Spring Ski Update @ Keystone

This from Keystone Home owners, update on Spring Skiing Mtn Ops

Subject: Keystone Spring Operations

With less than two weeks left in the ski season, we want to make you aware of the current resort operations schedule and upcoming events as the season winds down. In the next two weeks we will provide you with great spring conditions, plenty of exciting events around the mountain and that awesome spring skiing atmosphere that Colorado is known for.

Mountain

Night skiing will run until 7:00pm- Wednesday to Sunday through April 8. Daylight savings time will allow guests to experience sunset/twilight skiing until 7pm, avoiding the difficult conditions that occur following sunset and the colder temperatures that it brings.

All Children's Ski and Ride School operations will be moving to the Mountain House base area.

The Magic Carpet at mid-station is closed for the season. Double Barrel will have only one side operating and The Sun Kids Carpet will operate 8:30am-12:00pm, through April 8.

NASTAR operations are closed for the season.

The Peru and A51 lifts will close daily at 4pm. With spring weather causing freeze-thaw cycles daily, operations from 8:30am to 4:00pm will provide skiers and riders with the most enjoyable snow conditions possible. Freda's Incubator will remain open until 7pm- Wednesday to Sunday through the end of the season.

Summit Express lift operations are finished for the season. The River Run Gondola will provide guests with a fast, comfortable ride to either the mountain's mid-station or the summit of Dercum Mountain. Guests can access all Dercum Mountain terrain using the Montezuma lift.

Dining

Keystone's signature nighttime dining options at the Alpenglow Stube and Der Fondue Chessel will continue to operate Wednesday to Saturday through the end of the season. Stube lunch service will only be available Saturdays and Sundays through April 8.

The Outpost Gondola will only operate for night dining and weekend lunch and brunch service, April 2-8.

Timber Ridge food court operations will close for the season on Sunday, April 1. Restroom facilities and full bar serving warm drinks and snacks will remain open daily at the top of North Peak in the Timber Ridge building through April 8.

Downstairs operations at the Mountain House will close Monday, March 26. The Food Court and Last Lift Bar will remain open daily through April 8.

Base Area

Adventure Point tubing will begin at Noon daily until 6pm- Wednesday to Saturday.

The Dercum Square Ice Rink is closed for the season.

The Mountain House East (Porcupine) Lot will be an open, FREE lot!

The East bus routes will operate on-call April 1-April 8, while the Central bus route will be on-call Monday-Friday, with regular schedules Saturday and Sunday, April 7-8.

Take advantage of these warm spring days by enjoying the beach scene at Labontes cabin, relaxing on the deck at the Last Lift Bar and skiing the 1000+ acres we continue to have available.

Wishing you a safe and fun finale to the winter season!

Buy one lift ticket and get the second one free. Ticket is valued at $103. Valid now through closing day, April 8, 2012 at Keystone and A-Basin only. Must purchase at a Keystone lift ticket window. You get two tickets to use to ski 2 out of 3 days or give one to a friend to ski together for the day.

I skied Sat and Sun. No one out, great weather, nice soft snow. On snow at around 11:00 - 2:00. We went to the Outback. It is really bare stay on the front or Northpeak.

Frankly I found Mozart to be the most fun I have had this year. You do need to be skilled, as noted in the Skiers Responsibility Code...

"Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects."

There are some bare spots you do need to be able to navigate around them.

It was a blast, hoping that they get the snow forecasted. If they do closing weekend should be very fun.
