Small town, lot's to do in a week vacation.
Roads get icy, be careful not to slide around too much...
In a nutshell
I had a great time in the Rockies without snow
Every spring the lid comes off the "glory hole" of Dillon Reservoir, with hopes that the lake will fill enough from melt off to overflow the dam. In 2004 the water came within 1 inch.
In Autumn the lid is placed back on the glory hole for the winter and the lake freezes over.

Favorite thing: OK, technically it went on in Montana, and while I hoped it might be something that, like in the manual says "will go out on it's own after three cycles", it didn't. Where to take my car?
Finding a decent mechanic in a new place is an intimidating process. I started calling around and found that just not everyone in Summit County works on Mercedes. So after a couple of referrals, I ended up at Ski Country Shell, just off the Dam Road in Frisco. I made an appointment for 9 am and dropped it off, leaving the keys with the service dept. Then I went over to the Holiday Inn, across the parking lot to await a call to see what the verdict was.
Within 7 minutes I got a call reporting what the computer code was and telling me they needed to dig a little deeper. 2 hours later I got a call saying it was finished and ready to go. All it needed was new spark plugs and I was set. $200 (you can hardly get someone to open the hood for $200 in California) later, I was on my way with my car running great.
Holly, the service dept. manager, was intelligent, helpful and wrote down the computer code for if it happened again. She also told me what to watch out for in the future.
I was impressed and pleased.
