Dillon Marina to open winter loops for activities, ice skating

By Cody Jones, Summit Daily

With the water in Dillon Marina frozen over, it’s time for Dillon officials to get the ice ready for winter recreation activities.

Dillon marketing and events director Kerstin Anderson said the loop will look similar to last winter, when the multiuse recreation track was built about 20 feet out onto the lake and marked with bamboo poles every 80 yards or so.

The longer 2-mile route loops individuals around the reservoir and runs along the shoreline from Dillon Marina to the Dillon Nature Preserve, down to Roberts Tunnel and all the way across the lake to Lodgepole Street.

There is also a shorter loop available for those who don’t want to do the entire loop.

The reservoir trails will accommodate the usual winter staples like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, fat biking, hiking, ice kiteboarding, ice fishing and ice sailing.

New this year will be a community ice rink, which will be maintained as the weather allows throughout the winter.
