After opening for the 2023-24 winter season last Wednesday, Keystone Resort has made ample progress toward opening up more terrain, blowing man-made snow whenever the resort can.

Due to hard work from Keystone’s snowmaking crew, snowcat groomers and mountain operations teams, Keystone officially expanded its early-season terrain offerings by opening up top-to-bottom skiing out of the River Run Village base area.

During Keystone’s first few days of operations this winter, guests could ski close to 2-miles of terrain via Schoolmarm and Silver Spoon, but were forced to stop at the mid-mountain, Montezuma Express lift in order to get more runs in.

With the addition of the Endeavor, Dercum’s Dash and River Run, guests can now extend their early-season runs by close to a mile and lap the Summit Express chairlift. Keystone now has five of 143 trails open for the season with two out of 21 lifts open.

In a social media post, Keystone said they will now work toward the Mountain House base area.
