Travel Tips: Planning Your Family Ski Trip Around the Holidays

KEY6812_FamilyA family trip to Keystone during the Holiday’s is definitely exciting, but it can also be a hectic time to get away. There are many benefits for planning your trip to the mountains on non-Holiday weekends, and the memories will be just as special!

Lodging. Whether you’re looking for a room or a condo, Keystone has you covered! And you’ll save a lot on your family friendly accommodations when you visit on a non-Holiday weekend. Get away and have a quiet family evening in East, West, or North Keystone. Or if you’re a family on the go, Mountain House is close to the children’s ski school, a youth zone, shops, and dining. Check out all the lodging options to decide what’s perfect for your family. And remember, when you book 2 nights, kids 12 and under Ski Free!

Non-Holiday weekends are perfect for discovering all that Keystone has to offer, without waiting in long lines! You’ll get to the lifts quick, your family will be some of the few on the mountain, and you can get food in those hungry bellies faster! Enjoy your time having fun together instead of navigating through the crowds.

The family locations and events aren’t just for the Holiday weekends, they’re always at Keystone! Kidtopia has daily activities for the kids, like face painting, cookie hour, movies, a snowball launch, scavenger hunts, and Bigfoot Adventure Walk’s! You’ll also find the World’s LARGEST Snow Fort with slides and mazes at the top of Dercum Mountain. If you have an artist in the family, head to Ready Paint Fire, a paint your own art studio that offers pottery and canvas painting.


There are also plenty of opportunities to spend time on your own. Family Brunch at Bighorn Bistro has a kid’s table to give kids a vacation from their parents with games, entertainment and their very own buffet. Parents will enjoy a classic brunch that has a Bloody Mary bar and mimosa’s! There are also separate ski schools for kids and adults, so everyone in the family can get the experience and lessons they need.
