they have 600 average blue runs and a great park.

try not to die there.
Keystone has snowboarders on their ski patrol. Those people that stand around the signs and gates are yellow jackets. Ski Patrol sometimes does this. I don't think either parties are anti boarder, but I do think they profile. They do tend to go after the more punker, snow rat type or bro bras skier and riders. These people look faster to the yellow jackets. When I had terrible looking patched stained outerware I swear the yellow jackets would whistle at me more and I would get stopped more.

A couple of days ago I saw a mom and 2 kids standing right under this very steep drop off to the left of Spring dipper. I should of said something to the mom. They were being those idiots. In the skiers code you are not suppose to stop where you are not visable, but I would still feel terrible if I hurt 2 little children and a mother. I was going to jump off the drop off but saw them.
