Keystone offers the longest ski day in all of Colorado! During weekends and peak holidays, they offer a “ski late ‘til 8” on multiple lighted trails. Depending on the night, take the River Run Gondola or the Peru express to ride down about 15 lighted runs. Be sure not to miss the sunset from the summit for an unforgettable experience. If you need a moment to warm up, stop inside of the Summit House for hot cocoa.

See the map for details on lighted runs and days and hours of operation:
