PLAY PAST YOUR BEDTIME

When you vacation at Keystone, rest-assured that the fun doesn't end when the sun goes down. In the winter, treat yourself and your family to après-ski specials, unique dinner experiences, and night skiing beneath the stars. In the summer, the fun continues until the sun goes down (which is pretty late!)

 

The day may be long, but that just gives you more time to get everything in! The yummiest of dining and some days hike and bike until 8 pm. 
Night time at Keystone is anything but sleepy. Ice skate on Keystone Lake, dash through the snow on a horse-drawn sleigh, take two gondolas back to dinner or just sip cocoa by the fire.

Night Skiing

Stay Up Past Your Bedtime, Keystone Ski Resort, Colorado

Stop daydreaming of night skiing and come enjoy the longest ski day in all of Colorado.  At Keystone, families can "ski late ‘til 8" on multiple lighted trails during the weekends and peak holiday periods. 

It’s the perfect way to get in a few more laps. Besides, counting turns is way more fun than counting sheep.

Guide to having a perfect night skiing experience:

1) Watch the sunset from the summit for a true bucket list moment. Keystone has some of the most gorgeous sunsets around, and is the only place where carve turns atop a mountain as they happen.

2) Warm up between laps with hot cocoa from the Summit House.

3) Be sure to dress in layers since it gets quite a bit colder once the Colorado sun goes down.

4) Ski and ride past your bedtime with a free night skiing lift ticket when you book two nights lodging through KeystoneResort.com. This is the perfect warm up for your week of skiing and snowboarding at Keystone.
