Keystone Starts Up Ski Season Friday

Keystone Starts Up Ski Season Friday

Keystone, CO, Oct. 21--The second ski resort in the nation opens Friday, Oct. 22. Keystone Resort starts up the ski season with four inches of natural snow, which fell earlier this week, on top of more than a foot of the man-made stuff. Keystone first started blowing on Sept. 28, with the goal of an October opening.

"It's fairly normal for us to open with one run anywhere from mid- to late-October," said Bill Miller, Keystone's director of mountain operations. "And it seems like every year the act of opening up for the season reminds Mother Nature that it's time for winter."

An 18-inch base covers the mile-long intermediate run "Haywood" served by the Argentine lift. John Rutter, Keystone Resort COO, will countdown to the 8:30 a.m. opening live on the Frisco-based radio station KYSL-FM. Music, banners, and noisemakers provide additional ambiance for the Argentine lift's first passengers of the season.

Early season lift tickets run $29 for adults aged 12 and up and $17 for children under 12, through November 25. The River Run lots offer free parking and a shuttle service. Close-in pay parking will be available at the Mountain House base area.

Check back on SkiNet for photos and an update from Keystone's opening day.
