Join Lone Star as it heads Keystone, CO for TSC’s Traditional Trip. We kick off our 2020 Ski Season by offering both a Long and Short trip. Keystone has 3 distinct mountains to ski.
Founded in 1970 by Max Dercum and his wife Edan, and their friends Bill and Jane Bergman, Keystone was, and still is, all about the fun of sliding down a snowy mountain, with family and friends, in a beautiful spot high above the rest of the world.
There is so much to do a Keystone besides top notch skiing – snowshoeing, snow tubing, night skiing, dog sledding, ice skating, winter Zip-lining, snow mobiles, sleigh rides, even Ice Castles at Silverthorne, shopping are among the many options available! You can even have a drink on a sunny patio or in an Adirondack chair. Colorado is known for 300 days of sunshine and BEAUTIFUL winter days.
Keystone’s base elevation is 9,280 ft with a summit elevation of 12,408 ft. The vertical at 3,128 ft will help burn those thighs! The 128 trails of diverse terrain (for all ski levels) stretch over 3,148 acres and are serviced by 20 lifts. The longest trail is Schoolmarm at a mere 3.5 miles. While the average snowfall is approximately 235 inches, Keystone also has snow-making on 662 acres.
Besides the 3 main peaks, you also have access to Independence, Bergman, Erickson, North and South bowls offering skiers access to secret stashes, tree runs and powder laps across more than 1,000 acres. Terrain in North and South Bowl is easily accessible via a short hike off the top of the Outback Express Lift. Don't feel like hiking? A $10 (cash only) shuttle ride on The Outback's snowcat provides easy and convenient access to terrain in North and South Bowl.
