Part of the White River National Forest, Keystone, Colorado and the surrounding areas of Breckenridge, Aspen, Vail, Frisco, and Beaver Creek offer the ultimate ski and mountain vacation getaway. Keystone Resort is truly a ski and outdoor lover's paradise with three beautiful mountains to choose from: Decum Mountain, North Peak, and The Outback. Leave the car in the garage and immerse yourself in beautiful Keystone scenery while walking or catching a nearby shuttle to the slopes. Step back inside at night and curl up next to the fireplace, the perfect place for s'mores and hot chocolate. Your vacation rental will offer plenty of space to store your skis, boots, jackets, and poles inside as well as the ability to stretch out on your own porch or deck outside and watch the skiers descend the slopes and the mountain illuminate at night.
