Summit This Week

You can amaze and amuse yourself for a weekend, a month or a lifetime in Summit County, Colorado. It’s the views that impress first. EXiting the Eisenhower Tunnel (whose construction ran from 1968 to 1979), the expanse of the Tenmile and Gore ranges seem to go on forever, the hills growing larger as you get closer to them, enabling you to examine their details based on elevation and season: low, thick shrubs, aspen groves, evergreens and, finally, treeless tundra and boulders, some of which are capped with snow year round. The great outdoors serve as the primary attraction in Summit County. A winter playground for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and more is centered around the region’s four resorts including Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Copper Mountain. In summer, boating and Lake Dillon fishing are popular alongside hiking (from mild to wild) and the daredevil mountain bikers who enjoy the challenges of rocky, banked turns and downhill thrills or road cyclists who circle the reservoir or dare to summit Loveland or Vail Pass. Developed as a central resource for both locals and guests, SummitThisWeek.com is the region’s best guide to what’s happening in the hills or around town, so visit often to check out the schedule of events combined with special daily deals that can make your time here action-packed and more affordable than ever.
