Let us create your Experience of a Lifetime.
The Keystone Nordic Center offers something for everyone - daily ski lessons, guided snowshoe tours, family tubing, equipment rental, and the Nordic Soup Bistro.
Take our guided Mountain Top Snowshoe Trek. This unforgettable experience begins at the top of Dercum Mountain and offers spectacular views as you trek out to Bergman Bowl & North Peak. Offered Thursdays & Saturdays at 10:30am (beginning 12/13/12) or any day with a minimum of three people. Reservation required.
We offer 9 miles (16km) of easy to advanced groomed ski trails and a perimeter snowshoe trail on the rolling terrain of The River Course at Keystone.
Nearby, you can easily access more than 35 miles (57km) of well-marked backcountry trails (requiring a 3-5 mile drive from our Nordic Center). These trails, just below the Continental Divide, are old mining roads leading to deserted mining shafts and offer great nature hiking & views. Peru Creek, Webster Pass, Deer Creek and Sts. John trails are the most popular. These trails are 3-10 miles round trip and vary in difficulty. For more information and driving directions, please visit our Nordic Center.
Unfortunately we are not able to offer dog freindly trails on the golf course. However, you can ski and snowshoe with your dog on the Keystone Gulch Road and on the mining roads in the Montezuma area described above.
