SnoFest, our 29th annual winter party in the high country, will be held Friday – Sunday, January 11-13, 2019 at Keystone Resort.
The best thing about SnoFest – other than the snow, the skiing and ‘boarding, the popular cardboard derby and the camaraderie, of course – is staying overnight in the hush quiet of a ski mountain.
