It almost goes without saying that Summit County offers the best in downhill and cross-country skiing as well as snowboarding at its many ski resorts. There's more than just countless opportunities for winter adventures. Go sailing on Lake Dillon or shop in more than fifty Silverthorne Factory Outlet Stores. Rent a mountain bike in Frisco and enjoy extensive Summit County bike path system of 47 trails! Four 14ers (mountain peaks 14,000' and higher in elevation) can be climbed nearby. Boating and fishing are popular at Green Mountain Reservoir by Heeney, 20 miles north of I-70. Montezuma, above Keystone, is the only town (we know of) where the pavement ends when it reaches town. Locals describe it as "6 miles and 100 years from Keystone" and will tell you why "winters are why we come, summers are why we stay."

Breckenridge, a National Historic District designation, has restored, gingerbread Victorian houses lining its streets. Set amidst mountain splendor and the Continental Divide for a backdrop, this former mining town was established in an 1859 gold rush - the first permanent settlement on Colorado's Western Slope. Named in honor of Vice President John C. Breckenridge (in order to get a post office more easily). In addition to the diverse terrain on the ski resort's three mountains, Breckenridge, at an elevation of 9,603', has the only Jack Nicklaus-designed municipal golf course, renown musical organizations, and miles of hiking trails. Be sure to check out the human maze at Peak 8 - a fun place to get lost! Surrounded by Arapaho National Forest, the city has fishing on the Upper Blue River or the nearby Mohawk Lakes.

Frisco is at the heart of Summit County and is the Main Street of the Rockies with a world of dining options and shops that will inspire even the most laid back shopper. Start your family bike ride in downtown and explore the 55 miles of paved pathways. The Peninsula Recreation Area, home of the year round Frisco Adventure Park, offers outdoor enthusiasts Frisbee golf, a skate park, and a new bike park with slope style jump trails, dirt jump facility and jump track. In winter families will enjoy the 5-lane 6,000 square foot tubing hill and endless trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Some of the events that attract vacationers every year are the Colorado BBQ Challenge in June, Music on Main Concerts in August, and Wassail Days in December.

Breckenridge Kayak Park is on a narrow portion of the Blue River right behind the Breckenridge Recreation Center. This course consists of 15 features and is perfect for all levels of kayakers. At 1,800-feet in length, it is the longest in the state.

Summit County is home to the richest ski area in Colorado. The area boasts four top ski areas, including Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Copper Mountain Ski Resort and Keystone Ski Resort.
