Keystone Colorado homes and condos offer convenient year-round vacations and getaways to the Rocky Mountains.  Keystone properties are also great investments. Options for Keystone CO real estate range from ski-in/ski-out condos to single-family homes in favorite neighborhoods such as Keystone Ranch homes, Whispering Pines, and River Run at Keystone in the center of the resort.

All Keystone homes for sale are surrounded by the White River National Forest and the recreational playground of Summit County.  The Snake River winds through the community. Colorado mountain homes and Keystone condos are within a short walk or free shuttle ride to the River Run and Mountain House base areas.  

Keystone Resort is the largest Summit county ski resort.  It is also the largest ski resort in Colorado offering night skiing.  Keystone ski terrain encompasses 3,148 acres from a base elevation of 9,280 feet to the summit at 12,408.  There are 135 runs on Dercum Mountain, the Outback, and North Peak; 15 are lighted.  

Accommodating all ski levels, Keystone also features five bowls and five terrain parks, including the creatively designed A51.Keystone Resort also features Keystone Lake, the largest Zamboni-maintained outdoor skating lake in North America as well as other snow sports such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Summer recreation also abounds.  Activities include mountain biking, biking parks, single-track mountain biking,   Besides Keystone Ranch Golf Course and The River Course at Keystone, Keystone features a miniature golf course.  Adventure Point is at the top of Dercum Mountain.  Lifts carry guests up for downhill biking and summer snow tubing.  

For water sports, Like Dillon offers fishing, boating, sailing, and kayaking.  The Snake River is a great place for fly-fishing.  The Stables in West Keystone offer the option for horseback riding.  Relaxing scenic wagon rides and trail rides head out to the historic ranch behind the resort, an activity reminiscent of the Old West.

Keystone also features renowned restaurants, shops, and spas, and excellent accommodations for reunions and group gatherings, true to the dream of founders Max and Edna Dercum when they opened in 1970.  Vail Resorts currently operates the resort and offers ski passes for its other resorts in Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and A-Basin.

There's always something wonderful going on in the resort--events, cook-offs, live concerts, festivals, and competition--and seeing old friends who also choose Keystone as their home away from home.
