Free Ski/Free Ride at Keystone
Keystone Resort has two parks, Jackwhacker and Dutch, that include more than 15 rails of all shapes and sizes, 12 tables and 1 halfpipe. Keystone's terrain parks are ideal for intermediate skiers and riders, and for those just learning park skills. The parks are long, so there are plenty of chances for big hits and spins on the way down the mountain, or hike back up to the feature you want to practice. Freeskiers are allowed in the halfpipe and in the terrain park.
Some of Keystone's most difficult freeski and freeride terrain is located in The Outback bowls. Open the gates to the hiking terrain in North and South Bowl and you open a wealth of possibilities for freeskiing and riding. Hit Puma Bowl or Outlook Bowl early for a great stash of freshies.
Keystone Resort is known to have some of the best tree-skiing in the state. So it's no surprise Keystone's gladed areas are a freeskier's and freerider's paradise. The Windows on the backside of Keystone Mountain are accessible only by hiking and The Black Forest and Outer Limits in The Outback are about as remote as you can get. Wombat Chutes funnel down from Puma Bowl and offer plenty of tough tree terrain.
