Summit County is one of the most scenic counties in Colorado. To many, Summit County is Colorado’s high country, home to four world-class ski resorts and some of the most-visited mountain peaks in Colorado.

Though Summit County’s reputation was made by its world-class ski mountains — Arapahoe Basin, Copper, Keystone, Breckenridge and Vail are just minutes away — its warm-weather outdoor activities are just as fabulous. Visit for hiking, biking, fly fishing, horseback riding and the don’t-miss thrill of Colorado white water rafting.
