I have staying at the dakota lodge, it was a nice place the only problem I had with it is being on river run. I know that sounds crazy and that is where the night skiing is located at. The problem with river run is they charge more for ever thing cause it is newer then mtn house. I have been staying at mtn house for some time now being it has lift service right to A51 and like how it is off the main path more also being cheaper helps. One place you need to go while in keystone is a steak house down the road you pick you cut of meat and cook it on the grill near your table. It is a amazing place they also have a locals day so everything is not quite a big hit on the wallet. Also hop on the shuttle and head over to break after a couple of days at keystone for some change up. I normally do 3-4 weeks in keystone and hit all the vail mtns from there. Oh and stop in golden, co the way up to keystone for a coors tasting tour for some free beer.

We were jus hanging out there las night, I was telling my wife that on a vacation it would be the best bang for your buck because you can nighth board until 8pm on some nights. Keystone is a nicer mtn than I imagined. I can't board right now but it seemed to be very well maintained. I didn't think the area was too expensive but then again I have to see vail prices every day....

Yeah when you have to pay 6 - 7 dollars for milk at vail that is crazy, but snowmass does make up for that.

West vail City market is 2.89-3.29/ gallon. If you buy shit in the village it's double that.... In the villages the prices for food is fucking stupid. I only eat at two places in the villages cause they hook us up with half price....

thanks for the response guys, i am def super amped to get out there. yea ive heard everything is fairly expensive there, think we gonna roll over to dillon on the first day to do some grocery shopping and hit a liqour store. is dillon as close as ive been told?? does that sound like a good idea??
we got the summit local pass, so we plan on hitting a basin and breck while we are out there.

readi, was dakota lodge itself a nice place? ive read good and bad reviews about it, but that is expected. do they do room cleaning? do they provide all your towels and stuff for the bathroom?

thanks again

If your in a car, fill up in Georgetown about 20 minutes before your keystone exit. Don't buy beer in the grocery store, it has less alcohol content.
