Keystone falls in eyes of longtime skier now at A-Basin

RE: the story about Roger McCarthy turning around Keystone.

As far as we are concerned, he already has turned it around – for the worse. Thank God we decided to go to Arapahoe Basin Dec. 2. As we drove by Keystone, a sign stating “Mountain House Closed” greeted us. Sure enough, the Peru Creek Express lift was closed.

We have been skiing Keystone and Summit County for 18 years. On a scale of one to 10, Keystone used to be an 8.5.

I now rank it as a 2.5 because terrain is closed, even though the snow is the best it has been this early in years.

Also, grooming is nonexistent, even though we were told Keystone bought three new grooming machines. What a shame that a neat mountain is going down the drain.
