Winter Games History
The Summit County 50+ Winter Games has been a longtime tradition. The Winter Games originally started in 1981 at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. In 1982, the games were held at Devil's Thumb Ranch near Winter Park. The Games moved to Summit County in 1983. The hosts were Arapahoe Basin and the Frisco Peninsula Nordic Center. In 1984, Keystone became the Winter Games home as well as the Nordic Center in Frisco. In 1985-1998, the Games were held in Breckenridge, with the Nordic events held at the Breckenridge Nordic Area. In 1999, Keystone Resort and the Frisco Nordic Center became home for the Games, where they are still held today.
