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

You’re so close! But need to get up to the mountains. And you’re most likely taking the I70 route from Denver. Traffic can be heavy, conditions can be rough – all within (what should be) an hour and a half drive. We’re here to help you get here as fast and safe as possible. Here are some of our travel tips to get you to Breckenridge no stress, only smiles.

1. Keep an eye on the weather

In case you haven’t heard, Colorado weather is impossible to predict. Days can start off bluebird and end in a blizzard-y mess, and vice-versa. Always keep an eye on the weather by checking the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) site for updated webcam images, news on closures/accidents and traffic speed. You can also sign-up for Travel Alerts via text or email for saved routes and regions in Colorado.

 

2. Make sure you’ve got 4WD + SNOW TIRES

Safety always comes first! The first step to success for dodging traffic and saving time on your way to the mountains is driving a vehicle that is equipped with 4WD/AWD and snow tires. The I-70 corridor is known to be moody in the winters, particularly as you approach Loveland Pass and the Eisenhower Tunnel. No matter the season, it is always a good idea to have a 4WD capable vehicle with snow tires when driving in Colorado. Breckenridge road conditions are ever-changing and having these features on your car is great way to ensure safety on the roads.
