Winter and Spring in Breckenridge

From jumping in powder stashes, to zipping along miles of tracks, tackling the local sledding hill or just raising a glass to the day, we're happiest in the snow. And we're always looking for more. More thrills, more firsts, more best day evers and more friends to join us this winter.  Find out what winter in Breckenridge is all about.

Winter + Spring Activities

Breckenridge is an outdoor paradise in the winter. The ample amounts of snow that our town receives (more than almost any other place in Colorado) provides the perfect playground for tons of great activities. With five huge peaks spanning 2,908 acres, skiing and snowboarding at Breckenridge Ski Resort is an awe-inspiring experience no matter what ability. Every beginner and intermediate trail is groomed nightly so you can enjoy endless turns throughout your day. Ride North America’s highest chairlift, the Imperial Express, up to the high alpine bowls for unforgettable views and steeps. If you’re looking for terrain parks, Breckenridge has four—one for every skill level.  Wish you were here? Take a peek what’s going on with our on-mountain web cams.
