Breckenridge Mountain elevation
When you drive into Summit County, the Interstate 70 sign says, "Colorado’s Playground". What it doesn't tell you is that you've found the best playground in the nation. Summit County is the tops - not only in elevation (Summit County elevation ranges between 8, 000 and more than 14, 000 feet above sea leve), but also in its world-class ski resorts and epic mountain scenery. It boasts four ski resorts: Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Copper Mountain and Keystone Resort. The main tourist towns - and where most people live - are: Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, Silverthorne, Keystone and Copper Mountain.
Breckenridge has a quaint, Victorian Main Street and nestles right up to the ski area. Dillon is a small town overlooking Dillon Reservoir, and it's located within a short drive of Keystone and Frisco. Frisco sits between Breckenridge, Dillon and Copper and has a bustling Main Street. Keystone has a small lake that makes up part of its world-class resort, and Copper has a small pond and a thriving village that surrounds the ski area. Other, very small towns in Summit County include: Blue River, south of Breckenridge, Heeney, north of Silverthorne, and Montezuma, above Keystone. The U.S. Forest Service owns most of the land in the county, providing thousands of acres of year-round recreation. The Blue River, Snake River and Ten Mile Creek all feed Summit County"s two largest reservoirs, Dillon Reservoir and Green Mountain Reservoir, where boating abounds.
