Ski Experience - Keystone

As one of the closest ski resorts to Denver International Airport, this ski destination is only an hour and a half (or less) away. Skiing Magazine refers to it as the "ultimate all-things-to-all-skiers" resort, and that's a pretty fair summation. Keystone offers loads of fun activities, including night skiing giving you eleven and a half hours of skiing every day.

Ski Levels

The resort is well known for wide, well-groomed trails, and sets aside designated “go slow” zones so that beginners aren't overwhelmed. Actually comprised of three mountains (Dercum, North Peak, and The Outback) every level of skier is certain to find what he's after somewhere in the 3,000 vertical feet and more than 3,000 acres of trails and terrains. If there were some who complained that this resort wasn't challenging enough, that concern has been silenced by the advent of tree skiing and snowcat tours to Independence, Erickson, and Bergman Bowls. There you can launch yourself into expert terrain and truly virgin powder. The A51 terrain park, which is also lit up for night skiing, adds even more to the bumps and jumps found elsewhere on the mountain. Of course, the ski patrol are all professionals and the instructors are some of the best in the world. Whether you're a total novice or an experienced expert, you're welcome here. In addition, the United States Ski Team goes to North Peak for some early training. A score of fast, fresh lifts and over 120 trails round off the picture of a perfect ski resort vacation—an image this ski area is more than able to fulfill!

Après Ski

After your round of night skiing or a few spins at the five-acre outdoor skating rink, you'll enjoy the bars, restaurants, and nightclubs in the village. Have all the fun you can handle, with live music and dancing or enjoy a quiet or romantic conversation. The mountain village is designed to accommodate everyone, from singles and families to couples. One important thing to remember is that, even though you're very close to Denver, by the time you reach the village at Keystone, you are already high in the Rockies. The cold and wind chills are more pronounced, as are the effects of the sun's UV rays, at higher altitudes. You'll want to wear light layers and make sure you have a waterproof, breathable outer shell layer, as well as a hat that covers your ears or a ski mask, warm dry comfortable gloves, a neck gator, goggles and some sunscreen.
