3. Get the historic Keystone Experience at Ski Tip Lodge
Looking for a unique lodging and dining opportunity in beautiful east Keystone? Look no further than Ski Tip Lodge and Restaurant, an 1800’s stagecoach stop that was renovated by Max & Edna Dercum, founders of both Keystone Ski Resort and Arapahoe Basin. As skiing grew in the area, Ski Tip became a hub for breakfast, après, lodging, and telling tall ski tales! The legend continues today as guests can lodge and dine at one of the most historic spots in Keystone. This summer, Ski Tip will be offering après sessions on Fridays and Saturdays so you can sit, sip, and unwind with gorgeous and historic views of Keystone!
Get your head in the clouds at Mountain Top Yoga on Keystone’s Dercum Mountain, only available on Saturdays and Sundays from June 24th until September 3rd! You choose your adventure – take the scenic gondola ride to the top of the mountain in just 12 minutes, OR, get your heart pumping with a hike to the top – just make sure you leave plenty of time to make it to the Summit! The instructors are able to provide tips for all levels of yoga experience, so don’t sweat it, just show up and flow! Whether you’re coming to Saturday, Sunday, or both days of Keystone Wine & Jazz Festival, you’ll want to make a weekend of out it just for this!
PRO TIP: If you’re not feeling a hike up, hike down after the yoga class instead to take in the views with a little less sweat!
