What to expect:

Snowcat drops family at historic cabin with mountain views

The Breckenridge Scenic Snowcat Tour offers jaw-dropping views of the Ten-Mile Range.

Arrive early to the Breckenridge Nordic Center to enjoy an adult beverage or hot cocoa next to one of the best fireplaces in Breckenridge.  Then, you’ll head outside to embark on your scenic snowcat tour. Take note, this isn’t your average snowcat.  This is a luxurious, state of the art Prinoth Snowcat designed by Pinifarina in Italy. It features a heated, all-glass cabin to give you uninterrupted views of the historic legend forest, mountains, and wildlife. Halfway through the tour, you’ll stop at a historic cabin for s’mores and hot chocolate.  The unbeatable views make it a perfect spot for family photos.  There are also sleds and toboggans to take out if your family wants to take a few runs down the trail.  After your hot cocoa break, you’ll head back into the snowcat and back to the Breckenridge Nordic Center.

What to wear

Family warming hands by a fire

Learn about Breckenridge’s mining history while sipping hot chocolate and sampling s’mores by the fire in a historic mining cabin.

You’ll be nice and toasty in the heated cat, so be sure to dress in layers so you can take your coat and hat off if you get too warm.  You don’t need to wear snowpants unless you plan to jump on a sled at the cocoa stop.  Wear sturdy shoes as you’ll walk short distances to the cat and cabin.

Plan Ahead
