Nestled in the Colorado Rockies where the Gore, Tenmile and Front ranges meet, Keystone is centred around a world-class ski area. Its dramatic wilderness landscapes are carved by the Blue River and dotted with historic towns and villages.
Things to do in Keystone
Hit the trails of Keystone Resort, which sprawls across the Dercum Mountain, North Peak and Outback ski areas. In addition to alpine skiing, snowboarding and ice-skating, it boasts family-friendly Kidventure Zones and challenging snowcat-accessed terrain at Independence Mountain and Wapiti Peak.
If you’re visiting during summer, Keystone Resort provides a spectacular setting for mountain biking and hiking along its many trails. Go paddle boating on Keystone Lake and cast a fishing line to see what’s biting or enjoy a round at one of the two championship golf courses.
Make a day trip to the charismatic town of Breckenridge, where the main street is lined with historic buildings constructed from clapboard and log. Discover its Gold Rush-era heritage and the ups and downs of life here during the mid-19th century at one of the numerous gold mines.
Be inspired by the snow-capped peaks and dramatic valleys of Eagles Nest Wilderness, situated within White River National Forest. Walking trails access its picture-perfect high-alpine lakes, with wildflowers blanketing the landscapes in spring and mountain goats often spotted along the craggy slopes.
