- NEW! Private Family LessonsWhether your family is new to skiing and snowboarding or you’re seasoned snow veterans, those looking to develop new
skills, improve technique or explore the mountain like never before can enjoy a family private lesson together. Taking advantage of shared on-snow time, bonding is just an added bonus to these specially designed lessons. Private lessons can be reserved for up to six family members (or friends) of similar ability, and with instructors who specialize in working with the whole family you can rest assured that everyone’s ski and snowboard needs will be met on the snow. A family private lesson at Keystone is the perfect way to create memories together and take your shared passion to the next level, so this new product is a can’t-miss for snow-loving families.
- Let it Snow: Snow Making Improvements
More than 10 different snowmaking projects were completed to repair, upgrade and enhance Keystone’s snowmaking system, including the replacement of a primary water supply pump and upgrades to key electrical systems. While largely unseen, these efforts provide guests with the best possible product and one of the earliest openings in all of Colorado.
- Women’s Ultimate 4 Lesson Experience
In its second season, the Women’s Ultimate 4 program provides the ultimate convenience for mothers who might have children in ski school or ladies simply looking to enjoy a leisurely morning. This small group ski lesson takes place from 12:45 p.m. to 3:15 p.m., offers a prime learning environment for up to four women, and is led by an experienced female instructor from the Keystone Ski & Ride School. In these lessons women can learn or brush up on their skiing or snowboarding skills, from the foundation-building basics of a first-timer class, to navigating the easiest greens, to sharing tactics and camaraderie on the resort’s beginner and intermediate trails, the nurturing and encouraging setting is just one reason these lessons are already a guest favorite. Additionally, all Women’s Ultimate 4 lessons are offered with a Buy Two Get One Free option. The Women’s Ultimate 4 lesson is offered during peak periods throughout the winter, including Dec. 26-31; Feb. 12-20; and March 5-27.
- Kidtopia: Bigger & Better Than EVER
