Covering 3,128 acres, plenty of room to ski and board, Keystone has the most lit trails for night skiing complete with a fantastic terrain park. Looking for a challenge, Keystone is a great choice for the serious skier or boarder wanting to maximise their time on the snow..

 

RECOMMENDATION

Cat skiing or boarding – The Outback shuttle for USD10 will let you ski and ride in some of the most epic terrains. If you are wanting a little more out of your day and off groomed runs then this is a must.
