KeystoneKeystone is centered around River Run Village, which sits at the base of the slopes. The town sits at 9,280 feet above sea level, with the mountain summit at 12,408 feet. It’s located less than an hour and a half from Denver, in Summit County. Keystone is more urban than some other mountain towns in the sense that it has a very upscale, high-end bunch of spas, athletic groups, and restaurants that cater to those looking to be wowed. There are also accommodations for those looking for a more affordable getaway, with plenty of specials and discounts available. Keystone Resort serves all levels of skiers, from beginners to advanced, and a man-made lake is surrounded by attractive ski lodges. The lake, one of the nation’s largest groomed skating ponds, is popular with ice skaters in winter and paddle-boaters in summer. A Nordic Center caters to cross-country skiers and snowshoers, and instruction is available to both. In summer, those ski trails become hiking trails. The chairlift runs in the summer, too, to get hikers up to mountain-top trails. It’s also fun to explore the area on horseback, or play a few rounds of golf on two high-altitude courses. One of the state’s more unusual restaurants is tucked away up in the alpine landscape. The Alpenglow Stube requires two chairlift rides and a short walk, but once you’re there, you’re on top of the world, literally and culinarily speaking. The gourmet cuisine is served in an elegant log lodge, the perfect way to celebrate a fine day of skiing or hiking.
