Stoke is always high in the mountains! There is never a dull moment in Breckenridge. From the endless outdoor activities, to the unique local atmosphere... this place has it all.

Make this winter your best yet with these local tips!


There is a simple formula for success on your ski vacation: wake up early! Early risers are always rewarded with fresh tracks, no crowds and massive amounts of vertical feet covered over the course of the day. Take an early lunch and score even more empty(ish) runs while the rest of the mountain is on their noon lunch-break.


Chug, chug, chug. Hydration is the key to staying healthy and active at high elevation. Drink water aggressively throughout the course of your Breckenridge vacation. Don’t forget to hydrate when you are on the mountain and having too much fun to think about it. Bring along a hydration pack to ensure you have water on-hand at all times.



We get it. You find yourself in winter wonderland and all you want to do is pop on your skis or strap into your snowboard. This winter, do yourself a favor and mix-up your plan to take advantage of ALL of the winter activities Breckenridge has to offer. Go for a rip on a snowmobile, slow time down on a snowshoe excursion, or dog-sled your way through the woods. Check out our list for the top things to do this winter in Breck!



Pics or it didn’t happen, folks. With endless winter beauty at every turn, be sure to take advantage of the chances to capture photos & videos of your Breckenridge adventure. There is no better way to fondly look back on a family vacation and get excited for the next. EpicMix is a great option for quality on-mountain portraits that can be viewed and downloaded straight from your smartphone. Look out for the green EpicMix photo stations scattered around the mountain. Show us how you and your family are winning winter by tagging #visitbreck on all your posts!



We’ve got an incredible variety of lodging choices, from multi-family to cozy getaway. And if you book early, you’re sure to get the perfect location for skiing, relaxing and exploring, all at the best rates. Pick a central location for your vacation rental. Think through your daily activities and do some fancy triangulating (or let us do it for you) to find just the right spot. And keep in mind there are many public transportation and mountain shuttles available to make getting around even easier. Book now! 



With so many activities to do in the mountains, it becomes incredibly difficult to remember to slow down while on vacation. Don’t forget, you are here to unwind and enjoy some down time. Being a winter winner doesn’t mean you are go-go-go all the time. Grab a hot beverage, sit by the fire and enjoy the company that surrounds you!
