First Snow of the 2017 / 2018 Ski Season, Saturday, September 16, 2017

Today Keystone and Summit County woke up to chilly temperatures and a wonderful dusting of snow on our surrounding mountain peaks!  The first snow of the season is always exciting and gets everyone thinking about ski season.  We are counting down the days until we will be skiing and riding for the 2017 / 2018 ski season at Keystone Resort.  Opening day at Keystone is scheduled for Friday, November 10, 2017.  It is a lot of fun to attend opening day, there is so much excitement in the air and there are tons of freebies and fun, like free coffee and doughnut holes and prize giveaways! It always feels great to get back out on the snow. Book a ski condo for opening weekend at Keystone and save up to 50% on your ski lodging with SummitCove.
