Summit Public Radio announces new high-altitude webcam for weather watchers

Summit Daily staff report

Summit Public Radio announced the addition of a new high-resolution webcam near Breckenridge on Wednesday, meant to provide further resources for community members to keep a watchful eye on weather conditions.

The webcam — located 12,600 feet high on Bald Mountain near Breckenridge — is mounted on Summit Public Radio’s television and radio translator towers, offering a crisp view of the central and northern sections of Summit County. The webcam points north to avoid direct rays from the run, but can be adjusted by SPRTV personnel.

The cameras will provide weather watchers, avalanche forecasters and climate enthusiasts a new toy to check in on the skies around Summit County. The webcam can be accessed at any time on the Summit Public Radio & TV website.
