Winter is here! We have received over 5 feet of snow so far this month – already the snowiest January since 2000 (or the 6th snowiest January ever)! Just like every year, Spring Break and Spring Skiing will be here before you know it. With sunshine and plenty of snow, it’s the perfect time to enjoy Keystone Resort. From powder days, to perfectly groomed runs to family ski and ride zones, three unique peaks, and five powder-filled bowls; Keystone has terrain for everyone.
What sets Keystone apart from the other spring vacation destinations? Simple: at Keystone, we try to do things with a twist. Or, with a twist & turn of a slide.
Here are the top 5 ways that families can Slide into Spring at Keystone:
- Slide into Spring Snow
Keystone is primed for excellent spring skiing and riding conditions. March and April offer the chance to enjoy plentiful soft snow, sunny afternoons and late-season powder days, all perfect for creating lifelong family experiences in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Keystone’s night skiing is the longest ski day in Colorado, and will be available daily for most of the month of March, allowing guests to take advantage of longer days and providing the opportunity for unforgettable sunset turns. Keystone is the perfect place to slide on snow this spring!
- Slide into Ski SchoolWarmer days and softer snow make spring a perfect time to take advantage of Keystone’s Ski & Ride School, offering a variety of programming options for every level of skier and rider. At Camp Keystone, kids don’t just walk out of a door to start their day on snow. No way, kids at Keystone have the ultimate entrance to their lesson: a 24-foot slide from inside the building to the adventure that awaits on the snow! Hoping to spend more quality time as a family on your vacation? Family Private Lessons provide up to six family members more shared time on-snow, bonding while developing new skills, improving technique or exploring the mountain like never before.
- Slide into Mountain Adventures
Mountaintop snow tubing delights those of all ages, with six lanes of speed-filled downhill thrills and a conveyor lift to provide easy access for continued laps. Snow tubing is just one of many additional winter activities available at Keystone, as guests can enjoy the allure of the mountains through horse-drawn sleigh rides, mountaintop snowcat tours, ice skating, snowbiking and much more.
- Slide into Family FunSitting atop Dercum Mountain at 11,640-feet elevation, the world’s largest snow fort has become a staple of Keystone’s Kidtopia program. The snow fort features numerous slides, mazes, and the perfect photo opportunity. Kidtopia activities complement any visit to the resort, as kids of all ages, including those young at heart, can enjoy a variety of daily programming throughout the winter season, including parades, fireworks, snowball launches and family snow tubing. With the majority of Kidtopia events free of charge for all participants, creative daily programming is just another way Keystone continues to add value to the family mountain experience.
- Slide Into Savings
Splash into savings with lodging discounts of up to 30 percent throughout the remainder of the season on Keystone’s numerous lodging accommodations, including properties with outdoor heated pools and hot tubs – the perfect end to a day on the slopes. The Springs, one of our favorite family-friendly accommodations, features an outdoor slide into pool! Keystone offers hotel rooms to condos and townhomes that range in size from studio to four-bedroom, with most including full-sized kitchens, and all easily accessible to the mountain. Plus, any stay of two nights or more includes free lift tickets for all children 12 and younger through Keystone’s Kids Ski Free Program.
