9 Reasons You Don’t Want to Miss Spring in Breckenridge

Seasons: Winter/Spring

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?

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!

4. Apres

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 DJs and live music to open mic nights at the local bars. Check out the schedule!

7. Off-Mountain Adventures

Spring’s heavy snowfall allows all your favorite winter activities to continue into spring.   Enjoy snowshoeing, fat tire biking, scenic sleigh rides, sledding and more!  Need ideas on what to do?  Browse our extensive list of winter activities in Breckenridge.
