Serving the needs of visiting skiers became Frisco's economic mainstay after World War II. Nearby Copper Mountain Resort has been a popular skiing destination since it opened in the early 1970s.

In addition to skiing, the area also offers such recreational activities as bicycling, mountain biking, fishing and sailing. The Lake Dillon Water Taxi provides transportation across the lake between the marinas in Frisco and Dillon. The service is available Mon.-Fri. 10-5, Sat.-Sun. 10-6.
