Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Just before dropping in on a last run halfway up Loveland Pass, these backcountry skiers pause in remembrance of the five people killed near this spot on Sheep Creek last year on April 20, which became the deadliest avalanche for Colorado in more than 50 years. The skiers were part of the 13th annual Corn Harvest, a benefit for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC), held at nearby Loveland Ski Area, which had several hundred backcountry enthusiasts attending and raising thousands of dollars for the CAIC. Loveland Ski Area officially closes on Sunday, May 4. Visit for more information.
