Keystone Resort Debuts New High-Speed 6-Passenger Peru Express Lift

Keystone, Colo. — Nov. 24, 2021 — Today, Keystone Resort opened its new high-speed 6-passenger Peru Express Lift located in the Mountain House base area of the resort. The new lift greatly enhances the on-mountain guest experience and improves skier and rider circulation out of the Mountain House base area, providing guests more time to enjoy the mountain.

“I could not be more excited to see this project come to life at Keystone,” said Chris Sorensen, Keystone’s new vice president, and general manager. “The teams started working on this as soon as the mountain closed last spring and they have put in a tremendous amount of work from start to finish. This is just the beginning though, and I’m thrilled to continue enhancing the guest experience here at Keystone as we look ahead to the Bergman Bowl project set to debut next winter.” 

With the grand opening of the new lift, the Mountain House base area is now open for skiing and riding for the season. Guests celebrated by taking laps on the new chair and enjoying free donuts and hot chocolate. Keystone is now offering skiers and riders access to more than 130 acres of terrain, 10 trails and skiing and riding out of two base areas.

Reminder, Epic Pass products are currently on sale at Your last chance to buy a pass for this season and lock in the best deal in skiing and riding is Dec. 5.

Coming Next Winter - Bergman Bowl Expansion

Next summer the resort will begin construction to bring lift-served skiing and riding to Bergman Bowl, including a new chairlift, new trails, new snowmaking and an expansion to the Outpost Restaurant. While this area of the resort is currently open for hike-to accessed skiing and riding, this project will improve access to the currently under-utilized terrain, providing lift service to more than 550 acres of intermediate and advanced skiing and riding in the Bergman and Erickson Bowls.
