hen you take Exit 205 from Colorado’s Interstate 70, you exit to hundreds of miles of quiet, scenic trails, lined with colorful wildflowers, groves of aspen trees and jagged peaks. You exit to music next to the world’s highest deep-water marina, with sweeping vistas of the Gore and Tenmile mountain ranges. You exit to a burgeoning arts scene, with world-class dramatic talent performed in an intimate setting. And you exit to scenic shopping along the Blue River, which also provides “Gold Medal” waters for anglers of all levels.

Exit 205 – about an hour’s drive from Denver – is your gateway to adventure. There’s something in Dillon and Silverthorne for everyone, of any age and in any season. Take a pontoon ride on Lake Dillon, or learn how to fly fish from our expert guides. Enjoy our family-friendly festivals, free concerts and farmers markets. In the winter, make Dillon and Silverthorne your base camp (with views that can’t be beat) for skiing at five world-class resorts.
