Get ready to adventure further to new heights this winter at Keystone! Rise high above the trees where snow-much-fun awaits and the views are just the icing on the cake. Hoot and holler as you zig-zag through glades or make wide-open bowl turns that are oh-so-sweet. Make your mark on themountain playground, and for the first time ever at Keystone, get a lift to more than 500 acres of fun above the trees in Bergman and Erickson Bowls.
Construction is underway to bring lift-served access to more than 500 acres of terrain in Bergman and Erickson Bowls for the 2022/23 winter season. As a part of this project, the resort is building a new high-speed 6-passenger chairlift in Bergman Bowl, as well as new trails, additional snowmaking and an expansion to the Outpost Restaurant. While Bergman and Erickson Bowls have previously been open for hike-to skiing and riding access at the resort, much of Keystone’s hike-to bowl terrain has largely gone under-utilized at the resort.
“It’s going to be a game-changer. Keystone is the hidden gem for advanced skiers and riders, but this new terrain will also allow families and all guests to get above the tree line without hiking. I think it will completely change how our guests, especially hard-charging locals, and Front Range residents, ski and ride the mountain.”– said Chris Sorensen, Vice President and General Manager of Keystone Resort.
“It’s definitely going to make it a more inclusive experience,” says Keystone patrol cat ski specialist Preston Burns. “There’s going to be access for the vast majority rather than the minority to get up into that area.”
For the first time ever this winter, both Bergman and Erickson Bowls will be accessible by lift to a variety of skiers and riders. The new lift will allow guests to easily lap mellow and welcoming high alpine terrain in Bergman Bowl, as well as access more advanced terrain in Erickson Bowl, which will connect back to the Outback and Wayback lifts. For those guests still looking to earn their turns and reach more untouched terrain, Independence Bowl will continue to provide hike-to and hike-out terrain.
