River Run Village is the heart of Keystone. Aside from the slopes, this is where all the action takes place. Kidtopia events, parades, ice sculpture contests, and much more all happen right in the middle of River Run Village. Plus, there’s a wide variety of restaurants, shops and, of course, lodging. If you’re looking to come to Keystone and be within walking distance of everything you need, River Run Village is the place to be.
One of the premier highlights of River Run Village is that you’re always walking distance to the high-speed gondola. The village is home to two ski-in/ski-out complexes, Lone Eagle and The Timbers, while all other complexes are anywhere from a two- to a five-minute walk away.
River Run Village is also home to Dercum Square that features an ice skating rink during the winter and a miniature golf course during the summer. The playground is open year-round. Warren Station is an enclosed facility that hosts various events throughout the year including concerts, kids’ activities, festivals, weddings and more. Right next door is the Quaking Aspen Amphitheatre, and open-air facility that features a beautiful backdrop of Aspen trees, wildflowers or alpine landscape depending on the time of year. An ideal wedding reception location.
For those that need a bite to eat after hitting the slopes, there are many restaurants to choose from, including Pizza on the Run, New Moon Cafe, Kickapoo Tavern and more. Whether you’re coming from the slopes or your lodging, restaurants are just a short walk away. And for those seeking a quiet vacation, a couple of these restaurants are even open during the off season. There are also various shops selling clothing, jewelry, and regional souvenirs and gifts. There’s a childcare center located on the first floor of Silver Mill for anyone looking to keep the kids occupied while you hit the spa or the slopes.
Paths for biking and walking run all throughout the resort, but if you head west you’ll hit the Mountain House Base Area and then Lakeside Village. Or enjoy the convenience of the resort shuttle with four shuttle stops along the north side of the village.
