6 Mountains & 1 Charming Town

Frisco is an ideal base camp for winter adventure with a charming Main Street at the center of big mountains. Ski or snowboard at six world-class resorts within 30 minutes of Frisco: Copper Mountain (7 min), Breckenridge (15 min), Keystone (20 min), Loveland (20 min), Arapahoe Basin (25 min), and Vail (30 min). Frisco also sports a lift-assisted beginner ski and ride hill and tubing hill, 28 kilometers of groomed Nordic trails, backcountry skiing, and miles of trails on public lands for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. 

The Frisco Adventure Park Beginner Ski and Ride Hill is Frisco’s own beginner ski and ride hill just four minutes from Frisco’s Main Street. This beginner hill is reminiscent of the friendly community hills of years past, where families learned to ski and ride together and the lodge and parking were a stone’s throw from the hill. The hill was founded in 2010 with this throwback vibe, and new skiers and riders will find a hill free of crowds and full of learning opportunities. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 970-668-2558. A limited number of tickets are offered daily, and they often sell out. The ski and ride hill is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Copper Mountain is a quick seven-minute drive from Frisco’s Main Street. Frisco is Copper’s town, and Copper is Frisco’s home mountain. The best way to get from Frisco to Copper is on the free Summit Stage bus, making a trip to Copper easy and quick while you make Frisco your base camp.

Copper is a unique mountain resort with a laid-back and inclusive vibe that represents the best of Colorado. The lifties are kind. There are a variety of great places to grab a beer and a bite to eat. There is free ice-skating in Center Village (just bring your own skates). In winter and summer, the Rocky Mountain Coaster weaves through forests, topping out at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour as one of North America’s longest alpine coasters. 

Boredom is just not possible in Frisco, but you might catch a case of FOMO (fear of missing out). But not to worry — Frisco is welcoming and laid-back, with great dining, shopping, and wallet-friendly lodging, so come check us out for your next winter adventure. Enjoy a laid-back mountain town experience just 90 minutes from Denver.
