Among Summit County resorts, Keystone activities and programs offer a stellar lineup of regularly scheduled things to do in summer and winter. Group lessons and outings rule the day when it comes to Keystone activities. In summer, family and ranger hikes lead upward to check out signs of nature’s many mountain creatures and to put a name to the area’s wildflower varieties. Clinics at the Keystone Bike Academy develop skills for riders of all abilities. Bike 101 introduces the sport, its equipment and how to balance, shift and control your speed. Bike 202 provides instruction on how to navigate sharp turns and corners and to ride on loose dirt. The smallest of riders (ages 2 through 5) can compete in the Strider Bike Series.

The Keystone Tennis Center features two indoor and eight outdoor courts with drop-in clinics for juniors and adults as well as several tournaments throughout the summer.
