Keystone Resort Extends Season Thanks to Record Snow

With nearly 16 feet of snow so far this season – the snowiest winter at Keystone Resort in at least 10 years – the resort announced today that it will extend the season by one week to Easter Sunday, April 16. Following the third snowiest December in Keystone’s history with 81 inches or nearly seven feet, the resort has already received another 81 inches of snow this month alone with a week still remaining before February arrives. This marks the first time in resort history that Keystone has received 80 inches or more of snow in back-to-back months.

“The record breaking snow seemingly has not stopped falling the past two months,” said Mike Goar, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Keystone Resort. “We’ve received more than 13 feet of snow in December and January, the second highest combined total ever for those two months.”

The extension provides guests additional time to enjoy a spring trip to Keystone, where bluebird days, warmer temperatures, and spectacular skiing and riding conditions await. KeystoneResort.com
