My Story

Dan Linge - Property Owner
Dan Linge Family Ski Trip Ski Keystone

Keystone has been always been a big part of my family's life. My Dad was one of the original investors when the mountain opened for skiing on November 21, 1970. My sister, brother, Mom, and Dad were all there that day when we broke a bottle of champagne on the Argentine Chairlift to christen the opening.

In the photo above that is Lisa sitting on the chair (age 12), the woman in the background with the floppy blue hat is my mom, Audrey, and yours truly next to her in the red hat and wrap-around sunglasses (John Kay from Steppenwolf wore them too….LOL). It was my Dad's love for skiing that got me hooked at a very young age. I was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but knew I wanted to go to college in Colorado, because of Keystone, etc. Getting to Keystone from the University of Denver was an easy drive in my Ford Torino. My parents had a smaller condo at that time at Wild Irishman, so it was never a problem to find friends to join me for a weekend in the '70s. When the River Run area of Keystone was developed in the mid '90's, we sold off the other condos and purchased #8194 Silver Mill. It's the largest condo in the building and has a killer location and easy to walk to the lifts. Being on one level was a plus too.
