Default Keystone of Winter Park?

I am looking into passes and I have narrowed it down to these 2. But I haven't been to WP for 15+ years. I remember liking it. Although my wife is starting to get into the park scene and really likes the little park at Keystone. Does WP have anything good small jumps she can hit? Or should we stick to Keystone?

If I had to choose between snowboarding in Florida or at Keystone, I'd still have to pause and think about it.

That's like saying well I don't mind pissing out my ass or squirting out my ass after I eat this bad food. If I was forced to ride only one mountain I would go with Keystone only because WP is just so damn crappy with their park and the WP side is flat as fuck.

Huge fan of Keystone. I love Spring Dipper down to River Run, probably my favorite blue period, and the park at Key is great for any level of rider.

I'm going to WP at least once this season as lodging isn't too expensive and Steamboat isn't too far from there. The 4 resort pass or whatever is a pretty good deal... Money wise looks like WP beats out Keystone. Just have to stay off the flats and half the mountain is moguls.

I think the time for really cheap passes is over though.

Epic pass> Everything else.

I would say keystone is the equivalent of natty light, but that would be unfair to natty light.

Not sure if serious or trolling.

Somewhat serious, but also a little bit of trolling. During the day I spend most of my Keystone time on North Peak and Outback, but I enjoy it during night boarding. Honestly, I was expecting a few "what," or "are you fucking kidding me," from the CO crowd. I just find it to be a chill run. I can speed when I want to speed (not like a black, but quick enough for me), fuck around when I am goofing off, and don't have to worry to much when I am on tired legs.
