Lodge-Style Condos Close to Four World-Class Ski Resorts
For devout skiers and snowboarders, few spots on earth can compare to the snow-capped mountains of Summit County in Colorado. Within this relatively small territory tucked in the Rocky Mountains lies four of America's most visited ski resorts, Breckenridge, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Copper Mountain, with 376 runs to explore. Located in the middle of the county and within 17 miles of all four ski resorts, Summit Resort Group's Lake Dillon Condos welcome snow-sport lovers with a great lawn next to the crystal-blue lake, crisscrossed with recreation paths for cross-country skiing and hiking.
Visitors can soak in views of the Rockies from the one-bedroom condo's large glass doors on the patio or balcony. Each of the individually owned condos radiates its own personality—some feature wood-paneled walls and pool tables by the fireplace; others flaunt vintage ski-lodge style, such as roomy leather couches and taxidermy animals adorning the walls. Each living room contains a wood-burning stove or gas fireplace, ideal for warming cold hands after spending the day making snowmen depicting all 535 members of Congress. Upon check-in, guests also receive a 20% voucher from High County Activities to take a winter zipline tour above 44 acres of Rocky Mountain scenery, including the Arkansas River.
Dillon, Colorado: Quaint Mountain Town Close to Unrivaled Skiing
Located 70 miles west of Denver, the small mountain town of Dillon was relocated from its original site in the late 1800s while a water-storage reservoir was completed. Now situated on the northeastern side of Lake Dillon, the town thrives as a ski destination, and peaceful forests and trails lend scenic beauty for outdoors lovers. A free bus system, the Summit Stage, stops at the ski resorts, stores and restaurants in Dillon, as well as nearby towns. Dillon's popular cafés and breweries lure explorers with smokehouse barbecue and award-winning ales.
