Boreas Pass Road was originally the Breckenridge Pass during the 1860’s. It was a route used by prospectors during the gold rush that were crossing from South Park in search of gold in the Blue valley around Breckenridge.

The pass was renamed Boreas by Sidney Dillion who had supervised the track lying to honor the Greek god of North Wind.
