At Keystone, one week and a foot of snow in 19 seconds
Keystone's Dercum Mountain got 8 inches of snow in last week's storm, and it's been cold enough to get the snow machines cranking. Which means the resort will be opening on Thursday, November 5. You can preview the product above in this hyperactive clip from the summit, taken from October 27th through yesterday. It gets good right at the end, when angry static and fuzz gives way to stunning sunshine.
Keystone's got about an 18 inch base. The opening, as of right now, will feature one lift, the River Run Gondola, and one complete run, Spring Dipper to River Run. They'll also have a bunny hill working at the mountain's midway point, and their excellent terrain park will be open with one jump (pictured below) and 20 features.
