Every January, teams from all over the world come to Breckenridge to compete in one of the winter’s most unique yet impressive competitions. This event doesn’t include a pair of skis or a snowboard though, but rather homemade sculpting tools to take a 20-ton block of snow and turn it into a a creative display of art. The international Snow Sculpting Championship might not get the publicity as some of the more well known events that take place in the Colorado Rockies, but the talent and skill on display is nothing short of spectacular.

It’s no secret that Breckenridge is beautiful, just ask Forbes or Thrillest. And while you could put together what seems like a never ending list of reason’s this place is in fact so beautiful, one really stands out to me. You typically see it every night and it usually doesn’t stick around for too long. I’m talking about the amazing sunsets that cast over Breckenridge and the surrounding areas.
After an unbelievably beautiful June that followed a very wet May, we are now into July and it appears mother nature is going to play nice again this year allowing Breckenridge to host it’s annual Independence Day firework celebration this Saturday, July 4th. While there aren’t many bad viewing area’s, I wanted to give you the inside scoop on where the BEST places to view the fireworks in Breckenridge are!
As we arrived to the Kodi Rafting outpost in Buena Vista, the sun was shining, the air was warm and we knew the water was running high. We were all excited for an adventurous day on the Arkansas River. We decided to do a full day trip as most of us have never done both the upper and lower parts of the river. The first part of the trip you really get to take in the scenery and views of the Browns Canyon National Monument. If you’re lucky you might even spot a big horned sheep! About halfway through the trip, the river really starts to pick up as you go through “Siedel’s” section. With the knowledge and experience of our
amazing raft guides Boston and Flakes, we all felt very confident that we could power through it safely. Soon after, our guides tied up our rafts and cooked us lunch on the riverside. Once we hopped back on the river for the lower section, we approached a section called “Zoom Flume”. The name speaks for itself, it is a very fast paced and exhilarating stretch. Whenever we got to take a short break from paddling our guides told us stories and facts about the Arkansas River and Browns Canyon. Overall we would all rate our experience a 10/10.
