Spring skiing will continue at Keystone through April 10 where 100% of the terrain remains open.

The near all-time March snowfall will end Keystone’s 2015-16 season much like it began which was in record territory.

“Keystone had the snowiest early season in 10 years hitting the 100 inch mark by December 15,” said Sara Lococo, Keystone’s Communications Manager.

Season-to-date Keystone has received 284 inches of snow, or more than 23.5 feet.
