Summit County is in the heart of the mountains. Within thirty minutes you can be in almost a dozen ski resorts and therefore very convenient for skiing.
Summit County is also a mecca for amazing summer experiences.
Today, I took the ten mile hike on Mesa Cortina. The trek is simply breathtaking. The view of Buffalo mountain looming in the background is spectacular.
The hike is not for beginners and at points especially the last mile the trail is challenging. The pain is worth it as the waterfall is something to see. The view of the surrounding area while sitting on the large rocks is special.
I hope you put this on your must visit list. You will not regret it.
