Your dog may have played in the snow before, but they’ve never played in THIS much snow! With an annual snowfall of 235 inches (that’s about 10 Golden Retrievers tall) we are talking serious snow play. Serious. Snow. Play. Like endless amounts of snowballs to chase after, mounds of snow to jump through miles of trails to travel and endless amounts fun.
What does our picturesque Keystone Lake turn into each winter? The largest Zamboni maintained outdoor skating rink in North America! While your dog can’t skate across it, the two of you can walk around the lake taking in the magnificent mountain views and magical holiday sights and sounds.
