SummitCove Introduces “Browse By Picture” Feature on Website!

Keystone Resort has a wide variety of properties to choose from. SummitCove manages nearly 300 properties located exclusively in the Keystone area, which means that our guests have always had options based on their preference of budget, size, location and amenities.  Now we’ve made it even easier to select properties with a brand new feature that allows guests to browse for lodging by picture. Follow this link to access the brand new browse by picture feature!

The browse by picture option is available right from the SummitCove homepage, and it is a great option for guests who want to select their property based on decor, visual appeal or pictured amenities.  One of the best things about booking your Keystone vacation with SummitCove is that you will always know exactly which property you will be vacationing in.  Now, guests will also be able to reserve the property that captures their attention from a collection of photos.  SummitCove is the first vacation rental company to offer this feature, and we are sure it will help our guests make the perfect choice of Keystone lodging!

It’s Official! The Colorado Ski Season Opens This Weekend!

Welcome to the 2011/2012 ski season!

Colorado’s first ski resort opening begins when Wolf Creek Ski Area opens on Saturday!  The first official opening is two weeks earlier than it was last year.  Wolf Creek ski area is located near Pagosa Springs, CO on U.S. 160.  The ski area will run three lifts Saturday and Sunday, charging $33 for a lift ticket.

The opening follows on the heels of an early winter storm that dumped heavy snow on some mountain areas of the state.  SummitCove is still running the When Will it Snow Contest!? as we wait for Keystone’s first measurable snowstorm.  The first dusting came just last night, which is great news for the planned opening on November 4th!

If you are ready to get started on planning that ski vacation, contact SummitCove.  We’re happy to help you find the perfect lodging for your Colorado ski or snowboard vacation!
