Navigating the Six Terrain Parks at Keystone
As with anything in life, when you start freeskiing or riding, you have to start at the bottom and work your way to the top. Or in the case of A51, start at Easy Street and work your way up to Main Street.
With over 100 features, A51 is the place where riders of any level can find progressive features set in five terrain parks complete with its own chairlift.
Here's a look at each of the A51 Terrain Parks:
Beginner: Easy Street
If this is your first encounter with a box, rail or a jump, start here. Get comfortable with your board or skis touching plastic and metal instead of snow. Easy Street starts mellow with ride-on features that help you progress to the last set of features to prepare you for I-70 and The Alley. The jumps will get you off the ground and allow you to work up to bigger and bigger air as your comfort level increases.
Intermediate: Park Lane, I-70, The Alley
Cruise into I-70 with an assortment of rails, boxes and jumps. The first jump in lower I-70 starts where the last jump in Easy Street left off and progressively gets bigger. By the time you clear the last I-70 jump and conquer new tricks, you are ready to head to Park Lane.
Welcome to Park Lane. A quick moving jump line split into upper and lower that's perfect for building your confidence as you dial in tricks. Upper Park Lane features a three pack to build your confidence. Lower Park Lane helps finish up those tricks with the opportunity to hit the Quarterpipe or jibs in-between jump laps. Located near Peru lift, this jump line receives quite the applause when you throw style and ease in the air.
The Alley is a true jibber's delight. If you've been dreaming of your skis and boards hitting metal all day, The Alley is the park for you. A true skate style park, you create the line and we put plenty of features in place for your tricks to fill up an edit or a whole season. The Alley keeps your jibbing in check with more technical features.
The new 15 ft minipipe can be found in lower I-70.
Advanced: Main Street
Welcome to the stomping grounds for pro level skiers and riders. Main Street features our largest jump line with three sets perfect for landing tricks that are heading to the biggest competitions in freeskiing and snowboarding. With a chairlift audience watching your every move, this is the perfect spot for dialing in new tricks that'll guarantee you a medal, cash prize or podium finish.
