In case you haven’t realized it yet, spring in Breckenridge is the perfect time of year. There’s a ton of new snowfall, the temperatures start to rise, and endless sunny days mean you can finally break out those shorts that have been lost in your closet for months. Not to mention, there are some great events going on too! We’ve put together our top 9 reasons you can’t miss spring in Breckenridge this March, April and May so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!
1. The Sunshine
300 days of sunshine on average every year. But, really who’s counting?

Not all girls are made from sugar and spice. Some are made from adventure, courage, brains, and determination.⚡ . . . It's only been a few weeks since we went and I'm already ready to go back to the mountains! I need suggestions for hiking destinations in March! Has anyone been to Banff, Canada, the Dolomites, Italy, or the PNW Coast, Oregon in March? Those are my top choices right now. ❄🤔 . . . #littlegrandadventures #nomadicgals #LGAxUSA #colorado #breckenridge #visitcolorado
2. Spring Skiing Attire
It wouldn’t be spring skiing without wacky outfits from bikinis to full-on costumes. The higher sun angle brings warmer and longer days that have a full-moon effect on skiers and riders. You’ll see it all this time of year.
3. The Events
In Breckenridge, we believe that Spring is nature’s way of saying, “let’s party!” That’s why we’ve filled our calendar with festivals, events, and competitions! Join us for Mardi Gras, Breck Pride and more!

See you in March! . . . #unitedbybreck #gay #breckenridge #gayskiweek #colorado #vacationstoke #travel #visitcolorado #BreckPride #gayskiweek #gaytravel #lgbt #gayevents #pride #prideweek #gaydenver #gaycolorado
Apres ski is taken to a whole new level in the spring. After a fun-filled day playing in the snow, find your favorite patio or deck, order a beer or your favorite beverage, and enjoy! You’ve earned it.
5. Big Dumps
Did you know? March and April are two of the snowiest months of the year. It’s not uncommon to be skiing waist-deep pow one day and slush bumps the next.
6. The Late Night Scene
Our late night scene is filled with live music, dancing, dining, drink specials and more! Breckenridge has everything from big name artists at the Riverwalk Center to open mic nights at the local bars. Check out the schedule!
7. Off-Mountain Adventures
Whitewater rafting season arrives in Colorado every spring. When it rains and snows a lot in April and May or if we have a quick warm-up in the spring, Mother Nature will provide an early start to the whitewater season. Be sure to check out other spring activities like fly-fishing, snowshoeing and fat biking!
8. A New, Extended Season
Breckenridge Resort is now open until Memorial Day! The Breck Plunge pond skim event will help kick off the Resort’s extended 2018-19 season with a splash, April 21st, 2019. Join the fun at the base of Peak 8 with live music, food, drinks and great people!
9. The Views
In spring, the mountains are still full of snow and can be seen from almost anywhere in town. To capture these views for yourself, check out the top Instagrammed locations in Breckenridge.
