Keystone is not nearly as windy as Breckenridge. The runs are better and the snow sticks around longer at Keystone because it's not windy. The gondola goes to skiable terrain unlike Breckenridge. Keystone has better hiking stuffs, but that is not open yet. Breckenridge ruined a lot of their awesome hiking stuffs by building the Imperial Stupid Chair. Now it's too easy to get there. Keystone has better trees than Breckenflat. The only thing Breckenridge has over Skeystoned is better shacks and a town.

Keystone was a better mountain years ago when they had the green gondola and better events geared to their actual customer base. They are marketing the mountain towards families now. They use to have crazy events like the 36 hours of Keystone where they would be open for 36 hours. They use to have good concerts for free.

Keystone is not the shittiest mountain in Colorado. There's like Breckenridge and Eldora.
I agree. I like vail, Beav, keystone and then breck last. If I lived on that side of the pass I'd take keystone over breck most days.... Breck def has it's appeal but I just don't like the mountain and general conditions as much overall.
