This might be lengthy but we just returned and I wanted to share our tips for staying at Keystone Village.
We booked thru Delta Vacations and they bundled everything for us. We really enjoyed this way of booking. Only draw back was that we had to drive 5 miles into Dillon, Co to the local Wyndham office to get our keys and passes. It really wasn't that bad of an inconvenience. Our condo was located in the Dakota building. Our stay included garage parking which was great. Condo was a 2 bedroom 2 bath with a balcony that overlooked the heated pool and 2 hot tubs. We could also see the slopes from our balcony (Suite 8500). We were located on the 3 floor. The first floor had a nice common area with sofas and fireplace. It also housed the ski locker area, a sauna and a bathroom with a shower. The shower has shampoo and conditioner in wall dispensers along with towels in Foyer. 20 feet outside this area was the pool and hot tubes. Very convenient.
Restaurants were very close. I'd say about a 5 min walk to most.
We tried Zumas which was amazing. The fanciest restaurant we visited. We went during happy hour (3-6 I think). Ordered some cocktails and had the BEST waiter- Jeff!!! Ordered appetizers - Brussels sprouts (VERY GOOD) and pretzel bites with queso (just ok). Hubby and I split the lemon chicken. It was good! We ordered the S'more dessert. It was fabulous. Enough for 4 people to share.
Another evening we ate at Kickapoo Tavern. I got the fish tacos!!! Very good!!! Others got a hamburger and said it was one of the best they have ever had. Very casual restaurant. Lots of fun.
We ate at the Pasta House one night. It was OK. Ordered shrimp scampi. Nothing much to write about.
We visited Inxpot. It's a coffee/liquor bar, very casual place. Perfect for midday. Ask about daily special. $4 Irish coffee one day! Had a blueberry muffin too.
The Gondola is the best. We loved getting in the little bubbles and going up the slopes. Kept the wind off. Great trails for us green/ blue skiers. Well marked and long. Schoolmarm (green) was 3.5 miles.
I didn't do the chair lift.
The little red wagons all around are free. Use them to transport your stuff and leave in the common areas for others. Very useful.
We had ski lockers at our condo but choose to pay for ski locker right by the (gondola) slopes. $5 day per skis, per day -worth it not to have to carry those things.
Boot lockers- there are boot lockers right by the (gondola) slopes. It's nice to be able to put those heavy ski boots into those instead of walking around the village in the ski boots. They are right next to the heated bathrooms. Don't know price.
Our lift tickets were good for several ski resorts. We decided to try Breckinridge. It was about 40 min away. We took the free bus over there. You can get a schedule at the information desk at the resort check in. Very Convenient. Bus picked up right outside the ice skating rink. Big bus, charter like.
Breckinridge- free gondola up to peak 8. Beautiful vistas. Lots going on here. Kinda crowded. Many lifts take off from here. No gondolas. Short green runs. If we had to do over we would have gone to the other side of ski area and skied the runs that offered more greens.
After skiing we went into town- walking distance from base of gondola. Had half priced cocktails and appetizers at the Blue River Bistros. (Maybe 3 block walk from Gondola). Martinis were great. Champagne Dream and Snickers were our fave. Capris salad appt yummy too.
From there were walked to The Cantina. Wings, chips and quaso. Very good!! Got a cocktail called a Sex on the Slopes that was served in a military style canteen cup. Equal to a small bucket. VERY Good. Fun place. We UBERD back to Keystone that evening. $22 bucks.
Hope this info helps. We had great fun!!!
