|Harry so your saying Keystone doesnt get good snow fall very often? Or are you just saying the snow isnt good? I've heard ppl talking about how theres good snow and bad snow and so on but since im still a beginer i doubt it i'll know the difference. As long as it snows im good haha. I just dont want it to end up like lake tahoe last year, out of the whole week it probly snowed 2 or 3 times.
Jimmy, the quality of snow (inch for inch) at keystone is up there with the driest and lightest Utah pow, however, unlike Alta keystone is not know for copious amounts of snow. If you are there for a week in January don't expect it to snow 2or3 times during the week. January is kinda a crapshoot when it comes to snowfall. For instance, last year keystone only got about 23 inches of snow during Jan (not good). The year before, the stone had about 60 inches during Jan. All depends on what the jet stream decides to do...
That said, a beginner skier can have a lot of fun at the stone. Dercum mountian has lots and lots of long cruisers, and if you're feeling adventurous the other two mountains have some decent beginner stuff as well.
If you're interest is night life, you'd be better off by staying in Breck, as Keystone pretty much has the Goat, Snake river, Dos Locos (more of a restaurant), and Kickapoo and not much else.
