From now until Friday, April 02, 2010 Keystone ski resort guests can join with the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District to enjoy a free, on-hill skiing nature tour. This free tour guided by a local Ranger meets every Friday at 10:00am at the base of the River Run Gondola and lasts approximately an hour. To participate you need only a lift ticket and intermediate skier/rider ability. This is a great activity to enjoy and easy to come back to River Run Village after the tour of Keystone Resort for a nice lunch or snack before heading back up on the gondola!
On this tour you will learn about the history of Summit County and Keystone Ski Resort, Dillon Reservoir, mountains in view from Keystone, forestry, wildlife, and tree identification. Find out what kind of critters are making those tracks under the lift lines and other fun facts about the forest that surrounds Keystone Ski Resort!
