Keystone Reviews & Tips (14)

We purchased lift tickets and ski rental through liftopia this year. It ended up being the best deal and was very convenient getting your stuff right at Mountain House ... and then returning it right there. There was some additional insurance cost on skis when we got there that I wasn't expecting. We love skiing Keystone and we stay at Liftside which is very convenient ... short walk right to the lift.

My family and I went to Keystone for Christmas and had the BEST time. I rented our equipment from Mountain View Sports online prior to our trip and they took excellent care of us. Everything was ready for us when we got there. I was given brand new skis. My older son tried snowboarding and after one time down the mountain, did not like it. Mountain View switched him to skis in no time at all so that he could get back out on the slopes. My youngest son switched to skis after about two days and they reimbursed us the difference. I got my poles switched with someone else and ended up with two different poles and they switched those out without charging me for my obvious lack of supervision. Just an all around great experience. I could tell that they were really in the business of ensuring that we had the best time possible. That is the only place I will rent my equipment!! As for our condo, it was great with a perfect view of the main slope. Can't wait to go back.

Yeah Sang-Hyuk Jin, I am from Oklahoma and my family have traveled to Colorado for about twenty years now. And I lived there for a couple seasons. Keystone is my favorite mt. The price on lifts have gone up to about $90. But A-Basin is Right down the road and I believe they are $50. If you are going to be there for very longer than five days you might look into a season pass. And It sounds like Joe up there had a bad experience but my family love Mountain Veiw Sport and have been nothing but helpful for about six years now. And they are the cheapest in town for what you get. Just remember that you get what you pay for so go with the upper level Packages. Its worth it. Your feet and legs will thank you.

WOW--Loved my ski experience last weekend at Keystone. We rented from Mountain View Sports and had terrific equipment--they are the friendliest and most knowledgable ski shop I have experienced! If you are going to Keystone, I recommend renting from Mountain View Sports!!!

Keystone is a great ski area with plenty of skiing for all ski abilities. Only downside to keystone is the lack of decent grocery stores. You have to go 10 minutes down the street to Dillon for a good grocery store. The other downside is extremely expensive lunches on the mountain.

I Purchased night skiiing tickets from Liftopia. Our family enjoyed the night skiing, but there isnot any guarantee that the mountain will be open. The night before we were there the mountain closed at 6, so the people who purchased night ski tickets were only able to ski for 2 hours, and Keystone will NOT compensate with any type of discount if they close early. I dont think I will by tickets in advance to Keystone again, because you are taking a chance weather they stay open or not.

I enjoyed doing the night ski at Keystone but just be prepared that they might close early if its cold out and they will not issue you any kindof refund or discount for it. So if you purchase a night lift ticket and they close at 6:00 you're just out of luck. They also closed the terrain park at 5 instead of 6 and that really bummed my son out. The skiing was fun but there are no guarantees.

The night tickets for Keystone are one of the best deals around PLUS you beat the crowds at that time! The resort has a charm to it and the gondola ride up makes for a comfortable break in between runs. There's several choices of food and beverages for all pocket books and the transit from the Denver area is fairly short. We love Keystone!

I always enjoy Keystone more than Breck. Less lift lines plus if you arrive late you can ski until 8pm and ride up in an enclosed gondola.

The Timbers is a good choice if you want ski in ski out and 5-star. The building sits on the slope and is pretty similar to a Ritz-Carlton. It's also next to the Gondola.

If you are looking for the cheapest way to go then check out Monarch Ski Resort. It's not the best place to ski, but it is definitely the cheapest. Also, don't rent your equipment from the actual mountain resort. I would rent it from a town near there, it is usually about 2/3 the price.

i live in denver and for REAL cheap a little known local spot is called loveland pass (some years i cant afford the colorado pass, but there is always this option) it is between loveland and keystone resorts, has a place to park and is actually a fun little back country area with easy access (no hiking necessary at all)

Keystone is a good resort but if you are looking for cheap, check out A-Basin or loveland. Also, renting in Denver is cheaper than on the mountain. Pack your lunch and you are good to go for pretty low cost.
