Summit County in Colorado, sky and fishing surrounded by mountains

Dec 02nd, 2015

If you like scenic landscape and the fresh smell of outdoors than Summit County, Colorado could be the destination for you. This town is located about an hour outside of Denver in the mountains. Here you will find 5 of Colorado´s best ski resorts. My personal favorite resort is Keystone which is very close to Summit County.

If you don´t like the snow or if you go here when the resorts are closed don´t worry there is still much to do. If you like to fish, the waters surrounding the town are much known for their trophy fish. This area is also known for having great whitewater rafting!
