We spent our third day in Colorado at Keystone, after spending time at Breckenridge and Vail.
Keystone was the lesser of the three resorts. It consists of a several mountains in a row. The entrance is at the first mountain. Then you need to go up and down over the other mountains to get to the good stuff at the back of the resort.
The conditions were not very good that day because of a strong wind. It did leave some great conditions in the trees.

After spending our first day in Colorado at Breckenridge, we decided to spend our second day at Vail. It was just a short drive down I-70.
At first, we were a little disappointed. Sure it was big. But it was mostly just wider trails than I was used to back east.
Then we followed the signs to the bowls.
That changed everything. Thousands of acres of wide open terrain.

This was a boy’s trip out west.

Actually, it was my first time riding my snowboard on the big mountains. We rented a place in Breckenridge and spent out first day exploring the mountain.
We also spent a day at Vail and a day at Keystone.
