The exemplary average annual snowfall of over 300 inches doesn’t hurt either. Located in the snow-covered Rocky Mountains, the area offers a ton of backcountry snowmobiling adventures. You may want to make a point of riding the 4.5-mile Georgia Pass Road, rated as “more difficult”, which will take you past the town site of Parkville, the main mining town in Summit County during the gold rush that was founded around 1860. All that remains now of the once bustling town is the cemetery. At the pass’ 11,585-foot summit, you won’t want to miss, nor are you likely to forget, the spectacular views over Breckenridge, Keystone, and Copper Mountain.
