Who’s the fool? You are if you don’t ski or ride Breckenridge in April. Really. That’s no joke.
April is the locals’ time to hit the slopes. The snow is still good, the sun is warm and the crowds are gone (or nearly gone). Weekends can still be busy, but mid week is ideal for ripping up some corduroy or hitting an early morning session on a powder day.
Breckenridge in April:
The average high temperature is a balmy 44.3 degrees.
Spring Fever in Breckenridge hits hard. In some years, the festivities start in mid-March. This year (2017), it all starts April 1 and ends with the resort’s closing day on April 23, 2017. Concerts, rail jams, slopestyle contests and The Imperial Challenge highlight the Spring Fever festivities. In town, the Breckenridge Spring Fever Beer Festival usually features 35+ breweries, food and music.
Tips: Closing day for Breckenridge Ski Resort is usually the second weekend of April, but it could be the third (depending on the Easter schedule) and, if the snow has been plentiful, the resort has been known to extend their season and stay open an extra weekend or two. Check conditions and closing dates www.breckenridge.com. This is the locals’ time to ski and ride. It gets zany and cheap(er). Lodging, dining and shopping can be less expensive in April.
