Winter is off to a great start at Keystone Resort!

Winter is off to a great start at Keystone Resort!

We’re now a week into the 2013 – 2014 season and we can honestly say that conditions are great at Keystone. There are 2 top to bottom trails open, Spring Dipper and Schoolmarm, which also happen to be two of Keystone’s signature trails, and the A51 Terrain Park is open with about 22 features on the Scout trail. Great features for everyone from beginner to advanced skiers and riders. The snow conditions are great with some fresh snow from mother nature at the beginning of the week and sunny skies for the weekend. 

Our shop is all ready to go for the season and the last of our new fleet is getting mounted and is ready to be used. We’ve got a new fleet of performance skis, Salomon’s with rocker, and some great new demo skis including Volkl RTM 81’s, Kendo’s and the Chiara Women’s and K2 A.M.P. Velocity M3, A.M.P. 80x, Shreditor-Pedditor, Superfree ER3 Women’s and the Superglide ERC Women’s. We historically have only had 1 model for women but due to an increase in guests asking for more women’s models, we decided on getting some top of the line models in. The Superfree and the Superglide both won Gold Medals from Ski Magazine for being the best women’s skis around. Make sure to  reserve our rental skis online, come on up, see the newly remodeled shop and enjoy a great day of skiing with your friends at Keystone. See you soon!
