Leadville, the Lake County seat, is the highest incorporated city in the United States, situated at 10,152 feet above sea level and nestled at the base of Mt. Elbert, Colorado’s highest peak. 

Elevation: Leadville: 10,152 feet; Twin Lakes: 9,210 feet; Lake County highest point: 14,433 feet; Lake County lowest point: 9,007 feet

Topography: Surrounded by the Sawatch Mountain Range on the west and the Mosquito Range to the east, Lake County is home to two of the state's "Fourteeners." Mt. Elbert at 14,433 ft. and Mt. Massive at 14,421 ft. Leadville sits in a high mountain valley, which envelopes the headwaters of the Arkansas River.

Climate: We average 310 days of sunshine each year. Average snowfall annually is a whopping 200+ inches with snow on ground from the end of October until middle of May. A typical summer day is sunny, in the 70's, and evening temperatures in the 40's. The humidity is very low and brief afternoon showers are not unexpected. A typical winter day is sunny and bright with highs averaging in the mid 30's and lows in the single digits.

Transportation: Leadville/Lake County and Twin Lakes can be reached by automobile or by flying into Denver, Colorado Springs or the Eagle County Airport. 

Leadville has a rich and colorful history. Unlike many cities and towns of the old west, Leadville was never really a "cowboy" town. Instead, the city was settled and grown by miners and merchants. Many of them came from Central and Eastern Europe. They brought a rich culture with them that gave Leadville a cosmopolitan flair way ahead of its time.
