8 Reasons Keystone is the Top Full-Service Ski Resort near Denver
We know why you live in Denver. Sure, it’s got an explosive beer industry, a bustling tech and startup community, and it’s one of the most beautiful metropolitan skylines any city could hope for.
But we also know you moved here for one main reason: the proximity to mountains makes it easy to escape whenever you want to go steep and deep.
Keystone is your perfect weekend ski resort when you want more than just a day on the slopes but aren’t going to take a weeklong vacation.
Here are several other reasons why Keystone is the best resort near Denver:
Save on gas, splurge on skiing
Thanks to its proximity to I-70, Keystone is an easy drive from Denver. With the money you’ll save on gas, sign up for ski or snowboarding lessons (we offer them for every ability level) or treat yourself to a sumptuous feast on Saturday night.
What you do with your money is up to you. We’ll just help you save it.
The best terrain park in the state
We’ve won awards from TransWorld Magazine and Freeskier Magazine for A51’s 100 features on 60 acres of pure Rocky Mountain goodness.
If rails and fun boxes are more your thing than slopes and bowls, Keystone is your top playground in the mountains near Denver.
Last-minute lodging to fit any skier’s lifestyle
If you like spontaneous getaways, you need a resort that’s equipped to handle last-minute reservations.
Keystone is just such a resort, with more than 1,200 lodging options. Chances are we’ll be able to find you the perfect room.
Award-winning dining just steps from the slopes.
We mentioned a feast earlier, and we’re not lying. We have award-winning restaurants with menus inspired by the local ingredients and the appetites of skiers like you.
Sit down to one of our meals and you’ll leave (reluctantly) with a full belly and a warm glow.
Access to a 10,000-square-foot spa
It’s easy to get buried in work, school or family activities during the week. When you escape to the mountains you get a retreat from stress.
That’s why we’ve created the perfect sanctuary for you to relax and cleanse before you head back to the big city.
Ski long after the sun goes down
We offer the longest ski day in North America! Many of our runs are open from 8:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m., so you can keep carving turns even after the sun goes down.
Plenty of other winter sports to keep you entertained
If you feel the need to take a break from skiing or riding, play at Adventure Point. With tubing, ski biking, a snow fort and more, this alpine adventure gives you the chance to kick back and goof off a little before hitting some serious back bowls.
Five back bowls for riders with skills
Speaking of bowls, we have enough to keep even the most experienced skier or snowboarder challenged all day long. Take a hike above The Outpost to the top of Keystone Peak and grab some first tracks in deep powder.
Keystone has an adventure for every type of guest, even the native Coloradan. At just under 90 minutes from Denver, you’ll be hearing the snow swishing underfoot before you know it.
