Best of Summit 2005: Entertainment

1. Dillon AmphitheatreFor those viewing the stage of the Dillon Amphitheatre, the best view is located just above and surrounding the stage in the formof a panoramic landscape of Dillon Resevoir and the Tenmile mountain range. How could this place not be the best of Summit? With stage-front dancing for the rock, disco and funk acts, to the mesmerizing historical tales and new age performances, you cant beat free entertainment.2. Sherpa & Yetis 3. Riverwalk

1. Ski Tip LodgeIf you can manage to maintain the person across the table as the focus of your affection rather than the four-star, eclectic cuisine, Keystones Ski Tip Ranch is the No. 1 place to bring a date. Bask in the cozy, moodlit, homestyle atmosphere of this friendly old cabin and try to keep your mind on your honey instead of the mouth-watering dessert you enjoy on a couch in front of the fireplace.2. Hearthstone3. Alpengolw Stube

1. Sapphire PointAs the colors of the sunset coalesce in an array of reds, oranges and yellows before sinking into their reflections in Dillon Reservoir, witnesses cant help but have dreamy lifelong prospects come to mind. This view from the peaceful rocks of Sapphire Point off of Swan Mt. Road is the perfect place to pop the question according to Summit romantics. 2. Keystone Ranch3. Ski Tip

1. The BurnThe Burn fires up ones legs a bit differently than its namesake, the black diamond, thigh-burning terrain on Breckenridges Peak 10. The Burn is a five-piece dubbed as high-altitude funk and is the high-energy favorite of local music enthusiasts. The tunes range from bluegrass originals to burning rock covers, all of which enliven the dancing spirit. 2. Arnie J. Green3. Leon Littlebird

1. Ann WeaverReaders spoke wonders about Ann: Beautiful work … I have several in my home … She really conveys in her pictures the true Summit County. Look for her work on display in local galleries.2. Connie Johnson3. Bonnie Wakeman
