It's easy to stay young in Summit County, especially when you meet 70-year-olds who ski more vertical in a week than some younger folks get in a month. So if you need some inspiration, check out Summit County Seniors.

The group welcomes permanent residents and seasonal visitors ages 55 and older. And guess what? The annual dues are a whopping $10.

The active members enjoy every outdoor activity imaginable. They're also involved in plenty of volunteer opportunities. The Summit County Community and Senior Center organizes rafting trips, hiking and biking clubs, and trips to concerts, theater performances, sporting events, historic locations and other attractions.

Year-round activities include bridge, yoga classes, computer classes and book clubs. The center, located near the County Commons in Frisco, hosts luncheons on Tuesday and Thursday, and dinner on Monday, prepared by their own professional chef.

Copper Mountain Over the Hill Gang began in 1977, when three older ski instructors banded together to support one another's skiing at a time when their friends and family were leaving the sport because of age. They believed skiing was a lifelong sport, and Copper's hundreds of members live by that, skiing four times a week. The key word at Copper is "camaraderie." Weeklong memberships are available to visitors.
