It has been often repeated that 2017 was a once-in-a-generation sellers market in Summit County. That said, summer of 2018 continues the trend toward a healthy real estate market here in the high country. While July 2018 showed stronger numbers than July 2017 regarding number of sales, there was a 6.12% softening in sales year-to-date. Considering the record low number of available listings and the slight uptick in mortgage rates, that decline is slight and, on the whole, results indicate a strong market.

Seventy-two percent of all buyers in July of 2018 came from within Colorado, and only 1% of Summit County buyers are internationals. Interestingly, in Breckenridge this July, single family, duplex and condo sales all outpaced the July 2017 numbers,

Summit County is surrounded by open space and trails. From Forest Service, Wilderness areas, Bureau of Land Management lands and county and local facilities, there are close to 300 miles of natural surface trails and 55 miles of county bike paths. In fact, three-quarters of county land is federally managed as National Forest.

All that land comes with amazing recreational opportunities and fuels an outdoor industry economic engine. But that’s not the only fuel that thousands of acres of trees provide. Yes, where there are trees there can be fire. (See our page on wildfire protection) In fact, lodge pole pines are prevalent in Summit County and count on fire as part of their regenerative cycle.  So how can you best prepare when living nestled

Summer in the high country can be shockingly short, and astoundingly beautiful. The abbreviated period of summer helps to concentrate all our high country warm weather fun seeking and forces us to focus as not to waste a precious moment. Summer at 9,000 feet means few insects, crisp mornings and cool evenings and bright, dry sunny days with the bluest skies you’ve ever seen. Here are some tips to help you wrestle every last drop out of summer at altitude.

Since the beginning of Ski Bum Time™, which roughly corresponds with the advent of the annual Warren Miller ski movies in 1950, there have been summer high country festivals designed to keep the winter stoke flowing.

Unlike winter, which is all about business (if you mean skiing, snowboarding, Nordic skiing, skinning, fat biking…) summer is all about play in the high country. And high country play is play that you want to take seriously. So now that we’ve got that settled- what are we playing at 9000+ feet?

Let’s start with golf, since the altitude’s effect here is almost 100% in the pure benefit department. Unless your first connected drive ever happened above 9000 feet, you should immediately notice the 20% or so of additional yardage that this altitude unlocks. Less resistance equals more distance equals hero golfers equals fun. Get out there and crush some drives, folks.

So if the “less resistance equals more distance” can also be read as “lack of air”
