Summer temperatures rarely exceed the mid-70s, with cool, crisp nights. You can golf Mt. Massive, America's highest golf course (where golf balls travel farther and straighter, due to the thin air!), raft, fly fish in gold medal waters, hike, bike and explore Leadville's legendary history.

Winters are sunny and wonderfully snowy, with family-friendly Ski Cooper just nine miles from town. Other winter activities include snowshoeing, sled dug "mushing," cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling and even swimming at the Lake County Pool (84 degrees year-round).
