Keystone is the perfect resort community. Keystone occupies three separate mountains: Dercum Mountain, North Peak, and the Outback. There are many winter activities including tubing, ice-skating, cross-country skiing, horse-drawn sleigh ride dinners, snowmobiling, and a Kidtopia ice castle in the winter. In the summer families can enjoy world-class hiking, mountain biking, fishing, trail running, golf on two championship courses, and paddle boating on Keystone Lake. Warren Station, the Center For the Arts, hosts some of the best music Summit County has to offer in the River Run Village. Keystone has a few defined neighborhoods that each offer their own unique characteristics:
The River Run Village is in the center of it all. Located at the base of the Gondola with fine restaurants, coffee shops, and outdoor clothing stores. This area is mostly condominiums within walking distance to the slopes.
Mountain House sits a half mile away from River Run and is the original Keystone base area. This area features mostly larger condominiums with amazing views and walk-to-slopes convenience. Lively during the day with the Ski and Ride School, Mountain House quiets down in the evenings for a relaxing atmosphere.
Keystone’s Lakeside Village is home to the Keystone Conference Center and the 5 acre pond, Keystone Lake. The pond is surrounded by restaurants, shops and condominiums and central to the whole resort. During the winter the lake becomes North America’s largest outdoor ice skating rink, and in the summer it is great for stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boating. Lakeside Village is not quite walk-to-slopes, but with constant shuttles families can still easily get to their favorite run.
Keystone Ranch is home to two world-class golf courses. Located a bit further from the ski resort Keystone Ranch features high-end single family homes with millon dollar views of the golf course in the foreground and mountain peaks in the background. Tucked between the Keystone Valley and Swan Mountain there is plentiful hiking, mountain biking, sledding, and cross-country skiing.
