Keystone Resort Winter Fact Sheet 2010 - 2011

27 October 2010
 New for 2010/2011 Season: “Murphy Silver Mine”

Kids love the adventure and excitement of Ripperroo's Forest tucked into the woods at Keystone Resort. You'll find it near the beginner area off of the Schoolmarm trail. Ripperroo's Forest is improved this winter, with expanded trails and features. One new feature that has been added is a mine shaft trail and tunnel in the woods. It's by the Ranger surface lift at the top. All of the bridges in Ripperoo's Forest and on the trails are now eight feet across instead of four. It gives more room for ski school and families.
