In May 2017, Dillon welcomed the newest REI Co-op to town. REI provides expertise and education with quality equipment and gear for camping, climbing, cycling, running, snowsports, paddling, and more.
Megan Odom, store manager, says, “Summit County is a hub for adventure to local residents and outdoor enthusiasts from across the state of Colorado, and visitors from around the world. We are excited to be part of this incredible community that is so passionate for our local outdoor spaces.”
REI also offers public events, presentations, and classes. Learn more at www.rei.com
Swim, Bike, Run
We’re home to the highest tris in the world. The Rocky Mountain Triathlon will be held on June 30, 2018 with sprint and international distances. Both courses feature an open water swim at North Pond Park, a scenic bike ride in the shadows of the Gore Range, and a run along the Blue River Trail.
On September 10, 2018, 106° West will draw athletes from around the world for half and quarter Ironman-distance courses. Athletes have exclusive permission to swim in Dillon Reservoir, and the spectacular body of water is the centerpiece for the run and the bike, as well.

Higgles Ice Cream is made in Silverthorne with Colorado dairy and cane sugar. We are a
woman-owned small business making small batch artisan and traditional ice cream flavors. We use local produce and products as much as possible. We are fortunate in that we are equidistant from the Front Range, which provides
innovative artisanal goods for our ingredients, and the West Slope, which gives us beautiful produce for our fruit recipes and sorbets.
