Holiday Happenings 2012 at Keystone Resort

The Holidays are here at Keystone Resort!  All around the Resort you will notice signs of the Holidays, including the penguin Snow Sculpture pictured above!  There is a large lighted Christmas Tree in River Run Village and as you walk you will hear the sounds of Christmas Songs playing throughout the Village.  Some fun Holiday events are planned for the next two weeks in Keystone. Ice Skating: 2 outdoor ice rinks are both open at Dercum Square in River Run Village and Lakeside Village.  Dercum Square is open daily 11am-8pm, and Lakeside Village is open 9am - 9pm.  Play pond hockey or play 'ice queen'- its something the whole family will enjoy! Snow-Tubing: Just like when you were a kid, only on a much bigger hill with its own tubing lift - during the day or under the lights. With a unique state-of-the-art conveyor lift, the amount of rides is up to you. Get ready to laugh until it hurts in this must-do experience for all ages.  Every Thursday enjoy Disco Snow Tubing under the lights!
