Breckenridge Weather: Summer (June – August)

Warm summer temperatures and lots of sunshine make it easy to spend all your time outside.

Summer in Breckenridge brings glorious sunshine, breathtaking bluebird skies and beautiful greenery. At an average Summer temperature of 70 degrees during the day and 50 degrees at night, typical summer apparel works great for most activities. Because the sun in the mountains is strong and we are at a high altitude, we recommend wearing sun protection and bringing a reusable water bottle to fill up at fill-up stations around town. A quick afternoon rain shower is to be expected and will come and go, refreshing all of the natural mountain foliage. Evenings will cool off considerably and often call for a hoodie or light jacket.

• Average daytime temperature: 70 degrees
• Average nighttime temperature: 50 degrees
