Keystone is the unincorporated home of Vail-owned Keystone Resort, as well as a variety of privately owned business, rental properties, and residences.
The resort ski area occupies 3 separate mountains: Dercum Mountain, North Peak, and The Outback. Recent expansion of terrain and services offers snowcat skiing in Independence Bowl, Bergman Bowl, Erickson Bowl, in addition to the existing North Bowl and South Bowl on Wapiti Peak. Winter activities include alpine skiing, snowboarding, tubing, ice-skating, cross-country skiing, horse-drawn sleigh ride dinners, and snowmobiling. A seven-month ski season promises adventure on the slopes, whether on skis, a tube, sleigh or in a snow cat.
The summer activities include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, trail running, golf on two championship courses, and paddle boating on Keystone Lake. Off mountain, Keystone Village provides entertainment and shopping galore.
