Frisco’s 45th annual Gold Rush Weekend connects the mining history of the past with the Nordic traditions of the present.  Frisco, Colorado’s Main Street of the Rockies was once the center of Colorado’s mining-boom and the convergence of two major railroads and stagecoach routes. At more than 9,000 feet, Frisco still values its rich mining history while being surrounded by some of the best ski resorts Colorado has to offer.  Click here for event details or to register online.
