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.
