Keystone Icing Up For End Of Summer Rail Jam

KEYSTONE, Colo. (CBS4)– Keystone Resort isn’t waiting until the first snowfall to open to boarders and skiers.

The resort had 15 tons of ice brought to the mountain to make a small hill.

It’s all part of the end-of-summer Rail Jam.

“We just really wanted to start the season off with a bang and having an event like this before any other resorts is the right way to do that. We just wanted to give back to our riders and show them a good time,” said Keystone Resort spokesman Walter Lutz.

The Rail Jam kicks off at 11 a.m. Saturday.

It is the earliest event of its kind in Colorado.
