We had a fantastic week staying at River Run villlage for our first white Xmas. Our condo balcony overlooked the bridge and was the closest accomadation and easiest access to the gondola, also perfect for viewing the fireworks at the summit on Xmas Eve. From our bedroom window we could see if the spa was free and there are nice cafes and an excellent pizza shop just metres away. The village was beautifully decorated for Xmas and the staff were amazing, everyone was really helpful and happy and there were lots of nice touches like muesli bars to keep up your energy on the slopes, hot chocolate and the best cookies ever; there seemed to always be some small gift or entertainment. Our lodge was beautifully decorated in an Alpine theme and both bedrooms had a huge triple bed. It was really clean and well appointed and we loved being able to cater for ourselves. There's a huge supermarket in Dillon, so catch the shuttle down to stock up on your weekly supplies. We originally looked at staying in Breckenridge, which is a lovely snow town but I am so pleased we chose River Run it had everything our family could have wished for. Easy access to the slopes a short shuttle ride to the lake for iceskating, snow shoeing and cross country skiing. On Xmas Day it snowed and we were the first booking on the snow tubes which was so much fun and a great start to the day, we took a horse drawn sleigh ride out to a ranch for Xmas dinner which was a perfect end to an excellent week in Keystone.
From booking this six months prior to arriving right through to the dropoff back at Denver airport everything was perfect. We love River Run it was one of the highlights of our six week adventure.
