Keystone Resort Ranks in Ski Magazine's 2014 Best Ski Resorts in the West
Keystone Resort was recently voted #23 2014 Best Ski Resorts in the West by readers of Ski Magazine! Some of the notable quotes from readers about their reasons for voting Keystone included raves about exploring the vast terrain in the Outback, being able to find fresh tracks as late as 1pm in North Bowl and the long ski days that make it possible for visitors to ski on the same day they fly into DIA. Well, we would have to agree with the readers! Keystone Resort offers plenty of terrain to explore, 3,148 ski-able acres to be exact! It is easy to find in-your-face powder stashes all day long, whether it be in the trees of North Peak, the bowls in the Outback, or hike-to terrain of the Windows; you won't have to search long. There are trails to please all levels of visitors, from beginners to powder-slaying experts and all of those in-between. You will also find here the popular A-51 terrain park which is frequented by pros often. Keystone Resort is one of the only ski areas in Colorado to offer night skiing, meaning you could potentially ski up to 12 hours in a single day, but we dare you to try to make it that long! Keystone is also one of the closest resorts to Denver International Airport, just a quick 90 minute drive up the mountain and you are there! Its central location in Summit County allows you to also visit Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge, and Copper Mountain in just 20 minutes or less, making it convenient to take a day trip to another mountain. Vacation lodging options in Keystone are affordable and its one of the few resorts to still offer free walk to the slopes visitor parking! Better yet, stay in a ski-in, ski out condo at Lone Eagle or hop on the free resort shuttle to take you over to the mountain! There are also tons of other activities to do while visiting Keystone if you need to a break from the slopes and want a day to rest your muscles. Your family will love downhill snow-tubing hill at Adventure Point or skating around on the 5-acre outdoor ice rink at Lakeside Village. Take everyone on a winter sleigh ride or spend the day snowmobiling in the high country. Mom will love a relaxing spa day at the Keystone Lodge & Spa or Serenity Spa & Salon. After the day is over, visit one of the many fine dining options in Keystone or hit up the Snake River Saloon for live music and drinks. The options are endless at Keystone Resort! Winter lodging options are already booking up for prime dates, so be sure to get your Keystone ski condo booked early! We'll see you on the slopes!
