Keystone resort in Colorado is the latest resort to start lifts turning after a super start to season 2011/2012. Recent snowfalls, combined with the prospect of more snow later this weekend and into next week has locals “giddy” with excitement.
With the gondola opening today, the resort kicked things off in style with top to bottom skiing and boarding to scratch the itch of snow enthusiasts.
