Keystone Resort is just a quick hour-and-a-half drive from Denver International Airport and well worth it as the largest ski resort in Summit County. With terrain ranging from beginner to advanced spread across 3,148 skiable acres, three distinct mountain peaks, 20 lifts and two gondolas, Keystone also offers up terrain park and cat skiing options to suit the full skier/snowboarder spectrum.

The ski area is home to multiple world-class restaurants, luxury spas, a wide array of accommodations, excellent shopping and two unique villages to explore. The resort is also known for being a great family destination, with activities for all ages and the largest night skiing operation in Colorado.

Keystone Resort is spread across three mountain peaks and boasts great tree skiing, wide open groomers, access to cat skiing, five mountain bowls and Colorado's most expansive night skiing operation. Keystone also contains the A51 Terrain Park, one of the best in the country with more than 100 features and 60 acres to get your style on.

The ski resort's three mountains are Dercum, North Peak and The Outback. Dercum Mountain has long green and blue runs that are perfectly groomed and a great place for beginners and intermediates to explore. North peak is home to long mogul trails, intermediate groomers and some expert terrain. The Outback is Keystone's tallest peak and provides advanced and expert skiers and riders with a plethora of terrain possibilities. Be sure to check out Keystone Adventure Tours to access some of the ski area's best terrain via the comfort of a heated snow cat.

Keystone is also a great option for skiers and snowboarders looking for an easy day trip from Denver. The resort is in close proximity to I-70 and accessible over Loveland Pass or through the Eisenhower Tunnel.
