Things To Do in Summit County, CO

Developing a strategy based on your interests is the key toward identifying all the Summit County, CO, things to do because the possibilities are endless. In the middle of the Rocky Mountains, it’s likely that your plan will take you outdoors. You came here for the breathtaking beauty, so you will want to see it from as many perspectives as possible: from a mountain top or hiking trail with a view of the Tenmile and Gore ranges, from a whitewater raft where canyon walls reflect the sun as it bounces off the Arkansas or Colorado rivers or from a sailboat, kayak or standup paddleboard on Lake Dillon as the wind picks up each afternoon. If it’s winter, you might have scoped out the best powder locations for skiing or snowboarding, which can change with daily weather patterns (especially if you’re traveling between Summit County and the Vail Valley). But would you consider other snow sport activities as Frisco things to do? Home to a Nordic Center, Frisco’s cross-country skiing opportunities get you into the natural world as does all-ages snowshoeing. As part of the many Breckenridge things to do, fat tire snow biking is growing in popularity; ask the professionals at ski and bike shops for the best places to go based on current conditions.
