Frisco Colorado is widely known as a major hub to easily access all of Summit County’s world-class ski resorts – hence, a winter paradise.

When the snow finally starts to melt in Summit County, it’s time to get out and explore what’s been hiding underneath.

Springtime in the Rockies can be just as frustrating as it is rewarding to those visiting the high country this time of year. Why?

So, with that in mind here are some tips for making the most of…

For the Rocky Mountains’ standards this has not been an epic snow season as of yet. However, this typically means lots of spring snow on the way, and hence, lots of great skiing/riding at our Summit County ski resorts.

Visiting the Colorado high country can be both beautiful and dangerous at the same time. No, I am not talking about avalanche danger (though that is a valid concern), but instead, the effect that the extreme altitude can have on your body. Even if you run 10 miles a day and consider yourself to be in tip-top shape, the altitude can, and will, get to you unless you know how to combat altitude…

But, even more importantly, our bed and breakfast has been a part of our family’s heritage for over 50 years.

I was recently perusing the Town of Frisco’s website and came across an interesting article that outlined the detailed history of the town. With the Thanksgiving holiday on my mind this week, I was instantly intrigued by the fact that the nomadic Ute Indians entered Vail Pass from the west in 4800 B.C., and settled the land we now know as Frisco. The Ute Indians occupied Summit County for hundreds…

Both bed & breakfast (B&B) establishments and hotels/motels are popular forms of tourist accommodations; however, depending on where you travel, the place you end up staying can greatly add value to your overall experience.

It may be the middle of May, but the snow is still falling (as evident by the foot of snow fallen in the past week) and Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort is still operating.

So, as the ski patrol posted on…
