Keystone has great skiing. But--Why go there? Here's what a typical weekend day consists of. Drive real slow through town, (because you didn't come over Loveland pass. Where you would have passed by Arapahoe Basin and should have stopped and skied in the first place.)park your car in one of the three or four dozen lots strategically placed as far away from the lift area as humanly possible, change clothes in your car because it's 4 bucks to rent a locker the size of a man purse, walk from lot ZZ to lot A in your ski boots. Or wait half an hour for a bus that's always late and overcrowded with nauseating color coordinated skiers that makes you feel like puking. By the time you get there your so f*****g tired and angry at yourself for deciding that this would be a good place to go. After all, I've heard from so many skiers when I was at a Starbucks getting my 3$ cup of mud that this is "truely where the skiers ski", not Copper Mountain (that area's another story friends) You'll find that your boots have been worn down on the toes and heels so much that your bindings won't set anymore. And guess what? You get to walk up hill to the ticket office to purchase your 80$ ticket! Don't forget to bring your credit card. Because you can't stuff that much money you'll need into your wallet for the day of joyous activities that lie ahead for you and your loved ones who will surely remember you for this come next Christmas. Maybe you've read some of my other reviews about other Colorado ski areas. I'm not a bitch. But this place was without a doubt, the worst ski area besides Chuchura Valley,Howelson Hill and Hogodon Mountain I've ever skied. If you have any enemies you'd really like to stick it to, tell them to go to Keystone "You'll really like it. It's a way of life) FZ
