Getting to Keystone
There are a few different routes to get to Keystone Mountain. Perhaps the easiest route from Denver is to head west on I-70 toward Grand Junction. Once you go through the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnel, take the Dillon/Silverthorne exit and head southeast on Highway 6 to Keystone. Another option from Denver is over Loveland Pass. The pass can be easily accessed off of I-70, however it can be a little dicey in winter months. Checking CDOT is probably one of the best ways that you can prepare for the road ahead.
