Keystone Neighbourhood Company

Welcome to the Keystone Neighborhood Company (KNC), an umbrella master association overseeing The River Run mountain village is rich with shopping, dining, family entertainment and is steps from the slopes of Keystone Resort where you can spend the winter months clocking the vertical on your skis or board and the summer months exploring the trails of the Rockies whether it be on foot or on a bike. It is the KNC’s responsibility to maintain the world class River Run Village as well as provide cultural enhancements, recreation, security, special events and oversee Warren Station Center for the Arts for the enjoyment of our owners and guests.


Once a modest mining and ranching town, Ketchum is now a bustling resort town that became a popular ski destination with the settlement of nearby Sun Valley. Bald Mountain towers above the city and draws world class skiers every year. The surrounding wilderness provides a beautiful escape for hiking, trail riding, hunting and sports. Ernest Hemingway was known to have fallen in love with the valley and made his final home in Ketchum.


Designated by TripAdvisor as a “Top World Destination,” The town of Jackson is located at the southern end of the valley. Jackson offers countless opportunities for shopping, dining, and experiencing the local attractions and entertainment, along with countless Jackson Hole hotels and lodging options for visitors to choose from. At the heart of downtown Jackson lies town square with its notable antler arch entrance and boardwalk-lined shops. The stores scattered along the Western boardwalk range from commercial chains and souvenir shops to fashion boutiques and fine art galleries. In fact, Jackson is the fifth nationally recognized arts center in the nation.

Grand County

With a geographic footprint larger than Rhode Island, Grand County is home to six quintessential mountain towns, two ski resorts, and the west portal of Rocky Mountain National Park. Year-round family friendly activities include skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, hiking, camping, biking, and horseback and ATV riding.

Gunnison County

Visitors describe us as authentic … unspoiled … unpretentious … terms not typically associated with today’s glitzy mountain destinations. But Gunnison County is a place where those terms still apply. Western heritage; dramatic, unspoiled natural beauty; genuinely friendly, unpretentious people; and “Colorado’s Last Great Ski Town” await.

Eagle County

Eagle County is made up of many small communities, each as unique and diverse as the people who live there. The county has an incredible geographic diversity from lushly forested Vail, Minturn and Red Cliff to the spacious ranches of Eagle and Gypsum.


Interesting facts and tidbits of information: Denver is one of only two cities in America with eight professional sports teams. And essentials like where to locate the exact elevation of 5,280 feet (1 mile) above sea level (a round brass cap embedded in the western entrance stairs of the State Capitol marks the spot). The more you know before you get here, the more time you can spend taking it all in.

Big Sky Resort Area District

On April 13, 1992, the general electorate of the Big Sky area created the Big Sky Resort Area and adopted a 3% Resort Tax to be charged on “luxury” goods and services not deemed necessities of life. The tax is collected by local businesses within the boundaries of the Resort Area. In 1998, the general electorate of the Big Sky Resort Area then voted to create a District which brought the administration of the resort tax from the county to the local Big Sky area. The District is managed by a five-member elected Board of Directors. Resort taxes are collected and remitted monthly and the Board of Directors appropriates the funds to critical local community services on an annual basis.
