cat skiing keystoneAll right, let me just straighten this out. First off, Keystone has ~200$ cat skiing tours that are an all day type thing (disclaimer - never done it myself). They will take you out to Independence, Bergman, and Erickson bowls. All of these bowls are very short in pitch and only Indy and Erickson have any steepness to them. If your name is UT_hucker and your from Utah and like to huck stuff, than I think you will be severly disappointed both in snow quality and "huckiness". Bergman is very flat, Erickson faces directly south, and only Indy has any pitch and has good snow. BTW if you aren't on the cat tour, Indy is a long hike out, and you must hike out of the bowl using your own muscle once you've skied down. I met a snowboarder from virginia who learned the hard way when he couldn't find the $5 cat ride out of Indy bowl and had to hike the 1 mile, +1000 ft. vertical hike out.
Second, keystone has a cat shuttle - totally separate from the cat tour - that brings you up to the top of the outback bowls (north and south bowl) for $5 a ride. Both bowls are and easy a 5-15 minute hike depending on how far you decide to hike. If you're from sea-level this could be strenuous.
OK - so 2 separate Cats:
1. $5 cat shuttles to Outback bowls
2. ~$200 all day cat tours to Bergman, Erickson, and Indy bowls
