Keystone Resort to host closing weekend Springtastic celebration April 16-17

Before Keystone Resort officially closes for the 2021-22 ski season, it will throw its Springtastic party, a closing weekend celebration, from April 16-17.

On April 16, the resort will host the Springtastic Rail Jam, which will allow participants to show off their tricks from a hike-to terrain park at the Mountain House base area. Event registration is $15 and participants must wear a helmet and be at least 14 years old.

Keystone will also offer a Springtastic Music Series throughout the final weekend. The music lineup includes DJ Littlefoot and So What Brothers on April 16 and DJDC and Rock of 80s on April 17. All of the live music will be played at the Mountain House base area and is free to the public.

Rounding out the weekend on April 17 is the Keystone Slush Cup, a pond skimming competition, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Participants are encouraged to wear wacky costumes as they attempt to skim across a pool of cold water on a board or skis. Registration is $30.

To participate in any of the events, registration must be completed online at prior to the event. Early registration is recommended since the events are expected to be popular.

All of the proceeds from entry fees will be donated to the Epic Promise Foundation, which helps Vail Resorts employees that are in need of financial assistance.
