Skiing the trees at Keystone

You can find good tree skiing on either side of Keystone's Outback Mountain. As you are riding up the Outback Express lift you will see several trails heading off to your left (skier's right). Timberwolf, The Wolf Den and the other trails in this area all have good tree skiing, especially in between the ski trails. Some of the spacing between the trees is a little bit tight and the area gets skied frequently. You can even find moguls in some of these woods because these ski trails get so much traffic.

There is some tree skiing on North Peak, but this is not as plentiful or worthwhile as the tree skiing on The Outback. As you ride the Outpost Gondola, you will also see some tree skiing that you can access by hiking. This terrain descends directly underneath of the Gondola and it's steeper than almost everything else at Keystone. It also takes a significant amount of snowfall before these trees are skiable. You can see this area in the photo below.

The photo below shows some of the woods on the North Peak that have good tree skiing on powder days.
