History
Frisco was founded in 1873 and officially chartered in 1879. The mining boom lasted until 1918 and the town reached a population of 250. By 1930 during the Depression, the population had dropped to just 18 people, yet it was one of the few old mining towns still in existence. Skiing revived Frisco beginning in 1946. With the opening of Arapahoe Basin in 1946, skiing became the economic engine of Summit County. Breckenridge followed in 1961, Keystone in 1970, and Copper Mountain in 1972.
