Visit Keystone's 7,000 pound miniature Chocolate Village!  A working gondola, chocolate waterfall, and a six foot tall white Christmas tree are just some of the amazing sites to see in this yearly event that changes each time.  Also at Keystone, the Mountaintop Spectacular is not to be missed.  With special events like meeting the rescue dogs of the mountain, meeting the snow fort builder, and stargazing, there's something fun for everyone to do that will make Christmas and New Year's sparkle.

A-Basin will host Santa!  You can see him in several places on Christmas eve, and hear the Summit Choral Society sing Christmas carols for some real Christmas cheer.

Go to Copper Mountain on Christmas Eve for the Christmas at Copper Torchlight Parade and Glowstick Pageant!  Want to go to a Christmas Eve service?  The Copper Mountain Community Church offers services on Christmas Eve, and the evening culminates with a grand fireworks display!

Keystone has something for everyone for their New Year's Eve celebrations.  During the day, family friendly fun is on deck with face painting, cookie decorating, and Riparoo's Village Parade to name a few.  The Ski and Ride School Torchlit Parade is fun for all.  As it gets later, everyone can enjoy Fireworks Viewing Party before the New Year's Eve concert.  You'll want to get the kids to bed, though, because later in the night, the concert turns to adult only.

What Kouri's Clients Have to Say

"We entrusted Kouri to handle 3 real estate transactions for us over the past 10 years. She has been in the area since the late 1970s, so she has tremendous familiarity with Summit County properties, both as they exist today and their history of development. Kouri complements her familiarity with Summit County with great competency that, for us, translated into savings to our pocket. She readily puts her tireless energy at work for her clients, which of course helped to build a long-term relationship with us and repeat business without hesitation. She's the best in Summit County!"  -User 0571849 via Zillow.com

"Kouri went above and beyond to help us purchase a home from a thousand miles away, after only one visit to town. She drove us around in the snow and tromped through houses as they were being built and made special Saturday appointments with architects and builders. We are thrilled with Kouri and will definitely be calling her again for any future real estate needs." -User BabsWood via Zillow.com

"I have been a real estate developer/builder in Summit County for almost 20 years. Since day 1 Kouri Wolf has been my Realtor. Together we have completed over 45 real estate transactions. In many cases, the product for sale has been in the construction process, which sometimes is a little more difficult for buyers to visualize as a completed product. Kouri has been very successful in helping the buyer see the potential product as completed, and therefore get them to contract. Often, we have gone to contract months before product completion and closing. Kouri's follow through from contract to closing has always been special. She maintains continuous contact with the Buyer during the process, and keeps them up to speed. She also constantly keeps me advised of contract deadlines, I need to meet. I have always found Kouri to be extremely professional in our experiences. I highly recommend Kouri for your real estate needs." - User lgl968 via Zillow.com

"We were looking for a larger condo in Summit County. Kouri listened carefully to our requirements and showed us several condos that met our specs. As the process continued, we wanted to expand our search to include single family homes. She was patient with us as we went through the process. She sold our condo and helped find the home we wanted. Kouri is professional, available, forthright, honest, knowledgeable, willing to invest the time needed to deliver a great result and a delightful person." -User johnaolsen via Zillow.com
