    The spring is between Keystone annd A-Basin. Coming from Keystone, the spring will be on the left. If you see the Truck run-off, you went too far.

    The city has posted a warning sign next to the spring acknowledging bacteria has been found in the water. They are recommending that you don’t drink raw.

    After talking with 2 locals, there seems to be little risk. One of the locals I spoke with does filter his water. The other seemed not to worry, stating he has been drinking from the creeks near by in recent weeks.

    From Keystone ski resort go towards Arapahoe Basin/ Loveland pass and about two miles up the road where a passing lane opens up look for a wide parking area to your left and a pipe coming out of the mountain side with ice cold water. I’ve been drinking it for three years during skiing season. I believe the commercial bottled water companies or the ski resorts would like to scare people off to increase their water sales but that’s just my opinion. I’m drinking some right now.

      So this spring is still open and running?! I was just told by someone who lives in Dillon that they closed the spring off..

    • Me says:

      I think it got polluted because A-Basin was making snow from a water source that was polluted.  It tasted different after that and then I heard it was no longer any good.  I believe that A-Basin should be taken to court for this.

    Just left this spring. Still open and flowing strong! Ice cold and almost sweet to the taste! Will post pics of it soon.

    Thanks for all the directions. I was able to find this today. It is on Loveland Pass between Keystone and A Basin and is no more than three miles from the Montezuma Rd. exit just as posted. It’s so delicious!

    The spring is not closed.  It’s still flowing strong.  I picked-up about 50 gallons yesterday.  There is signage telling you that the water has been tested and found to have bacteria and they recommend treating the water by filter, boiling or using something like bleach.  However, all of the locals that were filling-up when I was there just drink the water straight from the spring without treatment.  The flow rate at the time I was there was about 12 gallons per minute.  This water makes a fantastic cup of coffee.

    Just visited this spring on Sept 16th. Drank 5 gallons in as many days with no problems whatsoever. I think the warning signs are there so the county can cover it’s arse. Watch my short video on it A+ spring 🙂

    This water is so good! I collect it regularly with no side effects. Less than 2 miles from Montezuma Rd. in Keystone. On left side, turnout; look for pipe coming out of stone structure.

    It’s a couple miles from A basin. I forgot to check the odometer, but it’s actually about a mile from the Montezuma exit (other guy says 3). It’s just past the runaway ramp if you’re coming from a basin. Still fresh and tasty in 2017

      Anyone know if the water has been tested? I’ve once heard that it was, but then a sign was placed there saying it is unsafe to drink because of bacteria, but the sign is covered by stickers now. Then another person said they heard there are dangerous amounts of zinc in it. I used to fill up here all the time, but I’ve been scared to for years now. Would love to know the truth about the water quality of this spring!
