We have two kids who will be 5 and 8 when we plan to go. I'm trying to find the best place to base ourselves and I have been reading on the options, but never having been to Keystone, I can't seem to make a decision. It seems that the ski school at Mountain House gets the nod. They have the "Camp Keystone" which has some nice features - same instructor for the week and some after ski activities. I was particularly interested in the kids' night out ;-) However, River Run seems to have other kid-friendly activities, like the fireworks, etc.
So, in your opinion, which base would have the most kid-friendly activities? Which base has the most restaurants (I don't cook on vacation!). We'll probably be in bed by 8 pm, but do want to catch dinner and some type of activity between 5:00 and 7:30 pm. Also, how easy is it to go from one base to another by shuttle?
