First, beware of their parking lot:it is awful.Now to riding, Keystone was a blast. It doesn't take a long time to memorize all the runs it has to offer Most runs take a long time to get down to the bottom so you aren't spending all your time on a chairlift. It is a very popular tourist spot though. When we go during March there are always tons of people on weekdays and even more on the weekend. So if you plan to go there during spring break season avoid holiday riding UNLESS you go to the 3rd mountain on the back. I would recommend taking the Outpost Gondola and taking a blue or black down to the Outback Express. The express is a little slow but very scenic and there us usually no one there so if you are searching for some leftover powder that's the place to do it. You don't have to worry about kids, people trying to learn, or crazy boarders. Night skiing is a trip too. That was a lot of fun as long as it isn't too cold.
