Drrrum roll please! Returning this year, Keystone will host the World’s Largest Mountaintop Snow Fort on top of Dercum Mountain. Plus, we’ll have a second Snow Fort experience at the Mountain House Base Area to double the fun for the whole family.

High atop Dercum Mountain, a wonderous place known as Adventure Point offers up to eight lanes of high-speed snow tubing action. In the valley below, go dashing through the snow aboard one of our scenic horse-drawn sleighs to an original Keystone homestead where hot cider awaits. Take a spin or practice your best triple axel while ice skating across the beautiful 5-acre Keystone Lake. And, find a haven for outdoor recreation at the Keystone Nordic Center with 10 miles of groomed trails for cross-country skiing, skate skiing and snowshoeing.
