In addition to offering some of the best downhill runs in Colorado, this top-notch ski area offers countless Summit County events for visitors and locals alike. These are the five Keystone events that you simply can’t miss.
Super Snowy Science
Are you or your kids interested in science? The Super Snowy Science Keystone event occurs every Friday between November and April. Keystone’s science school instructors host these family-friendly, educational Summit County events, and they teach all about the anatomy of a snowflake, the snow cycle, and avalanche safety.
Meet the Avalanche Rescue Dog
On Tuesdays, also between November and April, the four-legged heroes of Keystone pay a visit to Kidtopia Headquarters. It’s one of the most popular recurring Keystone Events—who doesn’t love dogs? Plus, you’ll learn all about how to stay safe during your Summit County vacation.
My First Cross Country Ski
Keystone isn’t a downhill-only destination. While you stay with us in our luxurious Summit County vacation rentals, you’ll have access to all kinds of winter activities, including cross country skiing in Colorado. If you’re new to nordic, don’t worry. The My First Cross Country Ski Keystone events are geared toward those who have never been in cross country skis or snowshoes before. After the lesson, you’ll be nordic skiing in Colorado like a champ!
Colorado’s Critters—Wildlife Education Station
Getting outside and exploring the mountain scenery is central to any Colorado vacation, and you’re sure to see some new and unique animals during your adventures. With Friends of the Dillon Ranger District’s Keystone events, you can learn all about the different critters living in our mountains. After attending one of these Summit County events, see if you can recognize any of the animals out on the mountain or around your Summit County vacation rental.

Colorado fireworks are a hit with everyone, including families, friends, and couples. That’s why Saturday evening fireworks are one of the most popular Keystone, Colorado, events.
