This year, Keystone is serving up fun for the whole family, with (drum roll please) not one but TWO on-mountain Snow Forts! That’s right, they are not only bringing the magic of Snow Fort back — Keystone is doubling it.

Don’t miss the World’s LARGEST mountaintop snow fort at Dercum Mountain! The snow fort is the perfect stop before heading to a mountaintop tubing session or is a fun way to enjoy our beautiful mountain while taking a break from the slopes. The nearby Summit House offers breakfast, lunch, snacks, and hot chocolate for an adventure-filled afternoon.

After your mountaintop adventure, head down towards the Mountain House Base Area and check the newest Snow Fort for the kids to play while the parents pop into the Last Lift Bar for some après.
