With over 200 inches of snow for the new season, Breckenridge Ski Resort is having a record-breaking winter.
Have you been to Breckenridge yet this winter season? Snow conditions have been amazing, as snow storms have been plentiful – producing 233” of new snow for the season (as of 2/12/19), allowing 32 lifts of 34 to be open, and 2,908 ride-able acres. Breckenridge has been an incredible place to visit and ski, and locals and tourists alike have had many powder days already due to a record-breaking season. To top off the good news, with more new good news, Breckenridge has now announced to extend the ski and snowboarding season to stay open until Memorial Day!
With this exciting news in mind, we wanted to provide you with top reasons why you should visit your our cute, fun and snowy Colorado Rocky Mountain town in May.
1. Low nightly rates for Breckenridge vacation rentals – we mean real low
High snow totals, and low nightly rates is our motto (most of the time). With monthly snowfall totals having high monthly averages this winter, May is looking like a really good month to visit. May is a time that is not common for a lot of visitors to check out our mountain town – this means, we are able to drop rates, and allow low nightly lodging to visitors and repeat guests. Start searching for the perfect vacation rental for a May visit and you will see our low nightly rates – no promotion code needed for these low rates. Also – stayed with us before? Be sure to contact us and ask about our Repeat Guest discount to save up to 10%!
2. Feel like a local in May
With May not offering any big holidays, it’s not a common destination month for Breckenridge visits. This means that when you visit in May, you can feel like a local and enjoy a quieter, not as busy mountain town. It may be a little easier to make reservations at restaurants in Downtown Breckenridge (we recommend Giampietro's for delicious Italian!), less crowded on the ski slopes, and the hustle and bustle has slowed down before it ramps back up for the Summer months. To feel even more local, enjoy a ski-in/ski-out Breckenridge vacation rental – this is SO convenient and allows you to really take advantage of full ski days without having to worry about hoping on a shuttle to get access to the lifts.
3. Spring Skiing at it’s finest
May can be a beautiful weather month in Breckenridge! This means warmer temperatures, with sunny days, and soft, fluffy snow on the ski trails. To fully enjoy the spring skiing, we recommend staying in a home with a private hot tub – this allows you to enjoy a fun, Spring day on the mountain and enjoy a nice relaxing post-ski hot tub session to watch the sunset and let those muscles relax.
4. Last chance to celebrate Winter
With Breckenridge keeping the ski resort open past April, this gives dedicated skiers and mountain-town travelers an opportunity to enjoy winter one last time before Summer hits. This is rare as Breckenridge Ski Resort typically closes in mid April. Here are some of the best complexes in Breckenridge that will have availability during this time of year. These complexes are popular due to their proximity to town and the resort, and the amenities they offer.
Visiting Breckenridge in May is an underrated time of year to book a ski trip! Take advantage of the excellent snowfall for the year, allowing the ski resort to stay open during this beautiful spring month!
