Surrounded by the rarified beauty of the Rocky Mountains west of Denver are enchanting communities that range from the historic Idaho Springs to internationally famous ski resorts such as Vail or Beaver Creek. While the year-round population continues to grow, many Denver metro residents maintain second homes or vacation cabins in the scenic higher elevations of Summit, Eagle, and Clear Creek Counties.
The international ski industry centered around Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge—and nearby Aspen and Steamboat Springs—are the primary drivers of the local economy. Before the snow flies, millions of dollars of revenue are derived from recreational activities like boating, vacationing, fishing and big-game hunting. Each community offers a distinct strength, from sparkling Lake Dillon to Silverthorne’s shopping mecca or Idaho Springs’ historic treasures.
Centrally located in the Rocky Mountains, the region is served by Interstate 70, offering quick and easy access to some of the nation’s most breathtaking scenery and spectacular recreational destinations. The topography varies from snow-capped mountains to rich and open ranch lands.
Eagle County, winner of the state’s “Best Run County Award,” leads the way in transportation efficiencies. The county’s award-winning $9 million passenger opened in 1997, accommodating a 73 percent increase in passengers in its first season and continually expanding its service area to new cities. The region also provides a network of bus services that link key destinations and cities.
The communities of Clear Creek, Eagle, and Summit Counties vary greatly in their atmosphere and cost of living. Whether you select a rustic cabin in the heart of a small town or build a multi-million-dollar mansion nestled against a Vail hillside, the Rocky Mountains provide a backdrop of unrivaled natural beauty at every turn.
Private clubs abound, but first-rate recreational amenities are equally accessible to all. Paved multi-purpose paths for jogging, biking, or in-line skating actually connect towns like Breckenridge, Keystone, Frisco, Silverthorne, Dillon, and Vale. Four-season recreational amenities are virtually beyond compare, set in nature’s own magnificence and finely polished to meet tourism demands.
These “Rocky Mountain” counties are experiencing rapid growth as residential enclaves, custom homes, resorts, and multi-family developments nestle in their valleys or climb dramatic hillsides. Hospitality demands have encouraged world-class amenities from cultural attractions to fine restaurants, state-of-the-art recreation centers, factory outlet shopping, and every imaginable sports facility. Skiers, outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers, champion athletes, business owners, vacationers, ranchers, and retirees are just a few of the residents who enjoy the bounty of this region’s alpine splendor—either as a weekend getaway or a home for all seasons.
