On top of night skiing, snowcat skiing, a massive terrain park, beginner slopes and backcountry bowls to please the powder hounds, Keystone compliments the mountain with a village atmosphere of fantastic shops, restaurants and lodging.
More than just a mountain, Keystone Resort covers 3,148 acres of terrain, reaching an altitude of 12,408 feet. With 20 lifts servicing 135 trails and an average snowfall of 230 inches, there are no problems with snow coverage or finding new terrain to explore.
Night skiing is a hallmark of Keystone Ski Resort, allowing lighted access to the A51 terrain, River Run Gondola and other lifts on Dercum Mountain well into the evening hours.
River Run Village is a beehive of activity both summer and winter, with live music and bustlingly shops, restaurants and cafés for some evening entertainment.
80 miles west of the Denver Airport and 65 miles east of Eagle County Airport, Keystone Resort is located in central Colorado off I-70. From the interstate highway, take exit 205 to Highway 6. Keystone is a short 6 miles south.
There are multiple shuttle companies that will provide transport between airports and the mountains, as well as between the mountain resorts and the surrounding towns.
