Yup... took my little lady to Keystone for the first time, and she was stoked. She's ridden plenty of DH (SolVista, Angel Fire, WP, Vail, Crested Butte, Steamboat) but had never been to Keystone. I was a little concerned that she wouldn't like it because the trails are a bit steeper, a bit rockier than anything except Angel Fire, and just a bit "bigger" feeling than most other places. Turns out, she really loved riding downhill at Keystone, and was cleaning some of the techy bits by the end of day 1. She would roll up on a thing, take a look, ask me if it went, then just hike back up and hit it.
Three-Step in Wild Thing, like a BOSS:
Entrance to Skelter, "Does it go?" she asked:
Trail report: everything seems to be riding really well. Paid in Full is closed for renovation, but everything else was open and ripping. Couple of muddy spots here and there but otherwise in KILLER shape. I think someone on this board has whined or complained about Keystone not doing any maintenance or something like that but I could see lots of little places where the bike park crew has spent some time making improvements, fixing lips, adding berms, and generally making the place Moar Awesome™. I even ticked off a couple of features that have given me trouble in the past, and generally got my bike riding really well with correct spring rates and compression adjustments.
Stoked for downhill season!
