Summit County is located among the high peaks of the Colorado Rockies, immediately west of the Continental Divide, only an hour’s drive from the Denver metropolitan area.  Our dry, high-alpine climate yields long, snowy winters that have attracted world-class ski resorts. We have pleasantly warm summers that are ideal for hiking, biking, fishing, backpacking, kayaking and other forms of recreation.
