Despite calling for a bit of snow later today, the weather forecast for later this week and into the weekend looks great. The longer days and warmer temps of spring are getting more and more people excited about being outside. When was the last time you had a great tan from skiing all day? The last time you had a great day on the slopes, wearing just a light jacket, not all bundled up with your neck gaiter and hand warmers? Well if you’ve never experienced spring skiing, April is the best time to be in Breck. The slopes are in about the best shape of the season, with a mid-mountain base depth now of 67″ and 100% of all terrain open. The big Spring Break and Easter crowds are now behind us, so if you are lucky enough to have a Breck spring trip planned this April, you will see why so many locals think this is the best time of year to be out skiing. And when you’re off the hill, Town is that much more enjoyable with less crowds, some restaurant specials, and much much more going on.
Some of the best entertainment this spring can be found at the base of Peak 8 with the free Breckenridge Bud Light Concert Series. Starting this Saturday, April 2nd, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones will be taking the stage. They will be producing their high energy ska-core sounds which have been entertaining crowds for 27 years. Then on Sunday the 3rd, the SoCal-bred Dirty Heads will be performing their rock/reggae/hip-hop sound that represents positivity and good vibes, with a melodic style that includes hip hop and ska punk genres.
