Keystone Ski Resort expands family friendly options
October 28, 2013
Keystone Resort is gearing up for another winter season, with new offerings for skiers and snowboarders of all ages.
Staff said they are pulling out all the stops when it comes to providing a family friendly ski experience.
"Keystone is incredibly proud of not only being a family friendly destination, but a family focused resort," said Keystone Resort spokeswoman Tucker Vest Burton. "From red wagons to haul gear to the lifts, to warm chocolate chunk cookies at condo check-in, to the new Family Front-Row Parking program, the resort truly takes into account a family's needs and caters towards each guest."
Keystone staff said the resort is a place that allows kids and parents alike to enjoy their well-earned vacation time together.
“Keystone is incredibly proud of not only being a family friendly destination, but a family focused resort,” said Keystone Resort spokeswoman Tucker Vest Burton. “From red wagons to haul gear to the lifts, to warm chocolate chunk cookies at condo check-in, to the new Family Front-Row Parking program, the resort truly takes into account a family’s needs and caters towards each guest.”
This season the resort is taking the next step in creating unique family ski experiences with the introduction of the first-ever family ski trail.
The schoolyard will debut on Keystone's signature green cruiser, Schoolmarm. The trail will be designed to engage skiers and riders of all ages, while promoting on-snow progression with specialty features such as Rockin' Rollers and Tornado Alley, as well as additional programming including meeting the avy dog and glow stick parades.
This winter, the resort is also introducing free family front-row parking in its main parking lot, steps from Keystone's gondola. Other family oriented amenities will include wagons and gear chauffeurs available throughout the resort to help guests easily transport skis and snowboards to and from the lifts.
Keystone staff said no other ski resort in the country offers a Kids Ski Free program that is as simple and valuable as theirs.
Children 12 and under qualify when staying two or more nights in one of Keystone's many owned and operated lodging units.
"It does not matter if a family has one kid or 10 kids, they all ski free if they're 12 and under with two or more nights lodging stay," Vest Burton said.
There are no blackout dates, no restrictions and no red tape, she said. Children ski free all season long even if it's the holidays or spring break.
"Families really are receiving an incredible deal at a world-class ski resort, leaving more time for enjoying experiences together rather than worrying about the cost," Vest Burton said.
Keystone Resort includes more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain accessed via 20 chairlifts as well as the largest night ski operation in Colorado. Opening day is Nov. 1. More information can be found at http://www.keystoneresort.com.
