Keystone Closing Day 2017: Area Events



Yes. It’s true. Closing Day is right around the corner. April 16th to be exact. But, there’s still 10 days left to have fun on the slopes! And, don’t forget, A-basin is just down the road and they have yet to announce their closing day (last year it was in June). For the remainder of the Keystone ski season we have nightly rates starting at just $50 so you can celebrate Closing Day and Easter in the mountains without breaking the bank.
