In order to provide mountain guests with the best possible experience, Keystone Mountain Resort has opted to delay their opening day until further notice. The resort had its best night of snowmaking so far this last night, where they were able to fire up the guns overnight and into the morning, allowing them to run for 18 hours straight. Unseasonably warm temperatures have been prevalent so far this season, which has not allowed for a lot snowmaking.

“The good news for today is that last night was our best night of snowmaking so far this season! The snow guns were fired up for more than 18 hours overnight and into this morning. This is a welcome change for us all as we’re eager to get the season underway,” stated Keystone Resort in a recent press release.

Despite the challenges that Mother Nature has provided Keystone with, they are doing all they can to make snow whenever possible. Along with that, their groomers and ski patrollers have been working to prepare the mountain for opening day in the near future. While it may not be the ideal situation, Keystone is making the best of it by preparing for the next snowmaking opportunity. We applaud them for that and appreciate all the hard work that is done by all the mountain employees to kick start the season.  Colorado needs a decent snowfall and a stint of sub-zero temperatures to get the season going!

“We’re equally as excited for Opening Day as our guests, we’re excited to continue with preparations, and we’ll share our opening day as soon as possible,” stated Keystone Resort in a recent press release.
