What has stayed the same in the time of COVID-19?

  • If you haven’t come to see us in a while, Frisco is still filled with the same zest for life and adventure that we are excited to share with you!
  • The views, mountains, and trails are still as amazing as they always have been, and now, more than ever, we are all about getting out there and enjoying it all.
  • Frisco Main Street is still charming, inviting, and full of unique local businesses, and Summit Boulevard is still the ideal place to stock up on provisions.

What has changed?

  • How businesses can operate and how we have events and celebrate have needed to change in order to respect everyone’s health by following the guidance and public health orders from Summit County Public Health and the State of Colorado.
  • You will see a very significant commitment to your health (and ours) from all Frisco businesses when you visit. Below is the quickest possible summary of some things you should expect when visiting Frisco and the Summit County community.

Top 12 Things You Should Know About Visiting Frisco & Summit County

  1. We’ve worked hard to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we continue that tough work so you can come here and feel safe, while surrounded by the love of this town and our mountains.
  2. We are encouraging shopping and dining local with our newly launched Love Frisco, Winter Frisco e-gift card progam  through January 15, 2020-  spend $30, get $10; spend $75, get $25; and spend $120, get $40 at LoveFriscoCO.com.
  3. Occupancy is limited to 50% in Frisco retail businesses, including grocery stores. Everyone is urged to send just one member of their household to do grocery shopping and to come prepared with a list so you are done as soon as possible. This is a commonsense way of limiting contact with others and staying healthy.
  4. Personal group gatherings have recently been shown to be a significant source of COVID-19 transmission, so on November 20, 2020 Summit County Public Health came out with an amended public health order to address this behavior so we can #saveourwinter (yep- the stakes are high).
    • All group gatherings are limited to people in your own household only
    • A household is defined as the person or persons who live together in a single residence.
  5. We are gearing up for winter and expect the Frisco Nordic Center to open on Thanksgiving with reduced capacities (more elbow room and fun for you). The Frisco Adventure Park tubing hill has delayed their opening due to increasing cases of COVID in Summit County and is hoping to open sometime in early December, so they are not currently accepting any reservations.
  6. Many Main Street businesses have parklets (think cute decks that fit in parking spots) in front of their businesses. These were built and deployed by the Town of Frisco in order to accomodate fall/winter outdoor dining and shopping whenever possible. Bring your puffy coat and good cheer!
  7. FacIllustration of a woman with a face coveringe masks/coverings are REQUIRED in public spaces in all of Summit County (this includes Frisco) per Summit Public Health Orders and Colorado State orders. We know this may not be the case where you are from, and we know that it is an adjustment. We need you to respect this requirement if you choose to visit this area. We are all sporting some seriously on-trend face coverings, which range from buffs to bandannas to polka dot masks so we don’t spew spittle and get you sick (that got a little graphic- sorry). It’s a small price to pay for a big return- your health.
    • Face coverings must be worn by all humans over the age of 2, in any indoor public spaces and in outdoor locations where maintaining 6 feet of separation is not possible.
    • Face coverings should cover the mouth and nose and can be fabric, non-medical masks. In fact, reserving medical grade masks for medical providers is a great idea.
    • Face coverings can be removed while eating and drinking, and after being seated at a restaurant.
    • Please refer to the Summit County Public Health Order for more information on face coverings.
  8. Restaurants are prohibited from offering indoor dining starting on November 22, 2020 at 5:00pm until COVID cases go down in Summit County, but many are offering takeout, curbside pickup, delivery and to-go services and will need our support now more than ever.  Many Frisco restaurants have changed their operations and are also sporting “parklets’ in front of their businesses for fall/winter outdoor dining when possible. Go to FriscoDining.com for a full guide to Frisco dining. More on restaurants below.
  9. Hotels, motels, and short term rentals are now open with beefed up safety and sanitation protocols. We strongly encourage you to contact your lodging provider for the most up to date information before arriving. More on lodging below.
  10. Events– Right now we are limited to no indoor gatherings and gatherings of no more than 75 outdoors so we are re-imagining events. We are continuously working on new ideas and adapting as the public health situation evolves.
  11. Create your own adventure while using Frisco as your base camp! Activity and tour availability is continuously changing, so we suggest reaching out to your activity provider for their most up-to-date availability and safety protocols. You can also drop us a line at TofInfo@townoffrisco.com or call 800-424-1554, and we’ll help you sort it out!
  12. The Town of Frisco has a single use bag fee of $.25 per paper or plastic single-use bag so please remember to bring your own clean reusable bags and expect to do your own bagging when shopping in Frisco.

  1. Restaurants are closed to indoor dining starting on November 22, 2020 at 5:00pm. Curbside and dining-to-go options are widely available and ideal for a fancy or simple indoor picnic.

      • Go to FriscoDining.com for a full guide to Frisco dining.
  2. Stores are open with a 50% reduced capacity and to enter you must have a face covering. Many are offering curbside pickup as well. Just a reminder to send just one member of your household out grocery shopping, as grocery stores have limited occupancy too, and this is commonsense and easy way to reduce contact.
  3. Personal services (beauty salons, massage studios, spas, etc.,) are available by appointment and have 25% capacity restrictions and physical distancing and face covering requirements.

Top 7 Things to Know About Lodging

  1. Lodging  is open in Frisco and all of Summit County with amped up cleaning and sanitation standards per Summit Public Health and the State of Colorado; this includes hotels and motels, as well as timeshare style properties and short-term vacation-style rentals, and privately owned residences.
  2. As of November 22, 2020, lodging stays must be limited to a single household in any lodging unit, including short-term vacation rentals. A household is defined as the person or persons who live together in a single residence. The single-household limit applies to all lodging stays, including those for which reservations that have already been made. This regulation is in place because Summit Public Health has seen outbreaks (2 or more related cases) when locals or visitors congregate in large groups with lots of households mixed together. We are facing stricter state regulations (think “save our ski season”) if we don’t get our COVID cases under control so we need your help!
  3. The rental of individual rooms in a residence, as a short lodging unit where other occupants/residents are present, is not allowed.
  4. Reservations that include guests from more than one household must be changed or canceled to comply with the latest public health orders. Owners and/or lodging companies responsible for the booking and renting of short-term lodging units will confirm the identity of all guests upon arrival to ensure that folks are just from one household.
  5. Summit Public Health recommends that lodging properties provide at least 72 hours between rentals. Please inquire directly with your lodging provider before arrival for more details.
  6. Guests, employees, vendors and suppliers will be required to wear masks or facial coverings in public/common areas indoors and anywhere outside where six feet of physical distancing can’t be maintained.
  7. Hot tubs, pools, saunas and common areas may be closed to encourage physical distancing. It is best to check directly with the lodging property or amenity.

  1. The  Frisco Nordic Center is expected to open on November  Friday, November 27, 2020 (weather permitting) with day passes for sale only. Rentals and lessons will be available starting Monday, November 30, 2020.
  2. Two Below Zero Sleigh Rides will also be opening, but on November 21, weather permitting, with reduced capacity scenic rides only and a “bring your own blanket” policy.  This means more elbow room and fun for you, but it also means that it will be important to plan ahead and make reservations.
  3. The Frisco Adventure Park tubing hill has delayed their opening due to increasing cases of COVID in Summit County and is hoping to open sometime in early December, so they are not currently accepting any reservations.
  4. The Firsco Adventure Park Beginning Ski/Ride hill is also hoping to open in December.
  5. Recreate responsibly
    1. Move on and find a new favorite spot if a parking lot, trailhead, park, path… is too crowded for you to maintain physical distance and protect your health.
    2. Maintain six feet or more of distance from folks not in your household, and wear a face covering if you can’t do that.
    3.  Refrain from super risky outdoor adventures; this is the time to play it a bit safer; no beginner paragliding off of Peak One this trip.
  6. Love every moment that you are outside and show kindness and caring in your every action.
