This was one of my favorite resorts when I first moved to Colorado from the East Coast. A good place to get used to the longer runs and altitude, though you'll find a lot of beginners here the slopes hardly ever seemed crowded.

Overall I like Keystone. There are more runs here for less experienced skiers than Breck which is good if you have a family of varying skiing levels. I skied there when I was an intermediate skier moving toward expert and it was the perfect place to hone my skills. Now I prefer other slopes but wouldn't mind going back to Keystone any day of the week.

My family enjoyed skiing at Keystone for years and no wonder. There are a ton of slopes with plenty of great lodging right near the lifts. You'll find slightly more family-friendly runs at Keystone than some other large Colorado resorts but there are plenty of black diamond runs on the back mountain as well. Keystone is often one of the first large Colorado resorts to open each year but beware: expect large crowds and long lift lines on opening weekend!
