Well I would not say it has a reputation for being the best. I know people that revolted over the housing and it's condition. And I have seen it myself.

I think it depends on who you are. If you are very young, don't have a problem with communal living and don't mind roughing it, then you can probably do ok. But it's probably something the vast majority of people would not enjoy for more than a year or two.

I would do a search of the Colorado forum for Vail and Keystone, there is already a wealth of info posted, including some about employee housing.

Wink Keystone employee housing

Years ago—and I cannot speak for it now—Keystone had some rather nice, new employee housing.

It was located more or less directly across from the main lodge, so readily accessible to central Keystone, as well as employee busing out front. As said, new then, and well built, so possibly still nice if maintained. Rooms were configured two beds and thus residents to a room, with two rooms (for a total of four residents) sharing a common bath situated between them. The rent charged then was a bargain, and all inclusive in including utilities.

Presumably things have changed, and for all I know Keystone may have even more options in employee housing now. Or none at all, although that seems unlikely. Given the nature of such things, it would probably be best if one were single and with a preference for bargains in Spartan simplicity over luxurious comforts. Chances are they still cannot meet demand, so aside from having a position lined up in advance, inquire after and do so as well with housing options.
