Keystone’s first month of summer is packed with enticing explorations. From mountaintop summer snow tubing to the Bacon & Bourbon Festival, here are the top activities to enjoy at Keystone Resort this month:
 
Mountaintop Summer Snow Tubing
Guests can still get their adrenaline fix this summer at the Adventure Point tubing hill. After an epic winter season, Keystone’s summer stash of snow is bigger and better than ever. Situated at 11,640-feet elevation atop Dercum Mountain, Keystone boasts the only summer snow tubing operation in Colorado held on actual snow. Guests can zip down multiple tubing lanes, without all the winter apparel, and enjoy conveyor-lift access back to the top.
 
Feel the Thrill of Downhill
Starting June 7, the Keystone Bike Park will be open daily. The Bike Park features 34 lift-serviced singletrack mountain biking trails, with progressive terrain welcoming riders of all ability levels. Check out several group ride options ranging from fun free downhill events, to weekly group rides dedicated to women. Plus, the Keystone Bike Academy caters to riders of all levels offering beginner clinics, private lessons and downhill guides. With lingering on-mountain snow from Keystone’s exceptional winter season, trails will open on a rolling basis throughout June, as conditions permit. Current trail offerings can be found online at KeystoneBikePark.com. Bike and full downhill gear rentals are conveniently available at Keystone Sports locations in the resort’s River Run Village, and Bike Park Season Passes may be purchased now by visiting KeystoneResort.com.
 
Get On the Green
Keystone Resort is home to two distinct 18-hole golf facilities, offering 36-holes of championship golf in one idyllic setting. The River Course offers impressive elevation changes, variable bunkers, water hazards and six sets of tees on each hole to challenge and welcome golfers of all ability levels. Keystone Ranch Golf Course is set on historic ranch land where original structures and old western heritage remain throughout the course, providing a nostalgic feel amongst the breathtaking scenery. New this year is the Family Golf Package which offers free golf and rentals for kids 17 and under, exclusive savings on lodging, golf rates, green fees, practice facility access and free golf on day of arrival with a two night stay.
