Default Summit County

Hey Guys

Couple of quick questions, I'm heading out to Breckenridge with some friends and family in March, the first 5 days were actually stay ski in/out, then after that my two roommates and are paying for a place ourselves. Where would you guys recommend us staying in Dillon, Silverthrone, Frisco, ect. Were going to be without a car the extra two days were staying, so were trying to find someplace thats with in Taxi distance to the Summit County Ski Bus.

Whats the deal with the bus is it public transportation or what?

The public transport is free and goes throughout the county. I would recommend Frisco if you are going to be riding Breck and for whatever reason you don't want to actually stay in Breck.

Another question since you are obviously more familiar with the area then me. Where would you recommend to stay in Breckenridge itself. I was looking and saw some place on Obritz for $99 bucks (
Breckenridge Mountain Lodge, reviews said it was a dump) a night, were only going to be there for two days, but all three of us are 21-22 years of age which makes renting a car and checking into some places a pain.

If you do Frisco check out the Fireside Inn or Lodge can't remember the exact name but it's a hostel/B and B fairly reasonable and the rooms are nice, plus I heard the breakfasts are money. If you're doing Breck check out some VRBO you can sometimes find stuff that's dirt cheap. Or hit up couchsurfing.com and see. If you're brave get a tent!

Yeah what he's not telling you is that bus stop is on the Copper bus route which means you'd take that to main street Frisco, get off then depending what time of day either wait a half hour or an hour. Or else you could walk the 15 minutes to the Transfer center, plus the Ramada is crap.

Check the Frisco Best Western instead you're a 5 minute walk from the Frisco Transfer center and the rates aren't too bad just don't get a smoking room that place is like an ash tray in those rooms.
