Keystone Real Estate Information
Keystone is a deceptively sparsely populated community found in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Despite its relatively small population of only eight hundred and twenty five residents, Keystone is an extremely popular and well known ski resort both for residents of Colorado and tourists from farther away. Keystone is technically considered a census designated place of Summit County, and increases substantially in population during the winter months when skiers arrive. The Keystone Resort, which is the primary attraction of the community of Keystone, was built in the nineteen seventies, and is currently owned by Vail Resorts. Keystone is a rather large resort, and covers a cumulative total of three mountains, mostly due to the wide variety of offerings in terms of slopes.
Interestingly, the Keystone resort is also home to a considerable array of summer attractions, despite the fact that it is obviously skewed towards the winter season. Some popular summer activities in Keystone include biking and jogging on the well-developed trail system throughout the Colorado Rockies. Other options include hiking and fishing in the crystalline mountain lakes of the Rockies as well as simple sightseeing and photography. The Keystone Resort ski area boasts an extremely impressive set of specifications, including nearly three thousand acres, one hundred and seventeen trails, nineteen ski lifts, and even night skiing. Keystone is arguably the most convenient of the Colorado ski resorts, since it is relatively central to the other resorts and is the closest to Denver International Airport.
Keystone is home to a beautiful resort village in addition to ski slopes. Keystone Village and River Run are both considered a part of the Keystone complex, and both offer boutiques, restaurants, and great souvenir shops. The Keystone Resort also boasts ice skating, sleigh rides, gondola rides, snow mobile rides, and of course shopping. Three of the Keystone trails offer snowboarding, while fans of Nordic skiing can enjoy more than seventy three thousand feet of trails throughout the White River National Forest. Golf enthusiasts can enjoy the River Course golf course when taking a break from the slopes, while indoor tennis and fitness centers are also available.
