Off the Slopes

This entire area is the place to be during the winter months. With every amenity imaginable, this Colorado resort region offers some of the best value in the entire ski industry. The four ski areas combine for over 6,000 acres of diverse terrain, and accommodations in the area exceed 50,000 rooms, offering close proximity to limitless winter recreational opportunities. On top of all that, you couldn't possibly fit all the fun winter activities into one ski vacation. That's why so many people plan shorter trips, so to get the opportunity to snowshoe awesome hiking trails, or ice skate with the family, tour through ice castles with pretty lights, ice fish on Lake Dillon, and the list goes on and on. We love Summit County!
