Posted by: admin January 27th, 2016

Savor-the-Slopes-Keystone-ColoradoIf you are visiting our Frisco hotel during the first week of February, have we’ve got just the thing for you foodies out there to take advantage of – Savor the Slopes at Keystone. This week-long celebration of culinary specials from some of Keystone’s finest restaurants will certainly make you re-think Keystone as just a ski resort.

Since Keystone is only a short 20-minute drive from the Frisco Lodge, you can certainly take advantage of all seven days of culinary delight, or just pick and choose the events you would like to take part in. Either way, staying at our lodge sets you up perfectly for enjoying all that Savor the Slopes has to offer. Let’s check it out.
