Keystone A-Basin Epic Pass?
I have yet to venture out to Colorodo from the shitty bumps of dirt we call mountains in Chicago. I was thinking about getting this pass for $359. Y’all think it’s a good idea? I’ve heard pretty good things about keystone.
That's the pass I've gotten for the past 5 seasons. I fucking LOVE a basin, it's underrated I feel like. As soon as keystone opens everyone stops riding a bay to go over to key. They're both super fun mountains and I would definitely recommend it! I think it pays for itself in like 4 days too so if you're going to be skiing more than that, then yes do it. Breck is fun too if you want to add it but I still favor both keystone and basin to breck. hopefully that helps!
It's a great deal if that's were you want to ski. Keystone obviously has a great park if you're into that. The rest of the terrain on Dercum is pretty easy mostly green/blue runs and gets BUSY quickly. Unless I'm hitting the parks (and there is a separate lift for A51) the only time I'm riding up Dercum is to get over to another peak be that Outback or NP where there is steeper more varied terrain. There is some hike to stuff if you're into that, none of the packs are too bad but they do close the gates early so plan ahead if you're going to be doing that. This wasn't all the time but a few trips we made with friends to Keystone during December/January that our group had to drive around in circles on 6 for over an hour waiting for a parking spot(all free and pay lots were full) to open up so try to get there as early as possible or plan on doing some waiting if you're going over peak season.

Abay is sick. Tons of fun and challenging terrain in a small package. Palli chair is probably one of my favorites in Colorado.
All times are Eastern (-5)
