Keystone in short

  • Plenty of night skiing
  • Excellent snow park
  • Beautiful off-piste skiing

Keystone ski resort is located in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains and offers about 135km of slopes on three mountain peaks and five bowls, as well as night skiing and in-bounds catskiing. It’s a family-friendly ski area with all the facilities you could ever dream of, but with no shortage of steep ‘n deep skiing for experts.

Keystone is part of the Vail Resorts Conglomerate and offers the possibility to buy an Epic ski pass that is also valid at the neighbouring resorts of Vail, Breckenridge and Beaver Creek if you fancy making a road trip out of your American ski holiday. Keystone is a purpose-built ski resort and doesn't have the same charm as some of the former mining towns-cum-ski-resorts in the American West. However, it does offer convenient ski holidays with comfortable accommodation, all just a short drive from Denver International Airport. It's easy to get direct flights here from the UK, making it a very viable option if you want to venture outside of the Alps for your next ski holiday.

Skiing at Keystone

Easily accessible Dercum Mountain has gentle terrain for beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders, as well as an award-winning terrain park with halfpipes and jumps for all levels. North Peak and The Outback offer more advanced terrain, including moguls, deep powder and gladed pistes. You’ll find fantastic off-piste terrain in the Independence, Bergman, Erickson, North Bowl and South Bowl, accessible via hiking or snowcat. Night skiing in Keystone is a special experience. A far cry from the one or two runs that are sometimes lit up in European ski resorts, at Keystone night skiing means a large portion of the ski area remains open so you can enjoy the sunset from the slopes!
