Summit County is distinguished by its stunning Gore and Ten Mile mountain ranges with the breathtaking Lake Dillon in the center. The pristine White River National Forrest is at your doorstep for endless scenic biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, jeeping and snowmobiling trails. Boasting four world class ski areas, five spectacular golf courses and two full service marinas (and the “World’s Highest Yacht Club”); Summit County has the ultimate in both winter and summer recreation.
Our appeal as a premier Colorado mountain resort community is enhanced with our quaint, historic mountain towns with their charming boutiques, shops and art galleries; incredible restaurants, numerous coffee shops and that warm “small town” vibe. The arts are very much a part of our cosmopolitan flare and summertime is bursting with activity. Visit the town sites for the latest, updated event calendars and the ski area sites for the latest snow conditions and activities available. Of course there is the opportunity, when Summit County is your home, to get involved with the numerous community service activities, clubs and organizations.
