Summit County is all sunshine and warmth right now with scattered snow showers predicted into the weekend and next week. It's the perfect time to explore one of the area's top-tier ski resorts like Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin or Keystone. Don't forget sunscreen and to dress in layers (so y'all can shed a few). Skiers and riders are sure to enjoy spring-like conditions in Colorado High Country!
Then head to the Town of Breckenridge to view snow sculptures on display (weather permitting) through Sunday, Feb. 5. The outside art is left over from the International Snow Sculpture Championships held last week.

Watch The Super Bowl
New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons face off this Sunday, Feb. 5, in Houston at the Super Bowl. Places like Dillon Dam Brewery in Dillon, Ollie's Pub and Grub in Frisco, Kenosha Steakhouse in Breckenridge and Bakers' Brewery in Silverthorne offer TVs (that will no doubt feature the big game).
Those not into the idea of watching the Super Bowl (there may be a few) should consider Sunday afternoon as prime time to get some uninterrupted runs on one of Summit County's four mountains. Lift lines are sure to be shorter than normal.
The game kicks off at 4:30 p.m. mountain time on Fox.
