Keystone, CO (September 22, 2015) — Keystone Resort, nestled amongst the Rocky Mountains just a short drive from Denver in Summit County, Colo., is the premier family-friendly big mountain skiing and riding destination. Now is the best time for guests to book their complete vacations, from lodging to lift tickets to ski school, to ensure the best availability and rates as Keystone opens for the 2015-16 season on Friday, Nov. 6 – less than 50 days away.
Returning for a fourth season, Keystone’s Kids Ski Free program is easy on the wallet, easy on the rules and hard to beat. Available every day for the duration of the season, including weekends and holidays, families need only to book two or more nights of lodging through Keystone Resort for any child 12 and younger to ski for free. Currently, exclusive winter savings of up to 30 percent off stays of three or more nights are available if booked by Opening Day, with deposits beginning at just $50 to reserve a complete vacation.
Keystone offers a variety of comfortable lodging options with a range of amenities and price points. Hotel rooms, studio to four-bedroom townhomes and condos, village or secluded settings, full-sized kitchens, pool and hot tub access are some of the highlights found throughout the resort. Additionally, any overnight stay of one night or more also includes Keystone Resort’s exclusive Play For Free offerings, including free night skiing on night of arrival (when applicable), free ice skating admission, free indoor tennis court access and a free yoga or fitness class.
Guests can rest assured that their lodging will provide perfect access to Keystone’s 3,148 skiable acres of terrain, daily activities and mouth-watering dining options. The resort offers a true winter wonderland where families can customize their own experiences based upon their desires. It may be enrolling kids in Camp Keystone where an interactive ski school experience begins the moment children arrive, ice skating on a 5-acre outdoor lake, skiing or riding well past sunset, embarking on a historic sleigh ride dinner, watching their kids sing and dance with mascot Ripperoo during his weekly parade, or taking in majestic views from atop the world’s largest snow fort, perched 11,640 feet above sea-level. Keystone Resort continues to be known as the place where families rule.
For the traveler looking to maximize their time on the mountain this winter, season pass options are no longer strictly for locals.
