Explore all the possibilities to Eat, Shop, Play and Stay in every Summit town.
Not everyone gets to live inside a fairytale snow globe in the winter, but the folks in Summit County do. And, if summer could be thusly depicted, too, it would be just as enchanting in this part of Colorado. People flock to Summit County for the beauty that surrounds them every season. In winter, with the average annual snowfall being close to 20 feet (though, in 2016 it was closer to 25 feet!), the scenic backdrop is constantly renewed with glittering white. Spring and summer bring mountain wild flowers. Autumn is painted with the changing green/gold/red leaves of aspen, birch and maple trees. It seems the beauty never fades, it just changes form.
What draws locals to stay and visitors to come and play changes form as well, but by all accounts it’s the snow sports that are the biggest raison d’etre. Summit County’s things to do in the snow take the form of everything you can imagine: skiing, snowboarding, fat biking, cross-country, sledding, sleighing, tubing, skating, snow shoeing … you get the picture, right? It’s nonstop action if you so desire, and this site can give you every detail you need to be a part of the cold-weather fun. Our daily Summit County Snow Reports give you all the info you need to stay safe and find the action, and the Winter Activities and Ski Resorts help you plan your time on the snow.
