Check out the Events Calendar to see what upcoming events are happening during the time you plan your trip.
Keystone Ski Resort
If planning on staying at the resort, you can take advantage of the Keystone Resort Shuttle Service, which offers complimentary rides for all Keystone guests. The shuttles pick up approximately every ten to twenty minutes to take passengers to local restaurants, lodges, shopping and the slopes. It is a service that we highly recommend taking advantage of to easily navigate the resort.
Hidden River Lodge
For lodging, there are many different options available. From hotels to lodges, condos to bed and breakfast spots, there is a option for a family of any size.
We reserved a unit at the Hidden River Lodge, a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo with 2 deck areas and an outdoor grill. It included underground parking and storage lockers in the garage, perfect for our skis.
There was also a shared hot tub outside on the community deck. Although it was closed during our stay, with the views surrounding the deck area, it would be a spectacular way to end a day of skiing!
Keystone Grocery Delivery
Not even a second after settling into the Lodge, the kids were ready for food. If traveling with teens or tweens like us, you know that keeping the house full of food is a necessity.
For the ease of meal planning and to save money we chose to have the groceries delivered versus eating at a restaurant for every meal.
We used our Vacation Meal Planning Template, ordered the groceries and were stocking the shelves and fridge in less than an hour.
Colorado Ski Towns
We could not wait to tackle the slopes of Keystone mountain during our visit. We spent majority of our trip on the trails – everyone had a blast!
There were trails with beginner runs as well as advanced terrain. Keystone is definitely a ski town that offers the opportunity to ski regardless of your prior experience.
The resort does offer lessons from world class instructions if you are a bit hesitate or want to build up your skills before hitting the slopes.
Next to Keystone you’ll find many other Colorado ski towns. Here are a few to consider if planning a longer trip or looking to venture out of our Keystone for a bit.
- Winter Park
- Steamboat Springs
When it is time to take a break from skiing or the family is ready for a new adventure, River Run is a shopping district that is by the gondola on the far left side of the mountain.
The village is filled with many amenities to explore. Visit any of the retail shops or enjoy a delicious meal at one of the local restaurants. A trip to River Run can make for a relaxing and fun day or evening with the family.
Between exploring the lodge, ski lifts and River Run, our trip to Keystone was packed yet super relaxing. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Colorado.
As you continue your planning to Keystone, we hope you take advantage of everything there is to offer. Have fun and safe travels once you hit the road or hop on a plane!
