5 Reasons You Should Spring Break In Breck

Breathtaking mountains, endless outdoor activities, Main Street festivals, and the authentic community are my reasons for making Breck, home.

Spring Break is one of the best times to visit Breckenridge. The sun is out, the snow is light and fluffy, and there’s a lot of fun events going on in town. Hit the snowy slopes and get your goggle tan in the same day. Après-ski on a sunny patio and enjoy the countless dining and nightlife options. The mountains are calling!

Here are 5 reasons why you should Spring Break in Breck…

 

1. POWDER

We’re already having an amazing snow season and the conditions are nothing short of epic in the spring. The weather is always changing, but the spring snow tends to have a great rep. With sunny, soft snow days after 12+ inch storms, you’re bound to have great conditions.

Tip: Hit the slopes early! Spring Breakers tend to take their time getting on the slopes. Cough, brunch, cough. Get your lift tickets and rentals ahead of time and head up for first chair to beat the crowds!

 

2. Sunshine

Bring on the goggle tan (but wear your sunscreen)! The longer spring days mean more time for activities on and off the slopes!

Snowshoeing

There are so many trails to enjoy in the spring! Check out Boreas Pass Road, Sallie Barber Mine and Burro Trail. Snowshoes can be rented at any of the Nordic centers such as Gold Run Nordic Center or The Breckenridge Nordic Center as well as the many ski shops in and around town.
