While winter is in full swing at Keystone Resort, with historic snow totals in December and January and more than 14 feet of snow season-to-date, now is the perfect time to start planning a spring visit to the resort!

The Kidtopia Experience highlights the resort’s signature family programming, and culminates with the first-ever Snow Pants Dance Party on Saturday, March 11, featuring free live outdoor music performances by Koo Koo Kanga Roo and Pop ROCKS. Lodging begins at just $189 a night, with all kids 12 and younger skiing free with any two or more night stay booked through the resort.

Pop ROCKS is a high-energy group sure to entertain all ages with their live performance, featuring a variety of hit music genres and top dance party favorites, costume changes, special effects and interactive shows. Pop ROCKS combines the music of a DJ with the theatrics of a Broadway musical and the energy of an arena rock show.
Koo Koo Kanga Roo is a kid-friendly band with catchy pop melodies and infectious dance beats, featuring sing-alongs and choreographed group dancing during their live shows. The duo, who partners with the brain break teacher’s website GoNoodle to produce short and fun videos encouraging kids to dance, has toured stateside and internationally with Frank Turner, The Aquabats, MC Lars and Yo Gabba Gabba Live. 
The Kidtopia Experience provides the perfect complement to Keystone’s on-snow offerings, including more than 3,000 skiable acres of terrain, a 3.5-mile long Family Ski Trail, the longest ski day in Colorado with night skiing, a Ski & Ride School that offers Family Private Lessons, and endless adventure opportunities like mountaintop tubing, the World’s Largest Snow Fort, and dining options for every culinary taste. March is traditionally one of Keystone’s snowiest months, providing the perfect setting for a spring ski trip.
Kidtopia: Keystone’s Unmatched Family Programming
Keystone’s Kidtopia continues to redefine the family resort experience with free activities and events on and off the snow every day of the week throughout the season. Families can enjoy additional opportunities to make memories together during daily programming such as the village parade and fireworks, snowman building, Bigfoot adventure walks, ice cream parties with Keystone’s mascot Ripperoo, snowball launches and much more.
Camp Keystone Children’s Ski & Ride School
Located at the Mountain House base area, Keystone Resort offers a unique children’s ski school experience: Camp Keystone. The Camp Keystone experience begins as soon as children walk in the door, with fun, interactive displays and a 24-foot slide that will propel kids from inside the building to the adventure that awaits on the snow. Skills are developed by game-aided learning, which encourages additional time outdoors and on snow, creating the next generation of snow enthusiasts. With three designated teaching areas, children and beginners of all ages benefit from specially designed terrain with progression and skill development in mind.
