A post on social media that garnered nearly 100 comments, some of which showed long lift lines extending into River Run Village, claimed Keystone Resort would be closing its Summit Express lift midweek from Tuesday to Thursday throughout the rest of the season, but resort officials are saying this post is not true.

“The Summit Express was running today, and it is planned to operate throughout the week,” Spokesperson Max Winter said in an email Wednesday.

Rumors about the reason for the lift’s closure claimed it was a cost-cutting measure or that it had to do with staffing, but Winter said “our lift schedules evolve throughout the season based on a variety of factors that include resort operations, visitation and weather,” adding that the resort is fully staffed currently.

Keystone Resort says the claims made in a social media post, pictured here, are false. Spokesperson Max Winter said the Summit Express lift will run midweek from Tuesday to Thursday despite the inaccurate claims to the contrary being made on social media.
