Fall is Your Best Chance to See Moose in Keystone

If you are dreaming of seeing a moose during your mountain vacation, you should book a trip to Keystone over the upcoming few weeks.  Fall is one of our favorite seasons in the mountains and not just for the incredible leaf peeping and amazing weather.  It is also one of the best times to see moose in the mountains.  Fall is the prime mating season for moose and it is when they are most active, mainly in the months of September and October. Moose are most comfortable in cold, damp environments and you can often see them hanging out in marshes or ponds.  These moose were spotted today in West Keystone, near the marshy areas close to the Snake River.  We have also seen them at other times in River Run Village, near the Gateway Lodge and out and about Snake River Townhomes.

If you are lucky enough to spot a moose during your visit to Keystone, please remind that these are wild animals and keep your distance.  Moose are very large animals and can often be unpredictable and aggressive and could charge at any time.  Enjoy the view, but from a distance.  Good luck with your moose ‘hunting’ this fall!
