Summer in the Mountains

June 3, 2013

Image

Summer in the mountains is a beautiful time of year. Leave the heat and head up the canyon where you’ll find the weather to be at least 10 degrees cooler. There are so many activities to keep anyone busy at any activity level. You can hit the trails for some hiking or mountain biking. Many mountain towns now have zip lines and alpine slides as well as free concerts all summer long. For example, in Park City you have Saturday concerts at Canyons Resort and Wednesday concerts at Deer Valley. You can also hit one of many mountain festivals including the Telluride Blue Grass Festival, Crested Butte‘s Wildflower Festival, Aspen Food and Wine Classic and Breckenridge‘s Festival of Film. There is something for everyone. Check out what you’ll find in some of our top mountain towns this summer:
