THE HOLIDAYS AT KEYSTONE RESORT

Plan a Holiday to remember and enjoy great savings!
Holidays, Keystone Colorado

Our seemingly endless winter activities add that extra touch of magic to your Holiday getaway.

Insider's Tip: Many activities have limited inventory and do sell out, particularly during the Holiday time frame. We encourage guests to make reservations prior to arrival to ensure desired outlets and time slots are available. Get ready to play!

Dinner & Scenic Sleigh Rides
Go dashing through the snow on a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Explore the historical Soda Creek Valley while being enchanted with tales of yesteryear. It's an adventure for the whole family.

Snow Tubing at Adventure Point
Relive your childhood while making new memories at Keystone’s mountaintop tubing hill. Go faster and further on our multi-lane hill. Unlike old-fashioned sledding, we even provide a lift ride back up for more runs per hour! Children must be 36” tall to participate, but an adjacent free children’s tubing hill lets little ones in on the fun!

World's Largest Snow Fort
Let your imagination run wild as you climb, slide, and explore our incredible mountaintop snow fort! A perfect addition to a visit to the tubing hill or mountaintop family adventure tour.

Mountaintop Family Adventure Tours
Take a snowcat ride to the highest peaks of Keystone. Breathtaking views of the Continental Divide, Ten Mile Range, and the Gore Range are just a part of the fun, which is perfect for all ages!

Ice Skating
Keystone's two ice skating venues offer opportunities to twirl under the sun or the stars. Take a lap around the Dercum Square Ice Rink in River Run Village, or delight in 5-acres of frozen fun on Keystone Lake in the Lakeside Village.

Snowshoe & Cross Country Ski at the Keystone Nordic Center
Explore the natural winter wonderland that Keystone is so luck to call home. Enjoy the peaceful retreat of the White River National Forest. Rental equipment and lessons available. The Keystone Nordic Center also offers an "old fashion" children's tubing hill.
