Luke Dorking

"A brilliant ski resort with a pedestrianised centre. The 3 mountains are all connected, with tree-runs and a great park. Night skiing is a must - you’ll ski/board a few runs then end up in the Kickapoo Tavern for a warm up!"

Why Keystone?

Keystone is a favourite family ski holiday destination with an attractive pedestrian village centre, great ski school and superb range of non-ski activities. Another key attraction for families is Keystone's signature family-friendly event, Kidtopia hosts a number of free activities, a Snow Fort and off-mountain events and activities.

The ski resort is split into seven residential neighbourhoods providing a choice of secluded woodland townhomes and slopeside condos, all linked by a regular free shuttle service. River Run is the centre of the resort where the majority of the shops, bars and restaurants are located.

Keystone is renowned for its immaculately groomed tree-lined runs spread over 3 interconnecting mountains. All levels are catered for from the fantastic beginners' area at Mountain House, to the outback snow cat skiing which offers up to a full day's adventure accessing around 1,000 acres of powder skiing. While definably a "family friendly" resort, Keystone offers excellent terrain and one of the best freestyle parks anywhere in North America - Area 51.
