More than 125 years ago, Montezuma was a major silver-mining center best reached in winter on cross-country skis or snowshoes. Today, the route from Montezuma to Breckenridge is the site of the annual Mail Run race, in honor of the mail carriers who made the trek long ago. For fun, you can drive the few miles up-valley from Keystone to partake of the web of wooded trails on snowshoes or skinny skis; then stop for refreshment at the funky Soulhouse Cafe.
