Winter enthusiasts will enjoy more than 300 inches of snow, 2,300 skiable acres spread across four peaks, 155 trails, five terrain parks, two half-pipes, and eight bowls. Ride the highest chairlift in North America, guide your snowmobile above the tree line, take a moonlight snowshoe trek, or experience the thrill of dogsledding. Two Nordic centers offer miles of cross-country skiing, and indoor and outdoor ice-skating rinks make it easy to get time on the ice. In town, the old-fashioned sledding hill is sure to get the whole family giggling.

Tear Up the Town

Off the slopes, this Victorian mining town offers a host of signature winter parties, more than 200 independent shops, boutiques, and galleries, and more than 75 restaurants and bars serving award-winning cuisine and locally made libations. After fun-filled days on and off the slopes, relax with a renewing massage at one of the more than 15 world-class spas. Check out the Breckenridge Arts District, visit a museum like the Barney Ford House, explore Breckenridge’s mining history at the Welcome Center, or enjoy a presentation at the Backstage Theater.

Founded more than 150 years ago by prospectors in search of gold, Breckenridge still attracts travelers in search of adventure.
