Between the wildlife, the rivers that are full of snow melt runoff, farmer’s markets & multiple festivals every weekend, there is starting to be a lot going on up here.
KODI Rafting is running the Blue, Colorado, Arkansas, Clear Creek and (big treat) Tenmile Creek right now. Twin Seasons Vacations guests can ride with KODI for less. As us about your discount!
The elk and moose can be seen in random locations around town. The two shots below were taken from a car window, as an example of how easy it is to see them. If you can, come see them and us! June is heating up with weekend festivals this Saturday in Dillon, Keystone, Copper Mountain and Breckenridge. Beer, art, music, food, roasted marshmallows, the list goes on. It is all getting started and the weather could not better. 78F for the high today. Grab your shorts and hit the road!
For only the second time all winter, school’s out today in Summit County, Colorado, due to 2 feet of snow that has fallen in the last 18 hours. With more snow on the way, this is an epic storm.
Spring skiing continues at A-Basin and Loveland. Though at the moment you may have to wait for CDOT to re-open all the access roads.

The ski season is hardly over even after the Vail Resorts properties and Copper Mountain have closed.
