Bluebird mornings, sunny skies, low humidity, and abundant sunshine make Breck the perfect spring or summer vacation destination. Now is the ideal time to see why we're more than just your favorite ski getaway. As the sun shines a little brighter and the days become a little longer, we like to spend our time exploring on foot, horseback, kayak, and more! We're excited to share some of our favorite activities with you and can't wait to welcome you to Breck this spring!
A Day on The Water:
After a fun but cold winter on the slopes, we look forward to warmer weather. We eagerly trade our snowsuits for swimsuits and beat the heat with a day on the water! This year calls for days spent boating on Lake Dillon, kayaking Frisco Bay Marina, or flyfishing in Lower Mohawk Lake. You can even rent kayaks, fishing boats, or pontoon boats from the Frisco Marina. This year, try something new and head to Charter Sports to rent SUP boards. Exploring Maggie Pond on an SUP board is a great way to take in the scenery and views. This activity provides a fun adventure everyone will remember. Speaking of memorable experiences, have you ever been white water rafting down the Arkansas River? Here's your chance to experience the natural beauty of Colorado from the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Local companies offer guided tours for both the expert and the beginner. As a guest of Great Western Lodging, book with Breckenridge's first and favorite rafting company - Performance Tours Rafting - to receive a 10% discount!
Nature enthusiasts! Your warm-weather adventure awaits! Breckenridge has long been your preferred skiing destination as our extended ski season provides multiple chances to visit Breck. But did you know spring also provides an abundance of activities other than skiing? The mild temps and beautiful weather create the perfect opportunity to experience a snowshoe hike, dog sled tour, or one of the newer and most popular activities—a fat-tire bike ride through town.
Want to go horseback riding through the Rocky Mountains? Many local ranches offer a range of activities for all experience levels—including beginner rides packed with panoramic views both on and off the open trail, to more advanced experiences like river crossings and cattle drives. Whether you're on the horse or behind the horse, you can also check out Breckenridge Stables for sleigh, trail, and carriage rides.
Local Eateries & Shopping:
Forget something like your favorite pair of ski goggles, boots, or might it be time for a new board? Whatever you are looking for, a collection of unique shops and boutiques along Main St. allows the shopper to explore the latest in kids' clothes & toys, men's & women's fashion, mountain home decor, and much more.
Come hungry! In Breck, you can find a wide selection of family-friendly restaurant options serving delicious inspired meals—from American BBQ, Italian, Asian, French, and more. A local favorite is Motherhood Tavern, serving delicious American dishes. Join them for live music Friday –Sunday. They even have a pet-friendly patio!
