Further down the road from Keystone, A-Basin features most types of terrain in a compact resort. The end result is a no frills, uncrowded, FUN, resort that allows you to take the same run many different ways, hike for some great off-piste action, and all while enjoying some of the best views in the state. When you need a breather, the mid-mountain lodge is easily accessed, and has literally the best sweet potato fries I've ever had.
