Temperatures are droppings, flakes are starting to fall, and resorts all across the United States are opening for the winter season. Among them is Keystone Resort, located in Summit County, Colorado, which started turning their lifts last week.
We got in touch with Summit County local snowboarder Leslie Glenn for her insight into all the action during opening day. Check out what she said in this edition of “Say Anything.”
What was the vibe at Keystone’s opening day like?
Opening Day at Keystone was so much fun! Everyone there was just happy to be on the mountain and it was evident in all smiles and friendly chatter everywhere you went.
What did you think of the park set-up, and what was your favorite feature?
My favorite thing about the park set-up was how many amazing features there were to choose from: 25 total! The set-up flowed really well too, as it gave you the right amount of time to set up in between features. If I had to choose one favorite it would be the metal tube on top of the spine because it added variety and is very trick-able.
How did this opening day compare to other opening days you’ve been to?
To be honest, I have never been to an opening day that wasn’t fun. The Colorado resorts all do a fantastic job getting open with a combination of great snowmaking, grooming, and setting up early season parks. Keystone killed it this weekend and I am looking forward to Breckenridge opening next weekend!
What are you most excited for this season?
Powder days definitely top the list along with the Dew Tour at Breckenridge, sunny park, and pipe days, and lots of travel adventures to come.
Check out this edit of opening day shenanigans at Keystone Resort. Be prepared to get stoked!
