About the Ski Resort

Keystone Resort is comprised of three incredible and unique mountains - Dercum Mountain, North Peak and The Outback.

Each mountain offers some of the best terrain Colorado has to offer: steeps, bowls, bumps, glades, rails, hits, lights - you name it, Keystone has it.

The Outback's tree-filled glades protect powder stashes for tree skiers long after the snow is packed on other runs, plus two immense bowls for those looking for an off-piste experience.

Area 51 is Colorado's largest terrain night park and stays open during 8p.m. and 10p.m. on weekends. The entire mountain is open for evening skiing, offering fifteen other runs to ski and ride under the stars. Keystone is home to the largest single-mountain night skiing experience in North America: it opens early and closes late and has the best night-skiing in Colorado.

Keystone has stepped up in recent years with many improvements on and off the mountain: enhanced tree skiing, improved snowmaking, Adventure Point tubing, snowbikes and Air Board rental, more hockey and skating, famous Nordic skiing center and legendary snowshoe trails to name a few. If you're looking for some Snowcat skiing and riding, Keystone Adventure Tours is there to meet needs as well.

Discover the thrill of cross-country skiing and glide across groomed trails with family or friends. Or get away from it all and trek across the unique mountain top trail on Keystone Mountain, experiencing the serenity of the backcountry wilderness in the Arapaho National Forest.

From there, you can reserve an afternoon horse-drawn stagecoach ride through the Snake River Valley, or book the whole family on a horse-drawn sleigh ride to an 1860's homestead cabin, where cowboys cook mouthwatering dinners over an open fire.

Or skate all day and all evening on the five-acre frozen surface that is Keystone Lake, the largest outdoor maintained ice rink in the country.

Keystone has contributed a million dollars in restaurant and nightlife improvements over the past seasons, all in addition to more than 30 casual and award winning restaurants. There are outdoor concerts in the village and D.J.'s spinning in the bars. If that means making first chair in the morning is out of the question, no worries, we have night skiing.

Play for FREE when you stay at Keystone! Every guest at Keystone Resort properties receive FREE Adventure Passports loaded with one-time coupons for activities and adventures! Activities include ice skating admission, night skiing on the night of arrival, scenic sleigh rides, wine tasting, yoga, and more!
