Keystone Ski Vacation

Mar 20, 2008
Keystone offers the finest night skiing in Colorado with lights on fifteen different slopes and a great terrain park. Night skiing starts at 4 pm and ends at 10 pm.

All of the night skiing at keystone is on the front face of the mountain featuring great runs like the spring dipper. The Keystone Gondola will service most of the night skiing.

The spring dipper is a great long fast groomer with great high speed turns which makes the spring dipper a night skiing favorite. The frenchman is a great groomer which you can carve the most perfect turns, with ease and the big rollers will allow you to take flight if you want this. Always remember to give the right away to slower skiers and always ride in complete control. Your life and others are all always at risk when alpine skiing, so please be careful

The Keystone terrain park offers many different types of rails, boxes and jumps. Some of the ski jumps are huge, so be careful and be sure to go big! If you fall short of the downhill, you'll regret it. You can spend hours of time jumping and riding the rails in the Keystone terrain park, but please don't forget about the rest of the mountain, I promise there are other super fun ski runs for you to enjoy.

The Outback at Keystone ski resort offers amazing views and so much more. The outback express is the only lift which services this beautiful region which includes the north bowl and some of the best tree runs in Colorado. Conquest and the victory chutes are on the north facing slope of the mountain. This means the snow will stay relatively soft which makes it a lot easier to make those important carves through the trees. When you get to the top of the Outback Express, go left and you'll be guaranteed soft snow. If you go right on a sunny day, you'll be skiing on crust.

The runs on the South facing side (right off the lift) are my favorite tree runs in Summit county. I suggest you wait for a powder day to experience the South side. The trees are so evenly spaced and the hill is at a favorable pitch. Out of Breckenridge, A Basin, Vail and Beaver Creek, the Outback is my personal favorite place to ski in the trees.

The north bowl is accessible by snow cat, it only costs five dollars, which I believe is quite reasonable for such a beautiful view of the continental divide. If you are interested in free you can always hike the peak which only takes one hour to hike. You can also hike about fifteen minutes and still get a fresh line of powder. Each run from the 15 minute hike offers beautifully gladed forest with a long traverse at the bottom. If you are snowboarding, be sure to get speed at the bottom.

There is a great groomer which, runs right under the Outback Express ski lift. It has plenty of room for you to carve those gnarly turns. This run has a perfect pitch for moguls. Stay skiers right at top of lift for a mogul field all the way down the right side of the groomer. These moguls are great to learn on. For the best skiing in keystone make sure you head to the outback. You won't be disappointed.
