cat boarding at keystone

Im heading out to keystone jan.2 and i was wondering if the 5$ cat ride was worth checking out. Will it be open? Is it busy?

There's no way to be sure that the snow will be good. I've only ridden that kat once and I enjoyed it.... I don't think it's worth $5, but what can ya do.

And it's usually not super busy because it's a pay to ride kat.

Its worth it though if your from out of town and not used to altitude

The cat ride is only $5? Sounds Pretty cheap to me.

Take yourself to higher places.

I agree, $5 is a steal. Throw an extra $20 in your budget and go for several rides.

Powder Mountain, UT charges $15 for a cat ride and you have to stand behind it and get pulled up. But even at that price I have never regretted paying for it.

Price a full day of cat skiing and see what a good deal those are.

I doubt it will be open by then. I would say there is a good chance they aren't running the cat by January 2nd. Unless these storms really start dumping. It's looking like a mid to late January start of snow cat operations around here.

Im staying in Keystone next week also. Keystone still doesnt have much open though. I think I may head over to Breck most of the time for my actual riding.

I can pretty much guarantee that no resort in the front range area is going to have 100% of the mountain open by the second. That is rare even during huge seasons.
