Looking For A Ski Resort Close To Denver?

Minimize your drive, maximize your weekend.Snowy Peaks at Keystone

It's Thursday night in Denver. You want to plan a ski trip for this weekend, but you don't have a lot of time to be driving all over the state.  As beautiful as Colorado is, there are only so many hours in the day.

How can you shoot up I-70 quickly and still get in the kind of skiing that will make even your GoPro say "Dang, that was good"?

Answer: Keystone. With world-class terrain, top-rated amenities, and plenty of lodging options, it's really no surprise that it continues to be a favorite of the locals.

Let’s take a look at Keystone’s secret sauce.

With 131 trails, 235 inches of snow, more than 3,000 skiable acres, and 20 lifts, Keystone delivers a truly world-class mountain experience, all within a short drive from Denver and the Front Range.

Oh yeah, we've also got A51, the top ranked terrain park in the state and one of the best in the country.

River Run Lodging


Where To Stay

Even for last-minute trips, the Keystone reservations staff and mountain concierge make it easy to book lodging, dining and activities, so you’re free to focus on your perfect weekend in the mountains.

Keystone has over 1,200 lodging options, which means even late-comers can find a lodging arrangement that’s just right.

Check out just a few of the options:

River Run Village offers a multitude of condos all within walking distance of the new 8-passenger River Run Gondola. When your first trip up the hill in the morning is inside a warm gondola you’ll never want to stay anywhere else.

Even better, at the day's end when your skiing and riding is over this village moves at full tilt. All of your senses will be engaged with lively festivals, street parties, nightlife, restaurants, shops, and boutiques.

And you'll definitely want to ride the River Run Gondola to Alpenglow Stube, the "highest gourmet, top rated Zagat Survey, AAA Four Diamond rated, Wine Spectator award-winning restaurant in North America."Lakeside Village

In the heart of Lakeside Village, Keystone Lake boasts the largest Zamboni-maintained outdoor skating rink in North America. Join a pick up hockey game or just glide around the ice.

Complete with holiday lights and festive music, this picturesque setting is one of the best spots to snap that perfect family photo you’ll admire for years.

Whether gliding on ice skates, paddling a canoe or dining on-the-waterfront in Edgewater Café, every vantage point satisfies.

To the east is the spectacle of the Continental Divide and to the west, the Gore Range. Complimenting this waterscape is the nearby Spa at Keystone Lodge.

Relax at the Keystone Spa


Relax At Your Own Pace


Sometimes it's so nice to stay out a little later and, in turn, sleep in a little later the next day. Keystone offers not only the largest night skiing operation in Colorado but the longest ski day as well, operating from 8:30 AM all the way to 8 PM.

Feel free to enjoy the night because you've got extra time to start your day on the mountain whenever you like. You’ll still get a full day in.

And if those muscles give out on you after all that skiing, then you can always relax in style - spa style that is!  There’s no better way to make a quick weekend getaway feel like a real vacation than an afternoon of pure relaxation for the body and soul.

And with our 10,000 square foot luxury spa located in the Keystone Lodge you’ll have all the amenities you’re looking for and some that will be sure to surprise you as well.
