Spring Skiing

Last "Bud" Not Least: Spring Skiing!

With spring in full bloom, we’re turning over a new leaf from snowy days to sunny skies! One of the best times of the season is savoring the very last of it, with longer days and softer turns. So, what’s growing on in Keystone this spring? (Okay, we’re done with the puns now.)

Spring Operations:

As we transition to our spring operations, lift opening hours will move to 9 am starting on April 3 (instead of 8:30 am). We plan to operate all 3 peaks up until our closing day on April 16th, weather and conditions depending. Additionally, to prepare for our end of season Springtastic Closing Weekend, Packsaddle Bowl, Go Devil, Richter, Haywood and Last Hoot will close for the season on April 10th.


Find your beach!

One word: Labonte's. Head down Mozart or North Peak to find aoasis in our Mountain Playground. Labonte’s Beach is a classic and a fan favoriteso grab a bite of BBQ, a beverage, and hang out on some Adirondack chairs to soak up the sun and work that goggle tan!

At the end of the day head down to Mountain House where our spring vibes thrive. With additional sunshine, you have plenty of time to post up on the deck and enjoy the view! Head inside to check out Last Lift Bar for the party or grab a bite at Go Big Burger before hitting the road.


Going out with a bang!

Just because the season is winding down, doesn’t mean we are. Join us on April 15th and 16th for our Springtastic Closing Weekend! Enjoy live music and prizes all weekend long. On Saturday the 15thtear it up at our annual Rail Jam competition. Or make a splash on Sunday the 16th at our Pond Skim. Plus, fun-sized skimmers can compete in our kids’ pool – the only kids’ pond skim in town! Costumes are not required, but they are greatly encouraged.

More information on the Rail Jam and Pond Skim can be found here.

Final call!

Make sure you check out some of our greatest mountaintop offerings before the end of the season, like our World’s Largest Mountaintop Snow Fort. Complete with frozen slides, tunnels and a photo-friendly ice cave, the Snow Fort, located at the top of Dercum Mountain, is the coolest way to chill out as temps rise this spring (ok, actually the last pun, we promise). The Snow Fort will stay open as cold temps and conditions last!


Get your final hike up to Bergman and Erickson Bowl! Our expansive bowls with 360 views of the Front Range and Ten Mile Range will also be open till the end of the season. You can catch your final shuttle cat ride or get in your last steps before the arrival of the Bergman Express Lift. This all-new lift will be in place for the 2023-24 winter season, making our high alpine terrain and bowl skiing even more accessible.


The days are longer, the temps are higher, and we’re loving every second of it! Don’t forget to come celebrate spring and when you go, make sure to say HAGS (have a great summer)!
