    I wish *everyone* knew that Keystone was so rad and would go there.

    It's almost like it's the best-kept secret on the Front Range.

    Kinda like the DH mt biking in Limon.

    It is the best kept secret. If you know, you know.

    Left Boulder bright in early. i70 traffic was hell, as expected. Witnessed the aftermath of two separate car accidents. Made it to Keystone in about 3 hours. Got suited and booted, bought tickets, and made it on the lift by 10ish.

    Although there seemed to be a lot of people there, it never felt crowded. No waiting on lifts. Big wide groomers, flanked by dense trees. It was a beautiful bluebird day too, mid 30's, bright sun. Had to shed layers form the onset. Great snow too even though there hadn't been a storm in several days.

    For me, the glades were the highlight. What I liked was that you could start at the top of the mountain and ski in the trees almost the entire way to the base. Like 15-20 min laps all trees. Amazing. It's not often that I come across such extensive trees. There were steep parts, but mostly more mellow pitches, which I prefer.

    After lunch, it seemed like the entire place had cleared out. Several times I found myself alone on a broad groomer. Virtually no waiting in line for lifts either. Plenty of varied terrain from what I experienced.

    I only spent 8 hours there, 7 skiing and 1 at lunch so I'm sure there is a lot I missed. Regardless, I'll definitely be going back for a longer stay.
    You should really check out the interconnect gondola that goes all the way to breckenridge

    Is this a cross post from the "What happened to Epic Skiers" thread? Well, welcome ChaseB...sorry it took you so long to find us.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    No thanks. I'll stick with porn. - Benny

    Agreed. It's a bit hard to find, but TOTALLY worth it.

    Yeah, and if you get off the mid-load, there are some sick pillows near Blair Witch Trail.
