Kids Ski Free

Keystone has long been the place where kids rule, and this year the proof is in the pudding as the resort’s industry-leading Kids Ski Free program is poised to reach 100,000 free kids tickets provided during the fourth season of the program, with a special celebration planned for this winter to honor the milestone. Every day, all season long, kids 12 and younger ski for free at Keystone with no blackout dates. All guests need to do to qualify is stay two or more nights in one of Keystone’s numerous accommodation options, which span from luxury hotel rooms to cozy ski-in, ski-out condominiums. When it comes to family, no one does it better than Keystone!


Keystone continues to redefine the family resort experience with year-round Kidtopia activities and animation. Kids of all ages—including those young at heart—can enjoy a variety of daily programming throughout the winter season beginning Thanksgiving weekend. Providing new ways for friends and families to experience the resort, Kidtopia truly goes above and beyond to elevate any family vacation. Test your aim and compete with family members at the Giant Snowball Launch, hunt for the elusive sasquatch during the Bigfoot Adventure Walk, create a masterpiece and keepsake at Cupcakes and Canvases and experience the world’s largest snow fort beginning Dec. 12 – just to name a few of the daily, family-friendly Kidtopia offerings. Whether you’re looking for a high-energy adventure or some down time off the mountain, Kidtopia is a one-stop shop for family fun. With the majority of Kidtopia events free of charge for all participants, creative daily programming is just another way Keystone continues to add value to the family mountain experience.


Camp Keystone

Keystone Resort provides one of the most unique children’s ski school offerings in the country at its Mountain House base area: Camp Keystone. The Camp Keystone experience begins as soon as children walk in the door with fun, interactive displays and a 24-foot slide that propels kids from inside the building to the adventure that awaits on the snow. Skills are developed by game-aided learning, which encourages additional time outdoors and on snow, creating the next generation of snow enthusiasts. With three designated teaching areas, children and beginners of all ages benefit from specially designed terrain with progression and skill development in mind.

Private Family Lessons

Whether your family is new to skiing and snowboarding or you’re seasoned snow veterans, those looking to develop new skills, improve technique or explore the mountain like never before can enjoy a family private lesson together. Taking advantage of shared on-snow time, bonding is just an added bonus to these specially designed lessons. Private lessons can be reserved for up to six family members (or friends) of similar ability, and with instructors who specialize in working with the whole family you can rest assured that everyone’s ski and snowboard needs will be met on the snow. A family private lesson at Keystone is the perfect way to create memories together and take your shared passion to the next level, so this new product is a can’t-miss for snow-loving families.
