Nestled near the continental divide at the top of the Rockies, the Frisco-Dillon region is a paradise for skiers and snowboarders. With close to ten ski areas within an hour's drive (among them Vail, Breckenridge, and Keystone), mountain lovers will find no lack of slopes to entertain them. Frisco and Dillon, with Silverthorne in between them, stretch along the shore of the Dillon Reservoir to make a tiny, scenic metro area snuggled high among the peaks of the Rockies.
The Frisco-Dillon area has expanded rapidly in the past few decades to provide services for millions of tourists visiting the region each year. As a result, this once sleepy mining town is today overflowing with restaurants, bookstores, hotels, name brand shopping outlets, and other amenities. The town has not forgotten its origins, however, as several buildings from the mining era have been relocated and preserved in the Frisco Historic Park.
The Frisco-Dillon area is in north central Colorado along I-70, about 70 miles west of Denver.
