Our Maintenance Manager wanted to share some of the things to do in Summit County that he has enjoyed.  A resident and mortgage broker as well, Keith is a great asset to Rocky Mountain Resort Management and his comments below are worth exploring.  Let us know what you think!hiking-colorado


Lake Dillon, CO is famous for its sailing . we have 2 marinas one in dillon and one in frisco. the dillon yacht club was formed in 1968 it is the highest sailing club in the nation. you can rent a boat or take sailing lessons. boats range from small keel boats to 22 foot sail boats. they also have power boat and pontoon boat rentals. a day on the lake is a must while visiting summit county.

Float Fishing

While floating one of Summit County’s rivers you can fish, a great time with a professional guide! summit county has numerous fishing guides offering float trips. please check with RMRM guest relations for all the details.

Country Boy Mine

This a great time locally owned and operated. enter the world of a gold miner, pan for gold,
try the emergency miner shute ,what a blast!  one of my favorites when company is in town

White Water Rafting

Summit County, CO has access to numerous rivers for exciting rafting we also have a few spots for the whole family to enjoy river rafting. perhaps u want to try kayaking, we have great contacts for all your rafting and kayaking needs.


Saving the best for last summit county hiking options are numerous. my favorite is a hike just south of breckenridge, Mohawk lake. the trail follows a beautiful mtn stream to lower Mohawk lake. for the more adventurous u can keep going to upper Mohawk lake. this is a highalpine environment with tons of wildflowers. summit county also has more family oriented hikes like tenderfoot mtn in dillon. either way your rmrm guest relations mngr can set u on your way to a great week in the mountains

Copper Mountain – Summer Is Here!

Posted in: Copper Mountain- Jun 19, 2009 No Comments


Summer has arrived at Copper Mountain!  Celebrate Copper’s opening weekend, with free live music by MooseKnuckle and Mystery Achievement from 4-6 p.m. at Alpinista Mountain Bistro on Saturday, June 20, activities, specials and promotions.  Also, don’t miss the opening of Copper Creek today!  Enjoy some of your favorite summer activities at Copper such as Go-Karts, scenic chairlift rides, the climbing wall, West Lake activities, mini-golf, the Quad Power Jump and much more.  If you make to Copper Mountain this weekend let us know how it was!!


There is no shortage of family events at Copper this summer.  Copper brings back favorites and also introduces new events – the Mountain Home & Outdoor Expo, the Copper Cup, and extended guitar and songwriter’s workshops during Guitar Town and Copper Country.

3 Ring Weekend, July 3-5, will feature a live performance by the Neil Diamond tribute band Super Diamond, the first annual Reuse, Recycle, Rummage Sale, and continue with the environmental focus from last summer – Red, White, Blue and Green.  Back for the 20th year is the annual Courage Classic, July 25-27, raising money for the Children’s Hospital in Denver, with a 157-mile ride. Working in partnership with the Davis Phinney Foundation to raise funds for Parkinson’s disease research, the famous Copper Triangle, August 1, has long been considered one of Colorado’s classic alpine road rides.

Guitar Town, August 7-9, will return for a 5th consecutive year, with the world’s best guitarists, featuring free guitar workshops, free live music, free screenings of the film Rock Prophecies, the ArtGuitar Silent Auction, Guitar Hero contests, and kid’s music activities all weekend. Make sure to check out 16-yr-old Amanda Shaw, a young music protégé, playing at Copper Country on Saturday, September 5.  New this year, and in conjunction with Guitar Town, is the Mountain Home & Outdoor Expo, August 8-9, showcasing the region’s best designers, builders and green practices.

A Labor Day festival tradition at Copper Mountain, Copper Country, September 4-6, during the annual Homeowner’s Weekend, celebrates the best of the American spirit.  Incredible free live music from headliners America and Little Feat, the Copper Country Arts Festival, a songwriter’s workshop, kids’ crafts, Copper Kids’ Corral, mechanical bull rides, a petting zoo and pony rides come together to make it THE Labor Day event for the entire family.

A new event this summer is the Copper Cup, August 28-30, which is a part of the Mountain States Cup Championship Series, the largest full-discipline mountain biking race series in the US.  In addition, Guitar Town is offering an extended guitar clinic on August 5-6 and Copper Country is offering a songwriter’s workshop prior to the weekend.

Keystone Skier Bridge

Posted in: Keystone- Jun 18, 2009 No Comments

The new Skier Bridge at the base of Keystone’s River Run Village is due to open for the July 4th celebrations!  This bridge is designed to allow guests to ski directly from the mountain into a newly enhanced skier plaza and skier services area.   We are so excited to have the skier bridge coming into the new Gondola that was added the the Keystone Mountain just last year.  This bridge is expected to cost $6 million dollars when it is completed.

The Gondola was complete during the 2008 summer and has a vertical rise

River Run Gondola

River Run Gondola

of 2,307 feet and a top-to-bottom average trip time of less than 12 minutes, the new eight-passenger River Run Gondola transports 2,400 people per hour, more than twice the amount of the old gondola.  This Gondola is planned to run both winter and summer.

I enjoyed the Gondola this past winter, but I was disappointed in the fact that it had no singles line.  The fact that Keystone wanted to fit 8 people in the cabin was a bit unrealistic as well.  When you add skis and snowboards eight is not a realistic number, but Keystone was insistenton forcing the issue to prove a point – what point I am not sure!  With that said the appearance, style and roomy cabins (with 5 to 6 people) and speed of the new Gondola at Keystone is a welcome add to this skier.  Did you experience the new Gondola this year?  If so what was your experience?
