to Bergman Bowl’s 550 acres of intermediate and advanced terrain, with access to the neighboring Erickson Bowl as well.
River Run Base Area: Right next to the River Run Gondola will be the home to Keystone’s newest premier luxury development Kindred Resort. Kindred will feature ski-in/out residences as well as a Rock Resort hotel. This amenity rich resort has unique features new to Keystone like valet parking, valet ski and bike storage, three restaurants, a private signature ski club, a full-service spa, a banquet space for groups up to 350 people as well as resort retail and rental shop and exclusive pool and hot tub facility.
