This summer me and my brother had the opportunity to ride the lifts at Keystone Mountain and experience some of their trails. It’s great to be able to take the chair up to the top of the mountain. Most of the trails cut across the mountain and run a decent length. On average it took us about a half hour to get down to the bottom. by the end of the day our arms and the palms of our hands were sore from the vibration of absorbing the terrain while going downhill, even with suspension and gloves. It is a bit intimidating riding at keystone because everyone is dressed in full-face helmets, body armor and their bikes look more like motorcycles without the motor. We avoided most of the freeride terrain and stuck to riding the xc trails which were crazy enough.
Here’s a few pics of from the lift and a few of us riding.
