Keystone Colorado SWEETTT
 
Keystone has EVERYTHING. I mean, there is probably better backcountry spots in a lot of other places but the park, WOW. A51 park is so rad. Im from the east coast and out there is like freakin' heaven. My brother and I threw together a little edit from when we took a trip out there a week ago over christmas break. Hope you enjoy! :

Keystone has everything? LOL!

I'm sure it seems that way to an east coaster, but to people who like powder and interesting terrain, Keystone is probably the worst resort in all of CO.

And BA will be here soon to shit all over Keystone's park. I ride very little park, so I have no comment on that.

I did enjoy your video though. Nicely done.

Aww how cute you went to the shithole resort and thought it was the best. Sucks to suck!

I like Keystone, and it's not the shittiest mountain. That title belongs to Breckenfridge. I seldom ever go to Breckenflat cause it's like going out for hamburgers when there's steak at home.

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.

6 chair alone makes Breck > Keystone.

Go compare snow totals, that right there should be enough to make you boycott Keystone. Then again troglodytes seem to love Keystone.

I had to pay my car insurance in Breckenridge today, so I went out for hamburgers. Horrible, the mountain was wind swept. There were rocks and exposed dirt all over the mountain. It was shitty. As one who has rode both Keystone and Breckenridge this week, Keystone has more snow. Those snow totals don't mean shit when the snow blows away.

They also locked up CJs, those bastards.

I did Breck and Keystone yesterday and snow quality is about the same, depending where you go on the mountain obviously. Both have their share of bare spots, I did Vail the day before and its the same. Bottom line is we need this storm to dump.

Oh btw unless we get a good dropping the next few nights stay off the T-Bar. Rocks and rocks and rocks.
