Keystone Ski Area
Opening Day November 4, 2015
When Max Dercum founded Keystone back in 1970, along with his wife Edna, he knew how much fun it was to slide down snowy mountains on a pair of skis. He knew the feeling was even better with a smile on your face, next to friends and family, in a beautiful spot high above the rest of the world. Come to Keystone and find out for yourself why Max was so right, and why one of the three mountains here is named after him. You can find the perfect line, let gravity do its work, and never let go of that smile. Keystone is also the only ski area in the county to offer night skiing!
