Keystone Ski Area

In the world of skiing, there are ski areas, and then there are ski resorts. Not every mountain with a chairlift and a lodge fits that “resort” descriptor. But Keystone definitely does. Keystone is designed to deliver an all-inclusive experience for both die-hard skiers and everyone else, too. It’s got the spas, the dining, the hotels, and all the other amenities that it takes to make that ski vacation your best ever. And it’s definitely got the skiing to put you to bed happy and tired every night. With over 3,000 acres of skiing, and 135 named runs, it’s easy to spend a week at Keystone without repeating the same run twice. And 20 lifts make getting around the mountain a breeze.

James Niehues captured the scale of the resort best in this Keystone ski map. You can catch glimpses of the surrounding mountain range, as well as the base area and amenities. So, if you like skiing, but understand that it’s not the only thing that makes a ski vacation worthwhile, you understand the draw of Keystone.
