There is lots of winter left here in Summit County…in fact March is traditionally our biggest snow month. We are still looking at the possibility of an all time snow fall record if March delivers big.
But looking ahead, don’t forget that Summit County also offers some of the world’s best spring skiing. With Easter falling late on the calendar this year and with our exceptional snow pack, this is the perfect year to plan a spring ski trip to the Frisco Lodge. In addtion to skiing, spring afternoons offer up opportunities for added adventures…hikes, bike rides, fishing, or just relaxing in the warm spring air.
Beat the Crowds
Mid-week stays at the Frisco Lodge are great values with rates significantly lower per night than weekend rates. Enjoy the great snow without the crowds!
