WATCH OUT FOR GIMMICKS!
The NUMBER ONE QUESTION we get is “Do you offer discounted lift tickets?” We do not and the reason is this: As long as you do not buy your ticket at the ticket window, ALL the discounts are the same. Do yourself a favor and stop at the kiosk at the grocery store or go to LIFTOPIA.COM and buy your tickets. We do not offer tickets because we cannot offer a better value than you can easily get using one of these options.
You might have heard of a gimmick called “Kids Ski Free” from the big corporate outfit. There are very few instances that this deal actually makes sense. Why pay twice as much for your accommodations and a $15 per day “amenities fee” to save $45 on a kids ski pass. Don’t take our word for it. Do the math and it will be obvious that “Kids Ski Free” is not a deal at all!
WHY RENT FROM US?
We are the personal property manager of the owner. We are a local family owned business.
Conventional wisdom says that you get a better deal if there is no manager involved. This is largely untrue in a high mountain environment like ours. Either the owner is using a management service on the side and ultimately building this cost into the rate or they are leaving everything to chance. Little problems are a BIG deal at 9,000 feet above sea level and in subzero temps. We are there if you lose your key. Being locked out of your condo in sub-zero temps is no fun. This is not a scare tactic. Every year we help several hundred guests with lock-out problems.
GUARANTEED BEST PRICE:
If you like to look for deals, then help us stay current with our deals. We will pay you to do your research. If you find a better deal on a comparable property, then provide us with clear evidence and we will beat the deal by 10%.
Our rates are as good as the best you will find. You are gaining peace of mind and losing nothing. Your vacation is meant to be enjoyed. We are here to make your experience hassle free.
FEES & TAXES
We are required by law to charge tax on your stay.
We want to be clear, taxes and cleaning fees are not included in the posted rates. We will send you a quote with the breakdown of all costs, so you can see EXACTLY what you are paying.
Many of our competitors build their fees into their rate. This means that YOU are PENALIZED every day you stay with them because you keep paying for the same service over and over again.
Please make an apples to apples comparison. If you present us with a legitimate and comparable quote from someone else, we will beat it by 10%.
THINGS TO DO IN KEYSTONE:
Keystone is the premier destination for various events, festivals and one-of-a-kind attractions. These include things such as Mardi Gras, Wine Festival, Beer and Blues Festival, Full Production Concerts, Discovery Days for kids, Art Shows, a real ice castle at the top of the mountain for kids and adults to explore, panning for gold, bungee jumping, and much more. Additionally, you can enjoy Mine Tours, Historical Bus Tours, ATV tours, Four-wheel drive tours, Snowmobiling, horseback riding and sleigh rides. Check out our website for more details on events taking place during your vacation.
Activities include championship golfing (2 courses in Keystone), Mountain biking (down, not up), Wild Life Tours, the best hiking in North America, White Water Rafting, Fly Fishing, and boating, just to name a few. There also Keystone festivals almost every weekend during the summer.

Black Bear 8057
The condo was in a very good location for getting to the gondola for ski season. We were here in July but it still provided a location for getting the lift for mountain biking which my sons did. It was very clean with a good view of the mountain.

Comfortable condo in great location
This condo is very comfortable for four people. The location is great. You can walk or ride your bike to all of the shops and restaurants. The bike lift is a short distance away and the paved path is just down a short street. Great place to stay in Keystone!

Spring Break Stay
We loved the location! Couldn't have been better. The hot tub and sauna was great. Perfect for a family of four. We have two kids, 13 and 8, and it was an easy walk to the gondola for them. Everything within walking distance. Overall, very satisfied.

Wonderful time and the location of this condo was perfect! Just a short walk to the River Run gondola and the bars and restaurants that line the main drag. We had use of the pool and hot tub of an adjoining building, which was heavenly after a day on the slopes. Would highly recommend!

Perfect LocationGuest comment entered by manager
We couldn't have asked for a better location. Black Bear was the closest to the gondola and River Run Village had everything that we were looking for. Also, SCMR enabled us to get great discounts for ski rentals and restaurants. Thanks for the stay!

Our vacation here at Black Bear was absolutely incredible! The location is unbeatable!!!! Everything is steps away from the front door...coffee shop, ski rentals, convenient stores, etc. This condo has a great view of the mountain and is truly "the closest to the gondola!" I highly recommend this condo! LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!!
