Reviews for Keystone
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Something wrong with the pass system. No guarantee your pass won’t get stolen even if you have your pass and they won’t do anything about it if it does. I can look at my lift scans and even when I was on the mountain my pass was being scanned on the wrong side of the mountain. It is a messed up, broken and vulnerable system.
The mountain is pretty and I enjoyed boarding but I won’t come back after the issues I have had with my pass.... Full Review
See cons above. Having lifts down on peak weekend in the middle of the day is not acceptable for what fees they charge. Ridiculous. Also not enough bathrooms. Why walk past 6 buildings with no facilities? Add more options... Full Review
Only 16% of the slopes were open, but Epic did not limit number of passes, so slopes were very crowded with mostly beginner skiers, tons of little kids. Beginner skiers were skiing out of control on blue slopes that were too difficult for them at River Run. Beginners should be skiing on the nice beginner slopes at Mt. House area. Terrible ski resort for intermediate or advanced skiers because of beginners. Ski patrols do not monitor families who are on the wrong slopes. ... Full Review
Great views and great for having fun on long blues, not the best snow in the front range, but best snowmaking in CO. Terrain flow isnt the best, but relatively small village is nice and cozy. Great value.... Full Review
The snow here is very bad compared to most other resorts in colorado. Although i went here in spring, it was still very icy on some runs, they have the snowmaking potential, and they should live up to it. When it isn't icy this resort is an intermediate, expert paradise.... Full Review
Keystone is a great mountain, and I learned to ski there, however, they make their park smaller, and the “family” runs are really dangerous. This place markets themselves as a beginner mountain, but it’s a horrible place to learn to ski unless you’re a kid like I was. Other than that, pretty cool mountain and town, just sometimes you can’t get over the cons... Full Review
The “seasoned lift operator” at the top of Santiago wasn’t paying attention. Never stopped or slowed down the lift when a child fell getting off, then after two adults fell(my mother and I) trying to maneuver around the child he still didn’t stop it causing my mother to get hit in the back of the head by the chair lift as it headed back down the mountain. This resulted in her receiving 11 staples in the back of her head and nothing but avoidance from Vail Corporate. We’ve been skiing here for 10 years, they are always paying attention and go above and beyond for their guests. Maybe COVID has made them off their game because this should have NEVER been allowed to happen. The lift operators were not paying attention and the hospital actually allowed my mother (with a concusion) to walk out by herself without anyone attending to her and blood still coming down her head. They didn’t even try to clean her up before applying the staples and sending her on her way. The resort is siding with the lift operators of course who say my husbands snowboard hit my mother in the back of the head. (Which is impossible, he stayed on the lift or he would have fell on top of us). I witnessed her getting hit in the head then I had to duck to not get hit myself. Why they hadn’t stopped it at this point is beyond me because people were yelling for someone to stop the lift. Disgusting and disappointing. Sadly we will never be returning to ski here....

First time skiing at Keystone!! I LOVED IT!!! And I Love The Snowboarders too! BUT..... NOT ALL, but a Very Lot Of The Snowboarders are on the beginning runs and boarding Out Of Control!!!! There are families and tiny kids! It’s uncalled for! And they sit in the middle of the runs which is ridiculous.... move over to the side if your going to just sit there! But the experience was Amazing!... Full Review
I had to respond to the snowboarders who complain about their passes being pulled. I watched their video where they admit they were on SchoolMarm. That is a BEGINNER RUN and a specially protected Beginner Run and yes, it is marked. I love to go fast myself- but NEVER on SchoolMarm or any other beginner run. And these guys were coming way to close to other skiers/boarders who have to be assumed to be Beginners. Even if you think you aren't going fast to Beginners you are terrifying! Boarders, this is why you get bad reps. Try Lower GoDevil if you want speed and you dare! Not many Beginners are going to try to tackle GoDevil.... Full Review
Keystone has always been our number one place to go to. Love the night skiing and the day, can't ask for anything else, would like to see more actives during the season. more actives during the summer!!!!!!!!!!... Full Review
