We cover approximately 140 square miles of Summit County, Colorado, including the towns of Breckenridge and Blue River, the Breckenridge Ski Resort, and unincorporated sections of Summit County. Our district boundaries are Hoosier Pass to the South, Frisco town limits to the North, the Continental Divide to the East, and the Ten Mile range to the West.
