We stayed at Gateway Lodge for six nights, skiing 3 days at Keystone and 1 day each at Vail, Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin. Although by Colorado standards there wasn't a ton of snow in February 2018, the skiing was great and we really enjoyed the variety of trails at Keystone. We like steep groomed trails, and there were some nice long ones there: Diamondback and Starfire were some of our favorites. The night skiing was really good too, over on the front of the mountain by River Run base area. The Gatehouse Lodge was fine to stay in ... we were in efficiency condo 5070, which was in good shape, practical for the two of us with a kitchenette for breakfast and good wifi. However, it's a 15 minute walk with skis to the River Run gondola, which is a bit much. It's better if you time it to catch the free shuttle bus in the morning, where River Run is the next stop. In the afternoon it's harder to catch the timing right, and Gatehouse is the last stop so there's a 20-minute bus ride. We used the communal hot tub and pool once ... not bad although there was an issue with foamy bubbles. You can bring a drink with you if you want. Lots of good restaurants close by ... I had one of the best steaks of my life at Zuma Roadhouse. And up the road in Dillon there are more ... the Arapahoe Cafe and ProFusion were excellent. The other ski areas are easily reached: 20 minutes to Break, 40 minutes to Vail, 10 minutes to Arapahoe Basin. All in all, a great central location with plenty of options for skiing and entertainment about 1.5 hours from Denver.
