Editor’s Picks: Summit County’s best bets for the weekend

It’s looking to be another gorgeous fall weekend in the High Country. The fall colors are lingering; it’s been fairly warm. It may be good weekend to do some camping or cycling. I’m not going to lie: This weekend I’m looking forward to doing a whole lot of nothing. After a busy summer of concerts, festivals and happenings around the county, it’s time to play a little catch up. Hopefully, this off-season you’re headed out of town for a little R&R by the beach, or visiting family.

If you are in town and looking for something to do, head to Breckenridge and purchase a dining passport. It’s a great way to try a new spot on the cheap, and this fall the proceeds benefit our friends at Summit County Cares.


The Metropolitan Opera is offering its first broadcast of the season at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge on Saturday, Oct. 3.

There are also two art exhibits in the county. At the Art Forum in the County Commons in Frisco, the work of nine local artists is on display near the library, presented by the Summit County Arts Exhibit Committee. Check out a new exhibit called “Before I Die,” put on by the town of Silverthorne. This interactive exhibit will tell you a little bit about your neighbors — and yourself. That will be up at the Outlets at Silverthorne Welcome Center from Oct. 1-4.


A special thanks goes out to Jenise Jensen, a local resident who has been submitting fantastic photos to the Summit Daily. Most recently, you have seen her photos from Boreas Pass in the best drives for fall foliage article that ran last Thursday. In the Explore Summit Weekender, somehow during the design process the credit was switched for two of her great photos and were labeled as someone else’s. My sincere apologies to her for that mistake on our end.

And congratulations to our boys over at Pug Ryan’s and Broken Compass for bringing home very prestigious bronze medals from the Great American Beer Festival that happened last weekend. This is the fifth medal for the Peacemaker Pilsner at Pug’s in a category with more than 60 entries. This is the first award for Broken Compass — what a huge accomplishment after only 16 months in the business.

And lastly, I have to say that this year’s Dancing with the Mountain Stars was an incredible success. I admit to having tears in my eyes during the video about our need for an infusion center in the county, and you couldn’t even tell our local dancers weren’t pros. Kuddos to everyone who was a part of that event, and, if you’re ever in need of future dancers — I’m available.
