10 Winter Activities to Try While at Keystone Resort
Outdoor Ice Skating Keystone is home to not just one, but TWO outdoor skating rinks! My personal favorite is the ice rink at Keystone Lake in Lakeside Village, with mountain views and wide open space to really test your speed on those skates! Rent skates at Adventure Point and then warm up with a hot drink at the bar! Dinner Sleigh Rides Two Below Zero or the Keystone Stables both offer dinner sleigh rides, but book with Two Below and you'll receive an exclusive SummitCove Lodging guest discount. Enjoy a night bundled up under the stars, heading to the cabin on a horse-pulled sleigh where you'll be greeted with warm drinks, a delicious and hearty meal and live entertainment! This is an experience you'll never forget! Snow Tubing Make a reservation for an hour of family fun at the Tubing Hill at Adventure Point at Keystone. This is a great activity for everyone to enjoy together and the smiles will never stop! Snow Mobiling & Zip Lining There's no better way to take in the wide scenic views of the Colorado countryside than ripping through wide open powder fields on a snowmobile! We recommend this for the adventure seekers, but there are options for a mellower tour too. White Mountain Tours offers special rates for SummitCove Guests on all of their tours. If you aren't into snowmobiling, they also offer a 2-hour winter snowcat & zip line tour - it's so much fun! Brewery Hopping Summit County is home to quite a few breweries and if you are a beer-lover, why not spend an afternoon checking them out? Start in Dillon, check out the Dillon Dam Brewery, Pug Ryan's and Baker's Brewery. Next up is Frisco and on the list is Outer Range Brewery and Backcountry Brewery. Finally head to Breckenridge and visit Breckenridge Brewery and Broken Compass. Prefer spirits? The Breckenridge Distillery offers free 'samples' at their tasting room on Main Street in Breck. Don't have a driver? Check out the Last Lift Bar at Mountain House or 9280' Tap House in River Run for a selection of drafts on tap. Skiing and Snowboarding Of course Keystone Ski Resort is most known for the amazing skiing and riding on the mountain. If you are new to the sport, take a lesson to learn the ropes and then spend day two improving on what you've learned. Keystone is home to 3 world-class peaks that offer trails for every type of skier or rider. Kidtopia Events & Activities Keystone Kidtopia events happen daily here at Keystone and almost all of the events are free! Enjoy arts and crafts times, exploration, snow ball fights, parades and more, with something to do every day! Snowshoeing or Nordic Skiing If you enjoy a slower pace to take in the scenery and listen to the sounds of nature, head out for a day of snow shoeing or nordic skiing. Both offer a great workout and opportunities for photos! You'll want to dress in layers so you can strip down as you start to work up a sweat! Ready, Paint, Fire Attend a specialty class or just open studio and create til your hearts content! Create a custom souvenir or something to remember your trip! Ready, Paint, Fire has a ton of projects for all ages and your family or friends will have a blast letting their creative sides show! Their studio is located next to the Lake in Lakeside Village. Happy Hour Tour There are so many great restaurants to try here at Keystone, a great way to try out a number of options is to stop in at Happy Hour in Keystone! Dos Locos has great taco and wings specials, Kickapoo Tavern is known for the awesome and lively outdoor patio, New Moon Cafe has a fun atomosphere and great deals, Zuma Roadhouse has some great food options, such as Edamame and Fondido, or head to the Bighorn Bistro for a nice spread. Enjoy discounted food and drinks at happy hour! This list is just the beginning of the fun, there are endless activities for you and your family to enjoy during your Keystone Family Ski Vacation. When you reserve a condo with SummitCove Lodging, you'll have instant access to exclusive guest discounts on many of these activities, too!
