Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

David Witte, author of "World War II at Camp Hale: Blazing a New Trail in the Rockies," will be doing a book signing and presentation Saturday, Dec. 12 from 3–5 p.m. at Next Page Books & Nosh in Frisco. A little about his book: In April 1942, a little over two years before the Tenth Mountain Division officially obtained its name, the U.S. Army began the unprecedented construction of a training facility for its newly acquired ski and mountain troops. Located near Pando in Colorados Sawatch Range, the site eventually known as Camp Hale sits at an elevation of 9,250 feet. Immense challenges in its creation and subsequent training included ongoing racial conflict, the high altitude and blustery winters. However, thanks to contributions from civilian workers and the Womens Army Corps and support from neighboring communities, the camp trained soldiers who helped defeat the Axis powers in World War II.
