SAM Magazine-Keystone, Colo., Dec. 18, 2006-Keystone resort has become the first ski area to offer "geocaching." This high-tech treasure hunt challenges players to find hidden "geocaches" that are located via GPS units. "It's a cool way to introduce people to Keystone, as well as a fun kind of adventure for families," resort spokesperson Amy Kemp told the Denver Post in a recent article.

Some visitors checking in for their vacations at Keystone receive a GPS as part of a special lodging package which includes a $150 Garmin eTrex Legend GPS (which the guest keeps). Visitors get a list of coordinates, then embark on their treasure hunt, traveling via chairlift, snowboard or skis, and finding their way-and exploring Keystone's three mountains-with their new GPS. The treasure: each geocache contains a variety of prizes, small gifts, and coupons that can be redeemed in the base village.

Owner, Spring Mountain Ski Area

Congrats to Keystone on adding Geocaching to their list of activities. Spring Mountain started offering Geocaching as an off season activity this past Spring along with being the first ski area in the country to offer Canopy Tours, which we are continuing to offer year-round.
