The countdown to the end of the ski season is on! Spring is in the air and with roughly 30 days left until Keystone’s closing day on April 12th it’s time to reflect on what you want accomplish before the season ends. While aggressive dreams of 100+ ski days may be dashed, there is still plenty of time to grab a few more days, improve your style and have a ton of fun.
7. One last powder day
Spring skiing is known for its warm sunny days, but did you also know March is known for being one of the snowiest months of the year? It’s a perfect time of year to enjoy some fresh snow. Watch our snow cam and sign up for alerts to be the first to know when it’s snowing in Keystone! #KeyPow
6. First chair to rip through some corduroy
Powder days aren’t the only reason to wake up early. Experience the sensation of ripping through fresh corduroy! After a few good runs take a break, lay back and catching some rays at La Bontes Smokehouse or celebrate the turns you earned with a nice cold beer or Red Bull. Tip from experience: Wear sunscreen and reapply!
5. Watch the sun set while night skiing
There is a theme going on – get more skiing in! Night skiing isn’t just about getting a few more runs in under the lights, it’s also a great way to experience the warm spring sun for a few more hours or enjoy the moment as the sun sets behind the Rocky Mountains. Bonus: When you book lodging through KeystoneResort.com you get free night skiing on your day of arrival!

3. Join in on the spring time fun
April brings two of our most fun events back to the mountain, Redbull Schlittentag & Slush Cup! Schlittentag pits teams of three to stretch their imagination to build the wildest, fastest sled this side of the Alps. One will be the pilot and the two others will help give their sled the push it needs to win the race and the fame and fortune that follows. Slush Cup is the annual end of season party, watch the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat as skiers and riders compete for awesome prizes by skimming across a pond strapped to a snowboard or clicked into skis. This thrilling spectator event offers top-notch entertainment that showcases crazy costumes, impressive falls, great commentary and a chance to have one last hoorah at Keystone Resort.
