It’s that time of year again! The snow is slowly but surely starting to pile up, and it’s time for you to break out the ski boots, ski suits, and ski jackets. Or maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Either way, it’s time for you to ski!
While some prefer to bask in the glory of the summertime and hit the pool or the beach, there’s nothing quite like stepping on the ski slopes during the wintertime. With the changing of the seasons comes the changing of the timings at major ski resorts. Here are some key facts about when the skiing starts and ends at Keystone:
When Does Night Skiing Start At Keystone?
Skiing at Keystone starts at 7:00 pm on Friday and Saturday night. On Sunday and Monday night, skiing starts at 10:00 pm. On Thursday and Sunday night, night skiing is available throughout the season (at least until 10:00 pm). While it is best to call ahead and make sure, it is sometimes difficult to find out what times the lifts are running at the moment you are trying to make a move on the slopes. Also, day passes work for the entire day, so you will not be restricted to certain hours. This makes it convenient for those who want to ski during the day but don’t want to be restricted by the hours the lift is running.
What Do I Wear On My Ski Trip To Keystone?
The resort is located in Northwest Pennsylvania, so you will need the appropriate gear to brave the cold. You will not only need to have ski equipment, but you will also need snowmobile gear, since the roads leading to the resort are mostly unlit and only visible to experienced eye. Make sure to pack some extra clothes in case you get wet or cold, as the weather can turn on a dime and bring sudden changes. It is best to be prepared for all eventualities. This way you will stay warm and dry, and enjoy the time on the slopes.
Is There Any Specific Equipment I Should Rent Or Buy?
If you are traveling to Keystone with a group of friends or a family, you might want to consider renting or buying a ski boat. Not only will this allow you to explore more trails, but it will also give you a place where you can cook and enjoy some fun times on the water. If you are looking for a cheaper option, you might want to consider camping and hitting the slopes under the stars. You will need to bring your sleeping bags and cook your own food, but it will be a camping adventure that you will always remember.
There are a lot of things to consider before hitting the slopes. From making sure you are physically prepared for the cold to figuring out what type of footwear and gear you should bring. Hopefully, this article will help you make the right decision and have an awesome time on the slopes this season.
