Although Keystone Resort does not gave the name recognition of some of the other ski resorts in Colorado, it has a lot of other benefits that you cannot necessarily get at some of the others. Keystone Resort is one of the closest places to Denver International Airport, making it one of the easiest resorts to get to if you want to take a ski vacation.
Keystone boasts a number of different restaurants and Apres spots to explore during your stay. If you are looking for a high end experience, try out the Ski Tip Lodge on the outskirts of the resort. This reservations only, american inspired 4 course menu style restaurant has won a multitude of awards, and was recently voted the best restaurant in Summit County. During the football season or any other time you need to catch a game, check out 9280 Tap House, where they have excellent bar style food and a huge selection of local beers on tap. My personal favorite restaurant in the Keystone area is Dos Locos, a locals’ favorite mexican cantina. Dos Locos is very casual, but is across the highway from the resort, so take a short walk and enjoy some delicious margaritas!
Want to avoid the process of getting a rental vehicle to get you from the airport to your accommodations? Use Summit Express, a shuttle service that offers free wifi and takes the hassle away by bringing you directly to your accommodations if you so choose. Once you make it into town, Summit County provides multiple free transportation services to guests and locals. The Summit Stage brings people between towns, as it is a free service provided from the county as a whole. This allows you to check out the rest of the county, such as Breckenridge, which offers a different experience than the resort community of Keystone. Within the town of Keystone, there is a free resort shuttle that allows you to get to anywhere in Keystone really easily.
