Frisco, Colorado: Historical Mountain Town near World-Class Skiing
A former mining town that was incorporated in 1880, Frisco sits in the heart of the Rocky Mountains just 70 miles west of Denver. The little town is nicknamed “Main Street of the Rockies” thanks to its quaint charm and proximity to the surrounding peaks. Admission is free at the Frisco Historic Park & Museum, which commemorates the town’s Old West heritage. Check out the park’s preserved log chapel and the schoolhouse museum, which is filled with old photographs and artifacts including vintage fashions from the turn of the 20th century.
Frisco is within short driving distance of four major ski resorts: Copper Mountain, Keystone Resort, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, and Breckenridge Ski Resort. Breckenridge Ski Resort, just 10 miles southeast of Frisco, has 155 trails and 25 acres of terrain park spread out across four slopes. After a day on the mountain, you can browse Breck’s charming main street, lined with boutiques and restaurants. The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance offers seven guided tours that elaborate on the mines, saloons, and resident ghosts of the historic gold-rush town.
There’s plenty to do in Frisco in the warmer months, as well. Bicyclists flock to the Ten Mile Recreational Pathway, a scenic 24-mile trail that sits in the shadows of the Tenmile Range; the path wends past rushing creeks and rewards riders with ample mountain views. In late spring, the Colorado and Arkansas Rivers offer quality whitewater rafting, thanks to high water levels from snowmelt.
