Summit County straddles the Continental Divide along the I-70 corridor with five world-class ski resorts within a snowball's throw of each other.
The top of the Continental Divide offers one thing—high elevation. That translates into cold temperatures for Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland and Keystone. These resorts not only benefit from long ski seasons and reliably deep snows, but mild summers and perfect temperatures for a multitude of summer activities.
Mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing and camping opportunities abound in the summer. Dillon Reservoir provides a scenic high-mountain location to fish, boat and camp. Trophy trout fishing can be found on the Blue River, which flows through the town of Silverthorne and its popular outlet mall.
