River Run Village is the newest base area at the Keystone Resort. The site is home to several boutique shops, condominium complexes, exquisite restaurants, and the River Run Condominiums. Living here, you will be within walking distance of the River Run Gondola and the surrounding slopes. The area also has nearby ski rental shops, small markets, and restaurants, so residents and tourists are close to everything without the need to drive anywhere. If you are not a skier, don't worry because, in summer, the area is the perfect place for those who like to do some downhill mountain biking.

The Condominiums

The River Run Village Condominiums is a collection of condominium buildings in the Village, including properties such as the Arapahoe Lodge, Black Bear Condominiums, Buffalo Lodge, Dakota Lodge, Expedition Station, Jack Pine Lodge, Mill Creek Townhomes, River Bank Lodge, Silver Mill Condominiums, and the Springs. These condominiums offer a variety of attractive properties and provide individuals with unique preferences regarding decor, building configurations, amenities, views, and location. This selection is ideal if you're looking for specific sleeping arrangements or amenity requests. In addition, Village owners can also access an outdoor pool, a hot tub, and underground heated parking.

Kindred Resort is a new addition to the River Run Village, located very close to the gondola. The resort's design is a mixed-use development featuring an amazing Ski-In, Ski-Out Hotel with 95 exquisite residences that range from one to four bedrooms. Those staying in the resort will enjoy the luxurious amenities and will be just a short distance from the fabulous ski slopes of Keystone Resort. This makes the condominiums an excellent choice for those seeking walking access to the slopes and proximity to amenities.


There are townhomes on the forested perimeter of River Run Village if you are looking for an alternative to a condominium. These luxurious units are within walking distance of the gondola and Village activities and present owners with spectacular views. This spacious accommodation offers residents and guests the ideal balance of convenience and charm, allowing them to be close to the action and the activities they enjoy while still providing them with a feeling of seclusion. Additionally, these townhomes feature spacious living areas, access to heated pools and hot tubs, an in-unit laundry, and high-quality kitchens.

Single-family homes

Dercum's Dash is an exclusive new development for single-family residents and is changing slope-side living in the Colorado Rockies landscape. A national forest surrounds these luxury residences making the area a perfect retreat. The homes are only a short walk from the bustling Village. This intimate community is everything you have ever dreamed of and suits those looking for a private haven mere steps away from the beautiful mountains.

The community

The Warren Station for the Arts in the heart of River Run Village is convenient and only steps away from various lodging, restaurants, and other fun activities. This venue offers residents and visitors unique and memorable experiences, including seminars and series, concerts and other musical entertainment, festivals, and weddings. It is the ultimate location to catch happy hour while enjoying fantastic performances from local and regional musicians.

Ski Tip Ranch

The Ski Tip Ranch is a neighborhood just outside River Run Village. It has the oldest and most historic restaurant and lodge, Ski Tip Lodge, which entices guests with large fireplaces and exquisite dining. The location is also ideal for those exploring the area's summer and winter activities, especially since the ski slopes are just a short shuttle away. Stunning views of the nearby mountains also surround the site, making the area an ideal place for families and friends to gather and relax.

Experience the River Run Village lifestyle

River Run Village is known for its fun events and activities, including parades, ice sculpture contests, and Kidtopia events. An outdoor fire pit near the main plaza lets people warm up after they hit the slopes. In the winter, the area provides weekly fireworks, and those looking for music and some entertainment can find a showcase of concerts and festivals in the main events plaza throughout the year, including:
  • The Keystone Wine & Jazz Festival.
  • Bluegrass and Beer Festival.
  • Mardi Gras, Bacon, and Bourbon Festival.
  • Oktoberfest, as well as street parties and tons of fun activities for the kids.

More importantly, since the area is always family-friendly, even during the busier times of the year, you will find that early nights are in order in Keystone. This ensures everyone wakes up fresh and ready to hit the ski runs or head to the river for early morning fishing.

The Snake River

The north fork of the Snake River runs through River Run Village. This pristine river is easily accessible and offers spectacular views and peaceful outdoor spaces. It's a short walk for residents to the river, where you can enjoy fly-fishing on the water before heading to Montezuma Roadhouse for drinks and dinner after a day in the sun.
