The friendly resort of Keystone has three mountains to explore and has built a reputation on the quality of its piste grooming and snowmaking. Beginners and intermediates are well served here and the more advanced have 'The Outback' to play on. Even sunset is no obstacle as there are 17 floodlit trails, with a lift service running until 8pm. Although Keystone is a family-friendly resort, the array of evening activities, from ice skating to tubing as well as the many bars and restaurants are sure to keep people of all ages entertained
Beginners should head to the front face of Keystone mountain where they will find a good choice of gentle greens. Try the Schoolmarm which is a long, lazy run which you can do at you own pace. The Outpost Gondola then opens up the green runs of North Peak without even having to venture on a blue run.
Intermediates have a wide range of runs, from long blue cruisers to a number of gladed ones such as Wolverine and Pika. Mozart is a great cruising blue run and there are plenty of runs through the trees that are not too steep and great fun.
North peak is the place to go for challenging moguls and steep'n'deep runs. Try The Outback especially the North and South Bowls. The Wombat Chutes are always a favourite where you will be rewarded with powder snow.
The A51 Terrain Park has trebled in size over the last few years, is now under lights and has features for all levels including a half pipe and a super pipe to test your skills. For freeriders this is the place to perfect those turns across the 1,861 acres f well groomed terrain or try the open runs in The Outback.
