Happy Skier at Keystone Ski Resort Dercum Mountain

Record Setting Snowiest October in History at Keystone

Not only is Keystone open for the 2019-2020 season, they are open with record breaking snowfall!  Yes, Keystone has received 44 inches of new snow in the month of October so far, 17 inches of that in the last week alone.  This beat the pact 2006 October snowfall record of 43 inches at Keystone.  The base is sitting at 18 inches and getting deeper everyday. Today there are 4 runs open and 6 chair lifts running, but tomorrow Keystone is planning on opening up even more terrain, with the addition of intermediate runs Silvermaster, lower Paymaster and Spring Dipper, which will have terrain park features.  Also opening will be advanced run, The Edge, and River Run, intermediate, which will take you all the way to the bottom of the mountain to River Run Base Area without having to download on the River Run Gondola. It is time to make your first trek of the season to the mountains!
