No one in the industry works harder than Keystone to woo families with young children to the sport, and for that we are loyal fans of this resort. We know: Skiing with kids is a schlep-fest. But Keystone makes it a little sweeter thanks to cookie decorating, snowball launching, scavenger hunts, snow forts, ice skating, and even that doofy Ripperoo character who lopes around the village, loved by kids and their parents alike. On the mountain, it’s much the same story. Family trails and kids adventures zones like H&M Mining Co. and Ripperoo’s Forest bring the slopes to life when you’re barely waist high and bundled up like a mummy. And anything that makes skiing more fun for the littles is a huge check-mark for the bigs.
