    No lift?

    Has anyone heard a rumor that the quad at Keystone will be closed this coming summer?
    Something about relocating the wheelhouse across the river closer to the village? Meaning riders will have to use the shorter lift father to the west.
    Please tell me it aint so!

    They are offically replacing the gondola and the bottom terminal will be across the river from where it currently is. I know they have cancelled all the functions on the mountain weddings wise. I would suspect there will be some curtailling of lift use and trail use during construction. They are replacing the bridge over the river and they can't have us yahoos in a construction zone. I have heard no official anoucement and would not expect one till the ski season is over.

    I have a hard time believeing they will sacrafice all the ticket sales they are getting by closing the mountain to mtbs during the summer. It doesn't make sense because they have put all that work into building new trails... I bet they will get it done before the mountain opens for DH this summer

    Is there a wedding discount for Colorado Pass holders? :fingerscrossed:
    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.

    That'd be a quick move/build. There might also be an alternative route we're going to have to take, like from the other side of the lift.

    That's what I read. We probably couldn't afford a wedding there anyway.

    The wife and I looked @ Keystone for our reception back in 2002, and I think the cost with their
    catering service was around 15K
