Keystone, Colorado (PRWEB) November 15, 2005
Colorado ski season has arrived—in a flurry. Just one day after Keystone Ski Resort opened its doors for the first day of the 2005–06 ski season, Mother Nature lent skiers and riders a helping hand, blowing a substantial winter storm into the area.
The snow began early on Saturday and continued through the weekend, dropping over 16 inches in 48 hours. By Monday morning, both the town and the newly opened ski runs were covered in 1 1/2 feet of fresh Colorado powder. The snow is expected to continue through Wednesday, and is expected to drop an additional 10 – 13 inches of snow.
Keystone Ski Resort, located less than 60 miles west of Denver, is fast becoming one of the nation’s top ski and ride resorts. The resort’s unique base area, River Run Village, plays host countless ski and ride events, festivals and celebrations throughout the year. Keystone is home to the A51 terrain park, Colorado’s largest night terrain park, and boasts the largest overall night skiing operation in all of Colorado.
Keystone kicks-off an epic season of skiing and riding with the first event of the year, the 36 Hours of Keystone ski race. Teams of die-hard skiers and riders compete over 36 hours of non-stop skiing and riding. The team to make the most laps in the 36-hour time period wins a $3,600 cash grand prize. The race begins 9:00 am on Friday, Nov. 18 and continues through 9:00 pm, Saturday, Nov. 19.
