Turkey Talk: Thanksgiving in Keystone

What better way to spend Thanksgiving than in a beautiful snowy mountain setting? We still have lodging availability for the holiday weekend, so gather up your friends and family and head up to Keystone! There is plenty to do in Keystone this holiday weekend. Keystone now has skiing down to both River Run Village and Mountain House base areas. It’s time to get those skis out of the garage and get ready for the season! Also, the Saturday after Thanksgiving is Keystone’s Winter Carnival and Lighting of River Run. Bring the kids to enjoy cookies, hot cocoa, and meet Santa. For the adults enjoy live music with a warm cocktail in your hand. End the festival with the Lighting of the Holiday Tree to get you into the holiday spirit.

Of course the best part of Thanksgiving is eating! Here are some great options for you if you’d either like to venture out for dinner, or if you would like to have your meal prepared for you to bring back to your lodging and family.

Thanksgiving Dinner Out

  • Enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with rustic ambience and white tablecloths. The Snake will be serving their full menu with specials. Make sure to check out the live music over the weekend if you’re looking for some late night fun. The Snake is a Keystone institution!

  • Enjoy a Scenic Cocoa Ride or Dinner Sleigh Ride over your Thanksgiving holiday weekend. It will sure to be your favorite memory of the holiday. SummitCove guests can look for a special coupon to save on their sleigh rides in the Key to Keystone coupon book.
