First early opening for Breck and Keystone in nearly 10 years due to the incredible early season conditions!
Ideal early season conditions, including natural snow and consistent snowmaking operations, has set the stage for early opening days at both Breckenridge Ski Resort and Keystone Resort. Up to five feet of snow has fallen across Breck and Keystone since mid-October, with up to four feet of snow in the past week alone. Thanks to natural snowfall, productive snowmaking and a tremendous amount of effort and teamwork at the resorts, both Breckenridge Ski Resort and Keystone Resort will open early for the 2018-19 winter season!! We will kick off the season Wednesday, Nov. 7th at 9 a.m., two days ahead of the anticipated opening dates, Friday, Nov. 9.
Please be reminded that limited terrain and early season conditions exist. Breckenridge Ski Resort and Keystone Resort require all skiers and riders to observe all posted signs and warnings. Closed trails may contain hazards due to limited natural snow coverage and snowmaking operations. For the safety of all guests, please keep off closed trails and out of closed areas. Uphill access at both Breckenridge and Keystone is currently not permitted due to early season mountain preparations and snowmaking. Once early season operations are complete and the resort has adequate terrain to safely permit these activities, each resort will announce when uphill access is open to guests.
