Apres-ski

There are venues and activities available at Keystone for apres-ski entertainment, such as wine tasting and yoga, as well as dining, but if they seem a touch quiet, take a ride to Vail, or one of the neighbouring resorts for livelier stuff.

Overview

One of the Summit County resorts, Keystone is the perfect destination for family skiing, and has excellent groomed intermediate and nursery pistes, as well as shared passes with Arapahoe Basin, Breckinridge and Vail. The tree-line skiing at Keystone is not particularly challenging, but advanced skiers will be able to practise their skills at A-Basin. With the good ski school, and childcare facilities, the resort is definitely more family-oriented, and if the apres-ski is a touch too quiet, pay a visit to nearby Vail. Adult pass: 1 day: 50 USD Adult pass: 6 days: 264 USD Child pass: 1 day: 19 USD Child pass: 6 days: 126 USD
