Frisco [1] is a small town in the heart of Summit County, Colorado. Surrounded by National Forest System (NFS) lands to the north, west, and south and by Dillon Reservoir to the east, Frisco is embedded in year-round recreation opportunities in its backyard.

Frisco [2] has a rich and varied past, serving as a home, a workplace and a playground for groups as disparate as the Ute Indians, trappers, miners and avid outdoor recreationalists. The Town was first officially chartered in 1879 and by 1882 two railroads had laid tracks to the newly-formed community. The mining boom, along with the businesses, hotels, and saloons that came with it, lasted well into the 1900s. Frisco, however, was hit hard by the Great Depression. In 1930, only 18 full-time residents remained. But Frisco rebounded, showing a remarkable resiliency in difficult times. This resiliency now helps to define the mountain character of the Town, even as it continues to develop into a modern, sustainable, family-oriented community.
