Sledding and tubing are fun for the whole family!
There are many free local sledding hills in and around Keystone, including next to the Silverthorne Recreation Center, just north of I-70 and Hwy 6, which is a very convenient location for when the kids get cold or need to use the restroom, or just need to warm up a bit before heading out for more sledding fun! There is also a small hill near the Lake Dillon Reservoir, on the left side of the road just before you see the lake when you are driving from Keystone into Dillon.
